There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Here's the basic chords for the song, I'm sure i saw the intro riff somewhere but I 
find it right now.. enjoy.

A                E
I had girl I knew
F#m              E            (continue for verse)
she grew became a woman now

I think that she teaches at
 one of the schools downtown,

we used to roll the windows down
and play the music loud

smoking out in her car
Lost in west Omaha,

and we'd get drunk and kiss
our bodies twist like shoe laces.

And we never came untied;
I guess you were just my type.

You know that summer never stopped.
I still pretend I'm there.

Bands in the living room,
the neighbors they never cared.

   F#m                       E
So when I sat behind the drum set.
   F#m                       E
Your heartbeat's what I tried to play.
         F#m   F    E   C#   D
With the kick and snares so careless not in time.
So you got ahead of me.
And I guess I'm still dragging behind. (back to verse)

I had a friend who changed his name
but couldn't change himself.
Never quite figured out
how to do with what life had dealt.
He put a needle in his arm
to calm his handsome hell.
who would have imagined it?
Could've worked out so well.
Now he's a shape that moves
like echoes through my empty room.
And there's a voice that speaks
like someone's right behind me.
I turned around and found
exactly what you would expect.
Clothes I left on my floor.
The papers piled on my desk.
But where the ink is
where the cause effect what's meant by it
the story is incomplete.
The pictures' left unfinished.
So I am writing my own ending.
I'll let my pen bleed black or blue.
And I will color in the meaning.
It will be gold and green and true.
And I'll learn to love my new discovered proof.
I'll be grateful for this day.
I will be grateful for each day to come.

I'm pretty sure the progression for the verse is |A |G#m |F#m |E |. Very similar to what you had. And I think the first two lines of the chorus follow that progression as well... Not sure about the rest of the chorus though.
