Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
the first tab had it mostly right

i play the Bb a G, and a little different chorus, you guys decide

also play the verse down around the octaves, and chorus at traditional places


         F          
Well the songs you sung spiraled
    Am
And hung 'round like echoes 
  G                 C
Or ripples on a pond

       F
So you circled the globe
        Am
Spent a year on the road
      G           C
Without ever going home

            F
More than a couple of days, 
           Am
Then you’d leave right away
        G               C
Run to a girl you barely know

        F
But you like how she sings
        Am
And you can’t help but think
            G                  C 
That there’s something that she knows and could teach you

G                              C
  While you’re sleeping in that southern state
G                               C
  Where the bars are filled with people you can’t hate
    G
But try as you try
    C
You still can’t relate to them 
        G                     C
And you drink that whiskey down
              
As they ask you, 

 D                Bb       F           
“Are you who you say you are?”
 D               Bb               F
Are you who you say that you are?
 D               Bb                C
Are you who you say that you are, you…
 C               F              
Are you who you say that you are?
 D               Bb      F    E Bb
Are you who you say you are?
              C
The fact that you can’t tell makes us like you even more

F Am G C
              F 
So now you’re trying again
        Am
Or just visiting friends
      G                   C
One had just had his heart broke

              F 
For the first time in his life
       Am
He realized there are times
        G              C
When you can’t make it alone

               F  
But now you’re giving advice
      Am  
As if you had the right
   G               C  
To use a word like “love”

         F
It’s a negotiable term
          Am
What gets said’s not what’s heard
        G                 C     
So it’s different then for everyone

                G                  C
But you're still hanging ‘round that college town
        G                          C
With your…your new life your new lover you’ve found 
           G                      C
And you’re keeping her up at night, bringing her down
                 G                  C
She’ll watch you drink yourself to death
    
But won’t ask you, 

  D       Bb               F
“is this really what you want?”
 D       Bb              F
Is this really what you want?
 D          Bb                   C
Is this really what you is this what...
  C           F           
Is this really what you want?
D        Bb               F    E Bb
Is this really what you want?
             C                                                F, Am
Are you just sticking with it now because it’s all you’ve got?
             G                           C                   F, Am
Are you just sticking with it now because it’s all you’ve got?
                               G
Yeah that’s it, I think you’re sticking with me now 
        C
Because I’m all you’ve got

F, Am, G, C

Good tab sounds pretty accurate the only thing I think is just slightly off is the D in the "Is this really what you want" should be a D minor.
E|-1-
B|-3-
G|-2-
D|-0-
A|---
E|---
Other than that everything sounds great thanks. : )
