Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Hi there!  Here's Ed's latest release- "The Man".
here's the link-
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2e3bAdPGAo

Go buy it on itunes :) http://smarturl.it/x-itunesdlx

**UPDATE**
I changed the way I had this all labeled because a user just didn't understand it.
Even though many users before (and after) had no problem understanding the open chord 
strumming, I agree it was a bit confusing.  So those open strums are now chords
that are nearly open strums! Still plays right along, just like before :)


*I put the '( )' in just to note that the strumming emphasis is on the
open strings, not those in '( )'.

[Verse 1]

Em7*                Am 
Now I don't want to hate you
                                      G6*
Just wish you'd never gone for the man
    F
And waited two weeks at least
           Em7* 
Before you let him take you
  Am
I stayed true
                                  G6*
I kind of knew you liked the dude from private school
     F
He's waiting for the time to move
              Em7* 
I knew he had his eyes on you
     Am
He's not the right guy for you
                  G6*
Don't hate me cos I write the truth
   F
No I would never lie to you
                 Em7* 
But it was never fine to lose you
    Am
And what a way to find out
   G6*                F
It never came from my mouth
You never changed your mind
                   Em7*             Am
But you were just afraid to find out
                                          G6*        
But f- it, I won't be changing the subject I love it
F                                      Em7* 
I'll make your little secret public its nothing
         Am
I'm just disgusted with the skeletons you sleep with 
G6*                   F
In your closet to get back at me
Trapped and I'm lacking sleep
Em7*           Am                            G6*
Fact is you're mad at me because I backtrack so casually
F                           
You're practically my family
                        Em7*                Am
If we married then I'll guess you'd have to be
                                           G6*
But tragically our love just lost the will to live
F
But would I kill to give it one more shot
           Em7*
I think not


[Hook]

        Am
I don't love you baby
G6*     F 
I don't need you baby
Em7*    Am
I don't want you no
G6* F
Any-more

Em7*     Am
I don't love you baby
G6*     F 
I don't need you baby
Em7*    Am
I don't want you no
G6* F
Any-more


[Verse 2]

                   Am
Recently I tend to zone out

Up in my headphones to Holocene
G6*               F
You promised your body but I'm away so much
            Em7*               Am
I stay more celibate than in a monastery
                               G6*
Im not cut out for life on the road
             F
Cos I didn't know I'd miss you this much
           Em7*                  Am
And at the time we'd just go, so sue me
                             G6*
I guess I'm not the man that you need
     F
Ever since you went to uni
                       Em7*       Am
I've been sofa surfing with a rucksack
                                             G6*
Full of less cash and I guess that could get bad
           F                                                Em7*
But when I broke the industry that's when I broke your heart

               Am
I was supposed to chart and celebrate
                    G6*
But good things are over fast
       F                                 
I know it was hard to deal with and see this
       Em7*                Am*
I tend to turn you off and switch on my professional features
     G6*              F*
Then I turn the music off
                                       Em7*           Am
And all I'm left with is to pick up my personal pieces, Jesus
                       G6*
I never really want to believe this
    F
Got advice from my dad and he
                    Em7*             Am
Told me that family is all I'll ever have and need
                       G6*
I guess I'm unaware of it
   F                                          Em7*
Success is nothing if you have no one left to share it with


[Hook]

        Am
I don't love you baby
G6*     F 
I don't need you baby
Em7*    Am
I don't want you no
G6* F
Any-more

Em7*     Am
I don't love you baby
G6*     F 
I don't need you baby
Em7*    Am
I don't want you no
G6* F
Any-more

 
[Verse 3]

    Em7*                      Am
And since you left I've given up my days off
                         G6*
It's what I need to stay strong
           F                              Em7*
I know you have a day job But mine is 24/7
            Am                                       G6*
I fell like writing a book I guess I lied in the hook
            F                                           Em7*
Cos I still love you and I need you by my side if I could
          Am                                    G6*
The irony is if my career and music didn't exist
       F                                              Em7*
In six years yeah you'd probably be my wife with a kid
                  Am                             G6*
I'm frightened to think if I depend on cider and drink
               F                                   Em7*
And lighting a spliff I fall into a spiral and it's
               Am                                     G6*
Just hiding my misguiding thoughts that I'm trying to kill
           F
And I'd be writing my will before I'm 27
     Em7*       Am                                         G6*
I'll die from a thrill Go down in history as just a wasted talent
      F                                          Em7*      Am
Can I face the challenge Or did I make a mistake erasing
                                        G6*
It's only therapy My thoughts just get ahead of me
F                                                Em7*        Am
Eventually I'll be fine I know that it was never meant to be
                                   G6*
Either way I guess I'm not prepared
             F
But I'll say this:
                                         Em7*         Am*
These things happen for a reason and you can't change
                              G6*
Take my apology I'm sorry for the honesty
             F*
But I had to get this off my chest


[Hook]

        Am
I don't love you baby
G6*     F 
I don't need you baby
Em7*    Am
I don't want you no
G6* F
Any-more

Em7*     Am
I don't love you baby
G6*     F 
I don't need you baby
Em7*    Am
I don't want you no
G6* F
Any-more


Em7* Am G6* F.... repeats and fades out
