There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is a great cover of Laika, originally by Wil Wagner of The Smith Street Band on his solo album Laika.

Georgia Maq is an incredible artist, check out her 7" "With a Q".

This is my first tab, but as far as i can tell this seems accurate, here's the video to compare:

Strumming pattern is easy to pick up from the video.  Georgia uses some variations on the D chord every now and
then using her pinkie, but it's not necessarily required to sound good.




 Cadd9   G    Em/D   D

G                    D                    Em/D
   From here in my cage I see them make plans,
                       Cadd9                       G
Hear them reassure investors, shake presidents' hands.
G                    D                  Em/D
   The men with machines put tubes into me,
                       Cadd9                       G
They measure my vital signs, my flight trajectory.
G                    D                     Em/D
   They taught me to sit, taught me to lie down.
                       Cadd9                           G
Told me that a thousand years of wondering would end now.
G                       D                        Em/D
   They fed me my last meal, was the same as my first.
                 Cadd9                 G
From here in my cage, I watch the men work.

  G D Em/D Cadd9 

G                    D                    Em/D
   And now it's a flurry of lab coats and hurry.
                 Cadd9                    G
They talk about budgets and taxpayers' money.
G                 D                    Em/D
   And I wag my tail and I be a good girl,
                              Cadd9                                   G
They forgot to walk me this morning they were too busy changing the world.
G                        D                        Em/D
   And I'm out from my cage and I'm trying to be brave,
                       Cadd9                       G
But the men they are sweating and now they're injecting,

G              D      
   And as I awake
I'm shocked and amazed.
At the sheer, crushing empty.

Cadd9          D                    Em/D    D            Cadd9                        
   And I look down on men's little earth, sitting there quietly, wondering what it's worth.
              D               Em/D           D          Cadd9                          G
And I drift away, but that's okay, there's more room to play out here than back in my cage.

G                  D               Em/D
And I know I will die, but that is fine,
                     Cadd9              G
Cause I know in some way I am helping mankind.
                 D                                Em/D
And I don't understand, cause I'm not as smart as them,
              Cadd9                               G
But even a parachute would have shown that they cared.

G                   D              Em/D
   And so I float on, space's only dog.
              Cadd9              G
Friend to the stars, pet of the sun.
G                D                 Em/D
From my little ship I dream of my bone,
A walk in the park, something comfy to sleep on.

                   D                         Em/D
And they named me Laika but I'd just like to say  
     D                  Cadd9                                                     
That I was born Little Curly and I'll die with that name.
                     D                        Em/D
Yeah they named me Laika but I'd just like to say
       D           Cadd9                                         
 I was born Little Curly and I'll die with that name.
