There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
If you see that something is wrong, feel free to correct me. I'd love to see some 
alternate versions of this song. 
Listen to the song for the strumming. I tabbed this from the Andrew Jackson Jihad 
version, so there might be some 
minor differences compared to the Ghost Mice version. Love both bands, and the song.

D                             A                      G
The best years of his life is what he gave to you
D                          A            G
Never late a day he's been faithful and true
D                               A               G
putting out the tombstones and digging down the graves
D                               A                     G            Em
for over thirty years now and I can't believe you have the nerve to say
                G                     D
That now you're gonna have to cut his pay
                  A               G       D
'cause one of your priests did such an awful thing

D                                    A                    G
Lightning bolt oh lightning bolt why don't you strike them down
D                                      A                 G
for what they did they deserve to be a black spot on the ground
D                            A              G
And if there is a god living up there in the clouds
D                                A       G         Em
I can't imagine a better time to show his wrath than now
                       G                        D
Somehow these monsters all seem higher than the law
          A        G            D
They won't see any punishment at all

D                                 A           G
He didn't give a damn about your god or your church
D                                 A              G
He was just an honest man looking for some honest work
D                             A                   G
And in his little finger he's got more purity
D                                A         G        Em
than a whole church load full of your child molesting priests
                     G                              D
It seems that you're making him pay for the guilty sins
       A                    G         D
Thirty years and that's the thanks he gets

D                                      A           G
Well it's hard to imagine there could be a greater sin
D                         A         G
than using your trust for abusing a kid
D                              A               G
As hard as it may seem, well I think that there is
    D                       A               G        Em
and you're committing it by protecting these old evil men
              G                    D
And if there really is a judgement day
       A            G           D
you're gonna have a whole lot to explain
