There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I used Hackenbush's tab, which is great by the way, I just made it into basic chords.

Song is in 3/4 -- Capo on 4th fret

G  Bm  C  Bm     
Sadie, white coat
G       Bm      C       Bm
you carry me home
       G  Bm  C  Bm
And bury this bone 
        G       Bm      C       Bm
and take this pine cone

Bm D      Am C  
Bury this bone to 
G             Gmaj7
Gnaw on it later
Gnawing on the telephone
Bm      D               Am              C
Until then, we pray and suspend
       G                Gmaj7      Em
The notion that these lives do never end

And all day long we talk about mercy
G                                    C          D       G
Lead me to water, Lord, I sure am thirsty
Down in the ditch where I nearly served you
G                                    C          D       G
Up in the clouds where he almost heard you

And all that we built and all that we breathed
And all that we spilt, or pulled up like weeds
G                                  C            D         G
Is piled up in back and it burns irrevocably
Em                                            C         D               G
And we spoke up in turns 'til the silence crept over me

G               Bm              C       Bm       
And bless you, and I deeply do
                G    Bm  C  Bm   
No longer resolute, oh and I call to you
G          Bm   C  Bm    
But the water go so cold
          G       Bm    C            Bm
And you do lose what you don't hold

              Bm        D       Am              C
This is an old song, these are old blues
        G               Gmj7            Em
And this is not my tune, but it's mine to use
           Bm         D         Am                      C
And the seabirds where the fear once grew
G                       Gmaj7           Em
Will flock with a fury and they will bury what'd come for you

And down where I darn with the milk-eyed mender
G                       C       D       G
You and I, and a love so tender
Stretched on a hoop where I stitched this adage:
G                               C       D               G
"Bless our house and its heart so savage"

And all that I want, and all that I need
And all that I've got is scattered like seed
G                               C               D        G
And all that I knew is moving away from me
Em                              C               D               G
And all that I know is blowing like tumbleweed

        G               Bm              C               Bm
And the mealy worms in the brine will burn
        G       Bm              C                  Bm
In a salty pyre among the fauns and ferns
             G          Bm                  C           Bm
And the love we hold, and the love we spurn
                G       Bm      C       Bm
Will never grow cold, only taciturn
        G       Bm      C       Bm
And I'll tell you tomorrow
G       Bm      C               Bm
Sadie, go on home now
        G       Bm              C               Bm
And bless those who've sickened below
        G       Bm              C               Bm
And bless us who have chosen so

And all that I've got and all that I need
I tie in a knot and I lay at your feet
G                                       C         D                G
And I have not forgot, but a silence crept over me
Em                              C                       D               G
So dig up your bone, exhume your pine cone, my Sadie
