Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is not the Led Zeppelin song. It is a beautiful Irish ballad recorded by Johnny McEvoy. Any mistakes 
are mine. Enjoy

        G                        C                 Am
He was never there when needed & oh how much she pleaded
        G                                   D
Saying darling won't you stay home just one time
        G           C        G         C                 Am
He'd just smile and say I'm sorry but there's no need to worry
           G          C    G                         D7        G
Just gonna meet some army Buddies drink some beer & fight the war.

       G                             C             Am
In the Kitchen making wishes as she tidies up the dishes
       G                                          D7
On another lonely weekend And the wine she drank alone
         G          C         G         C                 Am
And the nights they hold no pity in the cold of New York City
       G           C       G                            D7      G
As she waits there in the darkness to hear his key turn in the door

         G                               C               Am
Then one night he came home sober with a longing just to hold her
         G                    D                       G
When he found the note she'd written waiting by the telephone
         C                  Am         G             C
And she said "I'll always love you and never will forget you
      G           C                D7          G
But I just can't take this lonely feeling anymore"

              D          D7                    C                G
She said I'm going to California to taste the sunshine and the wine
     C                  G                         D7
Sit beside the rolling ocean and slowly pass the time
        G          C         G          C               Am
Reading books and old love stories and forget about my worries
    G      C         G          D     D7    G
And maybe who knows maybe we'll meet again someday.

        G                                 C                Am
Now the nights are cold and lonely as he sits and watches TV 
         G                                                    D7
Drinking beer and chasing whiskey wondering where it all went wrong
         G           C       G               C                Am
And his eyes are tired and burning from the dreams that keep returning
    G         C      G        D7             G
And all his yesterdays they won't leave him alone.


              D          D7                    C                G
She said I'm going to California to taste the sunshine and the wine
     C                  G                         D7
Sit beside the rolling ocean and slowly pass the time
        G          C         G          C               Am
Reading books and old love stories and forget about my worries
    G      C         G          D     D7    G
And maybe who knows maybe we'll meet again someday.
