Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I have transcribed this song for ukulele, because I think it is one of the
greatest songs of all time and I wanted it to be accessible to average players.


        G        C                G                Bb                     
I was driving across the burning desert,  when I spotted six jet planes
         Am               Bm                G       C
Leaving six white vapor trails across the bleak terrain
                            Em7                   Bm             Am [Am/C] 
It was the hexagram of the heavens,  it was the strings of my guitar 
  F                   Bb      F  G  C  F  G  Bb
Amelia it was just a false alarm

      G        C     G              Bb                                  Am  
The drone of flying engines,  is a song so wild and blue, it scrambles time
     Bm                  G       C                             Em7        
And seasons if it gets thru to you,  then your life becomes a travelogue
    Bm                 Am [Am/C]   F                   Bb      F  G  C  F  G  Bb
Of picture post card charms,     Amelia it was just a false alarm

  G          C         G                 Bb                              
People will tell you where they've gone,  they'll tell you where to go
                   Am         Bm             G       C
But till you get there,  yourself you never really know
                             Em7       Bm                   Am [Am/C]
Where some have found their paradise,  others just come to harm
      F                   Bb      F  G  C  F  G  Bb
Oh, Amelia it was just a false alarm

G            C      G            Bb                      
I wish that he was here tonight,  it's so hard to obey
           Am      Bm             G    C
His sad request of me to kindly stay away
                 Em7                     Bm                     Am [Am/C]
So this is how I hide the hurt,  as the road leads cursed and charmed 
         F                   Bb      F  G  C  F  G  Bb
I tell Amelia it was just a false alarm

    G      C  G                 Bb                              Am  
A ghost of aviation,  she was swallowed by the sky,  or by the sea
     Bm             G       C                Em7           Bm              Am [Am/C]
Like me she had a dream to fly, like Icarus ascending on beautiful foolish arms
  F                   Bb      F  G  C  F  G  Bb
Amelia it was just a false alarm

  G         C     G           Bb                                         Am        
Maybe I've never really loved,  I guess that is the truth, I've spent my whole life  
     Bm          G    C                         Em7          
In clouds at icy altitude,  and looking down on everything,  
    Bm              Am  [Am/C]  F                   Bb      F  G  C  F  G  Bb
I crashed into his arms,      Amelia it was just a false alarm

   G               C       G         Bb                        
I pulled into the Cactus Tree Motel,  to shower off the dust
       Am                   Bm            G     C
And I slept on the strange pillows of my wanderlust
                         Em7            Bm        Am [Am/C]
I dreamed of seven forty sevens,  over geometric farms
         F        Bb               F  G  C  F  G  Bb
