Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
One of my favourite songs, but i earched online for these and couldn't find them 
anywhere!! So I decided to upload it myself :) As far as I can tell, it sounds 
right when played with this music video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVbsh6LHF2U 

The chords are simple, its half a step down if you want to play along to the 
video, but you can change it if you want to sing in a different key etc.
If you think it could be improved then email me at EdwardNyari@live.co.uk

[Verse]

C
sink or swim,
                          F
hold your breath and just dive right in.
C
ride the wave,

(just) ride the wave far from where we came.


[Pre-Chorus]

Am
don't be scared,

who cares if we lose again?

holding onto you for dear life, i will
(you know i'll be)
holding onto you for dear life,
holding onto you for dear life, i will

holding onto me for dear life
holding onto me for dear life, i know
(and i know you'll be)
holding onto me for dear life
holding onto me for dear life, i know


[Verse]

sink or swim, 
hold your breath and just dive right in.

Hey, excellent tab! I too have been searching for a tab for this so thanks for popping it up! However, I think the F chord is actually the Fmaj chord which looks like this but I guess It's down to preference really! :

E |-1-|
B |-1-|
D |-2-|
G |-3-|
A |-x-|
E |-x-|

Yep, F is Fmaj7 (you can see this from watching the vid) and think chorus is actually: C/G, G (or play C/G and remove finger from B string) and then Fmaj7. Sounds better to me. Otherwise nice work :) - Check out my tab for Bones.
