Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is my first tab but it's also a great song off of their new album Astoria! Hope you enjoy!

Some notes: 

I rewrote the lyrics towards the end of the song a bit to make it easier for a soloist 
who wanted to sing and play the song.

It'll help a lot if you listen to the song to learn the strumming patters, chord stresses, 
and pauses in the song!


[Intro]

D  E  F#m
D  E  F#m


[Verse 1]

D                    E                      F#m  
  Its the third of October, you should come over
F#m                             D
Best laid plans are not sober
                  E                          F#m
And maybe not the way we thought we planned
F#m
Both of us will take this hand
D                E                   F#m
For a couple of days then we'll disappear
F#m                                          D
We don't have to talk of where we go from here
    E            F#m       
Oh, my dearly departed,
  D  E            F#m
Mmm, my dearly departed


[Refrain]

    D
One final shoulder
D                       F#m
Here before they're none
E                    D
And then there were none


[Chorus]

     F#m              A         D
This last call could be all we can do for each other
F#m          A          D
Embrace for a dear old friend
D
Bring wine to bed
     F#m E A       D             F#m
We'll  toast what could have been
E            D
My dearly departed
  F#m E            D
To,   my dearly departed


[Verse 2]

D                   E
I don't know how to mend it
                  F#m
But this chapter ended
F#m                                    D
When all of my plans have depended on you
               E                        F#m
But at least tonight we'll still pretend
F#m                                        D
Hold each other close like its not the end
                       E                              F#m
And you can send me balloons, and we can laugh at the doom
F#m                                               D
We both thought of that doesn't it say something to
   E           F#m
Oh my dearly departed,
  D  E            F#m
Ohh, my dearly departed


[Refrain]

D
One final shoulder
D                   F#m
Here before we're none
  E                 D 
Until (there) are none


[Chorus]

     F#m              A         D
This last call could be all we can do for each other
F#m          A          D
Embrace for a dear old friend
D
Bring wine to bed
     F#m E A       D             F#m
We'll  toast what could have been
E            D
My dearly departed
  F#m E           D
To   my dearly departed


[Bridge]

      F#m              A
Every masterpiece I'd write again
       E
You'll always be my porcelain
  F#m                     A
I crossed my heart but I stuttered too
   E
So truth or dare was I good to you?
        F#m                A
Haven't had enough of you all to myself
      E
Still right beside you in sickness and health
   F#m         E              D
Forever after you will be my home
                       F#m  E   D
And there's no place like home


[Outro]

D                 E                               F#m
We never sent the cards, they're all still on the table
                                      D
Wanna throw them out but I'm just not able
E            F#m      D
My dearly departed
E               F#m      A      D
   My dearly departed
D           F#m         A          D
Toast what could what could have been
D           F#m         A          D
Toast what could what could have been
D                F#m
Dear old friend, 
     A          D
What could have been
D           F#m
Old friend
A            D
My dearly departed
D           F#m
Toast what could,
A            D
My dearly departed
D           F#m
Toast what could,
A            D
My dearly departed
D           F#m         A          D
Toast what could what could have been
D
Dear old friend

I found that if you use the chords D 222x, F#m 665x , E 444x, A 999x and rest your finger on the last string to mute it, it sounds more like how it is performed.

These chords translate excellently to (acoustic) guitar
you can make it easier to play by using a capo on the second fret, very easy to sing along to

Shape = chord
C = D
D = E
Em = F#m
G = A
