Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I'm pretty sure what I figured out is mostly correct, feel free to let me know of any changes you think I 
should make. 
The intro uses three different fingerings of E, and I think I got pretty close.
During the bridge section the E/D means E with D (or C# when tuned half step down), fingered as:

e|--0----|
B|--0----|
G|--1----|
D|--0----|
A|--2----|
E|--0----|


[Intro]    

E            E                 E
                   e|--4----|        e|--0----|           
                   B|--5----|        B|--0----|
                   G|--4----|        G|--9----|
                   D|--6----|        D|--9----|
                   A|--7----|        A|--7----|
                   E|--0----|        E|--0----|


[Verse 1] 
(muted)

E                                                               C#m
I heard your voice reverberating off of the back wall of the cathedral. 
    B                                  A                    E
It echoed off the wedding bells and disappeared down Route 18. 
(E)                                                                            C#m
At first I tried to guide it back towards the strings of my heart where your hands pulled, 
            B                            A                   E
but it was faster and more devious than I could ever hope to be. 

(regular strumming)

(E)                                                                     C#m
So I racked my brain for days and days hoping I’d find some magic combination;
      B                            A                         E 
some special set of syllables to send your heart back to my door. 
(E)                                                                       C#m
But progress can’t be made if you’re the one who keeps on doing all the changing, 
      B                           A                       E
and every sentence that I say to you seems to fall just short.


[Chorus]

A                 E                       A                 F#m
If I could change you, I don’t think that I’d have the guts to.
A                     E                               D     A 
My roots have shown through and there’s no room for you here 
                        E
to get stuck in the ground.


[Instrumental]

E C#m B A 


[Verse 2]

     E                                                             C#m
The distances we drew between did not present a clear and present danger;
       B                                 A                   E
and when we finally noticed them they were too heavy to move on.
(E strum once and mute)                                         C#m 
And somewhere between Madison and Bellingham I thought I had an answer, 
            B                              A                      E
but by the time I got to Denver I could plainly see that it was gone. 


[Chorus]

A                 E                       A                 F#m
If I could change you, I don’t think that I’d have the guts to.
A                     E                               D     A 
My roots have shown through and there’s no room for you here 
                        E
to get stuck in the ground.


[Instrumental]

E  E/D  A  Am (x2)


[Bridge]

         E           E/D             A                   Am
I found you in the night with the porch lights shining bright. 
         E           E/D             A              Am
In the dead of the fall, that was where I lost it all.
          E           E/D            A     Am 
Could you be more to me than a future memory 
      E              E/D           A           Am               G#m        
of a girl, weighed down by the circumstances found and floundering 
            A                  Am
under the weight of all we’ve yet to be?


[Instrumental]

E C#m B A (x2)

               G#m
Under all the weight
           A                   Am
under the weight of all we've yet to be


[Outro]

E            E                 E
                   e|--4----|        e|--0----|           
                   B|--5----|        B|--0----|
                   G|--4----|        G|--9----|
                   D|--6----|        D|--9----|
                   A|--7----|        A|--7----|
                   E|--0----|        E|--0----|
