There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is my first so if its messy I apologize.

Here's the gist:
C C C F7
C C g Am x2 for the verse x2 in between verses and chorus
F7 C F7 Am
C G F7 Am x 2 for the chorus
Em Am C F7 C F7 x2 for the other part
Listen to the song for the hammer ons

Capo on the 2nd fret or where ever you feel comfortable singing

Verse 1:
   C           C         C                F7
Remember when our songs were just like prayer.
   C          C             G          Am
Like gospel hymns that you call in the air.
   C          C             C     F7
Come down, come down, sweet reverent
   C      C      G          Am
Until my simple heart sound ring.
     C   C   C  F7   C  C   G  Am
And ring.

F7           C     F7         Am 
Ring like silver, ring like gold.
C               G            F7 Am 
Ring out those ghosts on the Ohio.
F7           C     F7         Am  
Ring like clear day wedding bells,
        C             G          F7         Am
In the belly of the beast or the sword that fell.
            C   C   C  F7   C  C   G  Am
I'll never tell.

       Em                   Am
They come to me, clear and cold.
      C   C   C  F7   C  C   G  Am
Some say
       Em                   Am
The Wives of Earl, spinning weaves
          C   C   C  F7   C  C   G  Am
At that machine.

Verse 2:
I've gone crazy, couldn't you tell.
I threw stones at the stars but the whole sky fell.
Now I'm covered up in straw belly, up on a table.
And I drank and sang and passed in the stable. 

C C C F7
C C G Am 
Em Am C F7 C F7 x2

Verse 3:
That tall grass grows high and brown.
Well I drank you straight in the muddy ground.
And you sent me back to where I roam.
Well I cursed and I cried but now I know. 
Oh, now I know...

Verse 4:
And I ran back to that hollow again,
The moon was just a sliver back then,
And I ached for my heart like some tin man.
When it came, oh, it beat, and it boiled, and it rang.
Oh it's ringing.

Ring like crazy, ring like hell.
Turn me back into that wild-haired gale.
Ring like silver, ring like gold.
Turn these diamonds straight back into gold.
Turn these diamonds straight back into gold. 

It's as right as I could get it without the other instruments or Gregory sitting there with me.
