Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is the version they played on Balcony TV back in 08 so it may be a tad 
different than the recorded version. It's pretty easy to pick up the strumming 
pattern when you listen to the song.

Standard Tuning. No Capo.

INTRO:

Slowly:

e|-1-------1-------1------|
B|-0-------0-------0------|
G|-0-------0-------0------| 
D|-0-------0-------0------|
A|-2-3-2-0-2-3-2-0-2-3-2-0|
E|-3-------3-------3------|

Then faster:

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------3-3-3-2-2-2-0-0-0-------3-3-3-2-2-2-0-0-0------3-3-3-2-2-2-0-0-0------3-3-3-2-2-2-0-0-0-|
E|-3-3-3-------------------3-3-3------------------3-3-3------------------3-3-3-------------------|

Slowly again: G C G Am 4x


G   C     G            Am      G
She stole my heart and made me sing

    C       G          Am
She tore me limb from limb

G C       G          Am      G
I did not think that I could love

   C        G        
Or be loved that way 

(fast strumming)
Am     G      C     G      Am    G      C     G
aga-aa-ain-aa-aa-aa-ain aaaga-aa-ain-aa-aa-aa-ain


(repeat the same pattern for second verse)


How glad I was to be myself

And use my heart once more

How glad I was to be a man

And love that girl that I

ado-oo-ore-oo-ore-oo-ore ado-oo-ore-oo-ore-oo-ore


(slow strumming)

    Am            G       C     G
Well my eyes will see the light again

       Am         G     C     G
And my heart will bleed right again 

(fast again)
        Am        G       C     G
Well my eyes will see the light again

       Am         G     C     G
And my heart will bleed right again


G C G Am x3

Am            G       C       G
Aa-aagh-aa-aa-aagh Aa-aagh-aa-aagh

Aa-aagh-aa-aa-aagh Aa-aagh-aa-aagh

Aa-aagh-aa-aa-aagh Aa-aagh-aa-aagh

Aa-aagh-aa-aa-aagh Aa-aagh-aa-aagh

Aa-aagh-aa-aa-aagh Aa-aagh-aa-aagh

Aa-aagh-aa-aa-aagh Aa-aagh-aa-aagh


G G G

The End

Good tab: It's hard to transcribe from one instrument to another and you did a terrific job.

On the banjo, the verses are all variations of G and you play the melody by fretting an open G then a C-B-A on the G string. I'm thinking you can do the same on the guitar on the g-string.

Also, goointheory is right. It's definitely D instead of Am, but Am sounds fine.
