There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Notice that the album version they use a capo in the first fret. 
When it's played live, they don't use it.

Louis was my dearest friend
C                     C      C     C   Dm C
Fighting in the anzac trench.
Am                C
Louis ran forward from the line,
C                   C     C    C  C C
And i never saw him again.
C            C   C    C C C
Later in the dark
C                        C     C    C Dm C
I thought i heard louis' voice
Am               C
Calling for his mother, then me,
C                     C  C
But i couldn't get to him.
C  C  C (x3)

Am                    C   Am    Am  C Am
He's still up on that hill.
C                  Dm C   C Dm C
  20 years on that hill.
Am                   C       Dm     Am   C  Am
 Nothing more than a pile of bones,
C                   Dm  C   C Dm
 But i think of him still.
C                  C   C   C C C
If i was asked i'd tell
C                            C   C    C  Dm  C
The colour of the earth that day;
Am               C
It was dull, and browny-red,
C                         C   C   C C C
"the colour of blood" i'd say
Am C Am  (x2)
C Dm C (x2)
Am C Am (x2)
C Dm C 
C Dm C    C
