Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
A             B
So hesitation pulled me back
                    A
I'm stronger when I don't attract
                   B
In your eyes I'm a lamb without a rack
                    A
And I am getting confused
      B                       A
I'm a cactus trying to be a canoe

As you pan for ore
               B
In the desert, floored

I say to you

                             F#                 G#m
That I could never imagine a place so beautiful
                        F#     B
I could never steal your gold away.

        E                C#m
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
E                                   C#                                   
(I try to walk like a big wham bam

I came across like a battering ram
E                                   C#
I try to float like a telegram sam

I'm trying to divine you

F#   E    B
                                 F#
My book is called "The Ascent Of Man"
                                   G#m
I marked your chapter with a catamaran

The accent's off
      F#        B
But I am what I am

       E                 C#
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
E                                   C#m
(I try to walk like a big wham bam

I came across like a battering ram
E                                   C#
I try to float like a telegram sam

I'm trying to divine you.)

F#

B  A  D  G  F#  E

B                                   F#
I looked for you, it's my last grandstand
                             G#m
A motorscootered goat legged pan
                   F#   B
Figure eighting in quicksand
 
     E                   C#m
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
E                                  C#m
(I try to walk like a big wham bam

I try to float like a telegram sam
E                                   C#m
I came across like a battering ram

I'm trying to divine you.)
E                                   C#m
(I try to walk like a big wham bam

I try to float like a telegram sam
E                                   C#m
I came across like a battering ram

I'm trying to divine you.)

A                       B
So hesitation pulled me back
                 A
I'm so in love I don't attract
            B                        A
And with my hands tied I won't crack
B
('Cause in my mind I called you back.)

A  B

in the verses, instead of A and B, do the two fingered version of it... lets call them A* and B*.

Also, in the bridge, instead of B F# G#m F# B, i did B F# G#m A* B*, which sounds better to me. thanks for posting this.

also , in the chorus, between E and C#m, play a B. sounds good!
