Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is transcribed as I hear it from the live version. Part of it is
 questionable, but it sounds okay in my head.

     E     A5    C     A
e:---0-----x-----0-----0-----------|
B:---0-----x-----1-----2-----------|
G:---1-----x-----0-----2-----------|
D:---2-----x-----2-----2-----------|
A:---2-----0-----3-----0-----------|
E:---0-----0-----0-----0-----------|

Intro: E | A5 | E

The A5 should be played only three times before reverting to E.

1ST VERSE
E                            A5
I wore the clothes you wanted
E               A5
I took your name
E                        A5 E
If there is some confusion, who's to blame?
E                        A5
I signed your living will
E                 A5
I smiled your face
E                        A5   E                   A5
I'm ready to close the book on NASA in outer space


CHORUS
C           A             A5
If there is some confusion
E              C   A    A5
Who's to blame?
E               A5
Who's to blame?

2ND VERSE
I sequenced your arrival
I sealed your fate
I pushed the button and erased your master tape
I wrote the sales pitch
I threw the brake switch
I dragged your big ass daddy roth car out of that ditch

CHORUS

BRIDGE
A   A5   E x2
C   A   A5   E x2
A5   E

3RD VERSE
I crossed your great divide
I stirred your ocean's tide
I called your bluff until I blew your circuits wide
I'll be your albatross
Your devil, dog, Jesus, God
I don't wanna be Iggy Pop but if that's what it takes, hey

ENDING CHORUS
C           A              C
If there is some confusion
            A              C
If there is some confusion
            A              A5   E
If there is some confusion
                C   A   A5   E
Who's to blame?
                C   A   A5   E
Who's to blame?
                C   A   A5   E
Who's to blame?

End with: C A A5 E (x2)
