Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I usually both arpegiate and strum these chords to help set a somber mood.
I tried to keep the transcription fairly simple because it was originally
played on piano, I did it for guitar so things will be a little different.
This song was written after Sarah received some rather disturbing letters
from some obsessed fans. Enjoy.

Sarah Mclachlan - Do What You Have to Do
[Chords]
Em - 022000      Asus2 - 002200
G  - 320022      Bm    - x24432
D  - x00232      A     - x02220
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[Verse1]
  [Em]                  [G]                      [D]     [Asus2]
What Ravages of spirit conjured this temptuous rage.
[Em]                    [G]                   [Bm]
Created you a monster, broken by the rule of love.
  [Em]                             [G]                   [D]  [Asus2]
And fate has led you through it, you do what you have to do.
  [Em]                             [G]                  [A]
And fate has led you through it, you do what you have to do.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[Chorus]
 [Bm]               [G]
I have the sense to recognize, 
    [D]          [Asus2]        [Em]     [D][G]
That I don't know how to let you go  (quick^change)
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[Verse2]
[Em]              [G]                      [D]     [Asus2]
Every moment marked with apparitions of your soul
  [Em]                  [G]                   [Bm]
I'm ever swiftly moving, trying to escape this desire.
 [Em]                        [G]                 [D]   [Asus2]
The yearning to be near you, I do what I have to do.
  [Em]                       [G]                [A]
The yearning to be near you, I do what I have to do.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[Chorus]
    [Bm]               [G]
And I have the sense to recognize, 
    [D]          [Asus2]        [Em]     [D][G]
That I don't know how to let you go  (quick^change)
[D]        [Asus2]        [Em]   [D] [Em]  [Verse-2-Chords] 
I don't know how to let you go
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[Verse-Chords-For-Solo-if-Desired]
--------------------------------------------------------------------- 
[Verse3]
[Em]              [G]        [D]
 A glowing ember, burning hot, and burning slow.
[Em]                         [G]                     [Bm]
Deep within I'm shaken by the violence of existing for only you.
 [Em]                        [G]                 [D]   [Asus2]
I know I can't be with you, I do what I have to do.
 [Em]                        [G]              [A] 
I know I can't be with you, I do what I have to do.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[Chorus]
    [Bm]               [G]
And I have the sense to recognize, 
    [D]         [Asus2]        [Em]     [D][G]
That I don't know how to let you go  (quick^change)
[D]        [Asus2]        [Em]   [D] [Em] 
I don't know how to let you go
[D]        [Asus2]        [Em] (slow-strum) 
I don't know how to let you go
