There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I love this song, and it's not very difficult to play.  It is, however, difficult to 
 Each of the three verses, and two of the three choruses  have a different chord 
so... have fun with that.

The "F-G-Dm" progression may also be D "F-walkdown-to-Dm"


Spoon: The Underdog


Intro:

F...                            F-G

F     Em     G     F   F-G (x2)

Dm                         Dm

   Picture yourself in the living room

                           F

your pipe and slippers set out for you

                         Em

I know you think that it ain't too far

Dm                           F

   But I hear the call of a lifetime ring

         F-   G-     F

felt the need to get up for it

                    Dm

Oh, you cut out the middleman

    Em

get free from the middleman

F                         F

  You got no time for the messenger,

F                       G              F

  got no regard for the thing that you don't understand,

F                        Em

  you got no fear of the underdog,

G

  that's why you will not survive

F F F G G F F-F

F   Em   G   F  F-G x2

Dm                        F

  I want to forget how conviction fits

          G            F

but can I get out from under it?

             Em

Can I gut it out of me?

F                F

 It can't all be wedding cake

                Dm

It can't all be boiled away

                      Em

I try but I can't let go of it

  E

I can't let go of it,

F                             F

 'Cause you don't talk to the water boy

F                              G             F

 and there's so much you could learn but you don't want to know,

F                        Em

 You will not back up an inch ever,

G

 that's why you will not survive,

F F F G G F F-F

F   Em   G   F  F-G

F   Em   G   F....             F-G

F   Em   G   F  F-G

Dm                 Dm

  The thing that I tell you now

G             F              F-G

It may not go over well

Dm                Dm

And it may not be photo-op

G                 F              F-G

in the way that I spell it out

F                            Em

 But you won't hear from the messenger,

F                       Em                 F     G   
F

 don't wanna know 'bout something that you don't understand,

                       Em

You got no fear of the underdog,

G

 that's why you will not survive

F F F G G F F-F

F   Em   G   F  F-G x2

F   Em   G

F F F G G F F-F

F   Em   G   F  F-G

F   Em   G   F....

Lack of accuracy. It isnt correct the only part that I think is correct is the Am as its the only mme which sounds like the actual song I'm afraid

I have found other tabs that sounded much more accurate than this one on an app on my phone Ukulele Tabs. Hopefully you are able to improve this because it is a great song for the uke!
