There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Not a lot of Pretenders tunes tabbed out on the net so I thought I would add.

'Thumbelina' is one of the tracks from 1983's Learning to Crawl LP.
Chrissie plays the "E" chord open but the "A" , "B"  and "G" chords are barred 'E' at 
the 5th 7th and 3rd frets respectively
This song is AWESOME!

Thumbelina - The Pretenders

Hush little baby, don't you cry
When we get to Tucson you'll see why
We left the snowstorms and the thunder and rain
For the desert sun, we're gonna be born again
  B               A
What's important in this world
  B            A             E
A little boy, a little girl

Hush little darling, go to sleep
Look out the window and count the sheep
That dot the hillsides and the fields of wheat
Across America as we cross America

    B              A
What's important here today
B              A              E
The broken line on the highway

E-F-#F-G (single notes or barre chords)

G                    E
All the love in the world for you, girl
G                E
Thumbelina in a great big scary world

E-F-#F-G (single notes or barre chords)

G                     E
All the love in the world for you, girl
G                  A       B                  E
Take my hand and we'll make it through this world

Hush little baby, my poor little thing
You've been shuffled about like a pawned wedding ring
It must seem strange, love was here then gone
And the Oklahoma sunrise becomes the Amarillo dawn

  B              A
What's important in this life

   B               A              E
Ask the man who's lost his wife

This is a great, underrated rockabilly song. I appreciate the tidbit about Chrissie sliding up and down the neck with the barred e-chord. Thank you for posting this awesome tab!
