Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is the definative song of the album i think, and it's one of my favourite
songs ever written. (Also, despite critical statements about the Ether Song
album, it's great, and perfect for those seeking acoustic bliss.)

Chords
======
Emin (779987)
D (557775)
C (335553)
B (224442)
E (022100) or alternatively (779997)
Bmin (224432)
A (002220) or alternatively (577655)

Intro
=====
Here they are just playing through the verse chords, first plucking the 5th
string note, and then strumming the rest of the strings after. (N.B. When they
reach the C they strum the rest of the strings subsequent times.)

The chords are:
Emin - D - C - B

Then they launch into the verse:
(N.B. when strumming the chords highlight the top 3 strings to get the same
effect on the song.)

Verse
===== 
Emin          D        C                     B  
If this gets ugly, I swear, this ain't our last chance.
Emin                D          C              B
The vultures that circle, my head, are flying alongside.
Emin   D    C    B
The world's turning...

Chorus
======
E       Bmin         A
I let somebody get under my skin.
E                Bmin     A
Long distance, losing is all that i'd seen.
E             Bmin  A
Now there's a river.
E             Bmin  A
Now there's a river.

Verse
=====
Emin         D                      C
Nothing can save me, my resolve betrayed me,
              B
Here come the hurricanes,
Emin              D                     C
I'm burning to get there, the middle of nowhere,
                  B
Storm warnings flicker while,
Emin  D     C    B
The world's turning.

Chorus
======
E       Bmin         A
I let somebody get under my skin.
E                Bmin     A
Long distance, losing is all that i'd seen.
E             Bmin  A
Now there's a river.
E             Bmin  A
Now there's a river.

After chorus keep strumming the chorus chords...

Chorus     [slight break in the strumming pattern here]
======        |
E       Bmin  |       A
I let somebody| get under my skin.
E                Bmin     A
Long distance, losing is all that i see.
E             Bmin  A
Now there's a river.
E             Bmin  A
Now there's a river.

Keep strumming the A chord until fade out.

Chord voicings are correct, but are actually played differently. I'm pretty certain the verse chords are played as follows -

Em: 12 0 0 12 12 0,
D: 10 8 0 0 10 0,
C: 8 6 0 0 8 0,
B: 7 9 9 8 0 0,

All in all, a cracking song by one of my favourite bands. MJ

I'm mortified that there was a bad word said against this album, it's a truly beautiful expression of music :)
