Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Seems that this band is almost unheard of, but this song is pretty good.
Tab is related to capo on 3rd.

[Intro]
(In this part D is replaced with Dsus2 [xx0230] because you need one finger for the hammer-on,
in chorus regular D is played)

  Bm                D                       A             G
e|--------2---------------------------------------0-------------3------|
B|-3--------3-------3-----------------------2-------2-----3-------3-3--|
G|---4----------2---2--2-----2---2------2-----2-------2-----0----------|
D|-----4------------0----2h4---0----2h4---------2-------------0--------|
A|-2----------2-----------------------------0--------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------3------------|
(Verses are played exactly like intro, just keep going)

[1st Verse]
Bm                 D
You said don’t dye your hair
A                  
You said he was a dream
G                            Bm
I was 19, I could have sworn
D                A   G
He knew me better

        Bm
And four years on
                      D
You say the thrill is gone
            A                     G  Bm
And he’s heading down again tonight
D                        A   G    Bm
You should have known better
 
                    D
And forgive these things you said
              A                 G      Bm
For they’re not what they used to be
D                         A      G
Yeah, I should have known better

[Chorus]
(Strum the same chords you were picking in intro/verse)

                Bm
And you were a soft shirt
               D
You were a soft shirt
             A                 G
You were a penny on these dying eyes
              Bm
I wrote you a letter
                D
And mailed it in pieces
                     A
Laced it through love songs
         G
And crack lullabies

[2nd Verse]
              Bm
Your roar on speakers
                   D
Your battered old sneakers
          A                  G 
And your wool cap pulled so low against the cold
      Bm         D              A    G
I will use this long and crooked arm

              Bm
To fire the flares
                D
To send out the alarm
      A             G
That these hideous hands
             Bm D              A      G        
Will scatter all your best laid plans

(For just this part STOP picking and instead STRUM the chords once and let ring)

              Bm                  D
Alone in the dark I set off the spark
         A               G
It will burn down every boy

Who made you happy

[Instrumental part]
Play the chords one time:
Bm  D  A  G

[Chorus]
                Bm
And you were a soft shirt
               D
You were a soft shirt
             A                 G
You were a penny on these dying eyes
              Bm
I wrote you a letter
                D
And mailed it in pieces
                     A
Laced it through love songs
         G
And crack lullabies

[Outro]
Play the chords a few times:
Bm  D  A  G
