Intro: EmEm chord

EmEm chord                     CC chord         EmEm chord
follow you down to the red oak tree
       GG chord                          AmAm chord       EmEm chord
as the air moves thick through the hollow reeds
        AmAm chord                      CC chord             EmEm chord
will you wait for me there until someone comes
   AmAm chord                EmEm chord
to carry me, carry me down


    EmEm chord                CC chord        EmEm chord
see i have not i have not grown cold
       GG chord                       AmAm chord        EmEm chord
i have stole from men who have stole from those
            AmAm chord                    CC chord           EmEm chord
with their arms so thin and their skin so old
            AmAm chord                       EmEm chord
but you are young, you are young, you are young


     BmBm chord                        CC chord       GG chord
then somebody laughs like it’s all just for hell
              BmBm chord                          CC chord       GG chord
as though we could not be saved from the depth of the well
         AmAm chord                     CC chord           EmEm chord
but the cloth that i make is a cloth you can sell
   CC chord                DD chord
to pay for the gossamer seed


EmEm chord                       CC chord      EmEm chord
names get carved in the red oak tree
       GG chord                     AmAm chord        EmEm chord
of the ones who stay and the ones who leave
       AmAm chord                            CC chord              EmEm chord
i will wait for you there with these cindered bones
   AmAm chord        DD chord         EmEm chord
so follow me follow me down
AmAm chord        DD chord         EmEm chord
follow me follow me down
AmAm chord        DD chord         EmEm chord
follow me follow me down
AmAm chord        DD chord         EmEm chord
follow me follow me down

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
