AmAm chord                       EE chord
I met a man of two feet tall
         Cadd9Cadd9 chord
This man was quite ambitious
        FF chord             FmFm chord            AmAm chord
In a world that is so vicious to us all
        EE chord          Cadd9Cadd9 chord
I said, "Hi," as he replied
                           FF chord                GG chord               CC chord
He said listen to these words that I have lived by my whole life


                AmAm chord                            FF chord
"You're only as tall as your heart will let you be,
                    GG chord                                CC chord
And you're only as small as the world will make you seem
                        AmAm chord                                 FF chord
And when the goin' gets rough, and you feel like you may fall
                   GG chord                                     AmAm chord
Just look on the bright side, you're roughly six feet tall."

AmAm chord                       EE chord
I met a man of twelve feet tall
       Cadd9Cadd9 chord
He towered like a giant
        FF chord             FmFm chord            AmAm chord
In a world that was defiant of his height
        EE chord          Cadd9Cadd9 chord
I said, "Hi," as he replied
                           FF chord                GG chord               CC chord
He said listen to these words that I have dreaded my whole life


                AmAm chord                            FF chord
"You're only as tall as your heart will let you be,
                    GG chord                                CC chord
And you're only as small as the world will make you seem
                        AmAm chord                                 FF chord
And when the goin' gets rough, and you feel like you may fall
                   GG chord                                     AmAm chord
Just look on the bright side, you're roughly six feet tall."


AmAm chord


AmAm chord                       EE chord
I am a man of six feet tall
       Cadd9Cadd9 chord
Just lookin' for some answers
        FF chord                FmFm chord            AmAm chord
In a world that answers none of them at all
            EE chord         Cadd9Cadd9 chord
I'll say, "Hi," but not reply
                           FF chord              GG chord                  CC chord
To the letters that you write because I found some peace of mind


                   AmAm chord                           FF chord
Cause I'm only as tall as my heart will let me be,
                  GG chord                              CC chord
And I'm only as small as the world will make me seem
                        AmAm chord                             FF chord
And when the goin' gets rough, and I feel like I may fall
                   GG chord                                  CC chord
I'll look on the bright side, I'm roughly six feet tall.

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.
