EbEb chord 
a winter's day
     AbAb chord               EbEb chord      
In a deep and dark December;


FmFm chord BbBb chord  AbAb chord EbEb chord
I  am alone,
FmFm chord             BbBb chord      FmFm chord                BbBb chord
Gazing from my window to the streets below
     FmFm chord             AbAb chord                BbBb chord
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.


       EbEb chord 
I am a rock,
        BbBb chord  EbEb chord    
I am an is-land.


           EbEb chord    
I've built walls,
  AbAb chord                 EbEb chord      
a fortress deep and mighty,
     FmFm chord   BbBb chord   AbAb chord   EbEb chord  
That none may penetrate.
  FmFm chord              BbBb chord           FmFm chord                BbBb chord
I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.
      FmFm chord               AbAb chord           BbBb chord
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.


       EbEb chord 
I am a rock,
        BbBb chord  EbEb chord    
I am an is-land.


              EbEb chord    
Don't talk of love,
     AbAb chord                 EbEb chord      
I've heard the words before;
     FmFm chord   BbBb chord         AbAb chord   EbEb chord  
It's sleeping in my memory.
      FmFm chord                BbBb chord          FmFm chord                 BbBb chord
And I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
     FmFm chord            AbAb chord                BbBb chord
If I never loved I never would have cried.


       EbEb chord 
I am a rock,
        BbBb chord  EbEb chord    
I am an is-land.


          EbEb chord    
I have my books


       AbAb chord            EbEb chord      
And my poetry to protect me;
     FmFm chord   BbBb chord         AbAb chord   EbEb chord  
I am shielded in my armor,


FmFm chord           BbBb chord     FmFm chord             BbBb chord 
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.


  FmFm chord               AbAb chord              BbBb chord
I touch no one and no one touches me.


       EbEb chord 
I am a rock,
        BbBb chord  EbEb chord    
I am an is-land.


      AbAb chord     GmGm chord      EbEb chord
And a rock  feels no pain;
       AbAb chord      GmGm chord   EbEb chord
And an island never cries.

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.
