Intro -x2-: BmBm chord  AA chord  GG chord

BmBm chord           AA chord              GG chord            BmBm chord
  I find the map and draw a straight line
     AA chord                  GG chord          BmBm chord
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
             AA chord                 GG chord       BmBm chord
The distance from "A" to where you'd be
          AA chord                   GG chord    BmBm chord
It's only finger lengths that I see


            AA chord GG chord  BmBm chord              
I touch the place 
                    AA chord GG chord BmBm chord
Where I'd find your face
              AA chord   GG chord  BmBm chord
My fingers in creases
                AA chord  GG chord  BmBm chord
Of distant dark places


          AA chord              GG chord        BmBm chord
I hang my coat up in the first bar
            AA chord                    GG chord     BmBm chord
There is no peace that I've felt so far
             AA chord             GG chord      BmBm chord
The laughter penetrates my silence
           AA chord                 GG chord      BmBm chord
As drunken men find flaws in science


                   AA chord  GG chord  BmBm chord 
Their words mostly noises
                 AA chord  GG chord  BmBm chord 
Ghosts with just voices
                 AA chord   GG chord BmBm chord 
Your words in my memory
               AA chord  GG chord  BmBm chord 
Are like music to me


               DD chord       
I'm miles from where you are,
 AA chord                GG chord             BmBm chord
I, lay down on the cold ground I,
                      DD chord
I pray that something picks me up
    AA chord                    Cadd9Cadd9 chord
And, sets me down in your   warm arms


BmBm chord       AA chord               GG chord     BmBm chord
   After I have traveled so far
             AA chord           GG chord        BmBm chord
We'd set the fire to the third bar
                AA chord             GG chord     BmBm chord
We'd share each other like an island
        AA chord                  GG chord      BmBm chord
Until exhausted, close our eyelids


                  AA chord  GG chord   BmBm chord 
And dreaming pick up from
                  AA chord    GG chord  BmBm chord 
The last place we left off
                  AA chord   GG chord  BmBm chord 
Your soft skin is weeping
                AA chord    GG chord  BmBm chord 
AA chord joy you can't keep in


               DD chord
I'm miles from where you are,
 AA chord                GG chord                 BmBm chord
I, lay down on the cold ground And I,
                      DD chord              AA chord
I pray that something picks me up and
                    Cadd9Cadd9 chord        BmBm chord
Sets me down in your    warm arms


               DD chord               
I'm miles from where you are
 AA chord                GG chord                 BmBm chord
I, lay down on the cold ground and I,
                      DD chord
I pray that something picks me up
   AA chord                    Cadd9Cadd9 chord         BmBm chord
and sets me down in your     warm arms

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.
