Verse:
EbEb chord        GG chord               CmCm chord      BbBb chord
If I get murdered in the city,

EbEb chord        GG chord                CmCm chord      BbBb chord
I wonder which brother is better

Which one our parents love the most.

I sure did get in lots of trouble,

they seem to let the other go.

a tear fell from my father's eyes,
CmCm chord         BbBb chord                 EbEb chord
I wondered what my dad would say.

He Said I love you, 
        AbAb chord            EbEb chord
but i'm proud of you both,

In so many different ways.

go read the letter in my desk.

like the love that let us share our name.

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.
