verse 2

This morning I woke up alone
Found a note standing by the phone
Saying maybe I'll be back someday
I wanted to look for you
You walked in I didn't know just what I should do
So I sat back down

Mmmm
Last night I tried to leave
Cried so much I could not believe
She was the same girl I fell in love with long ago
She went in the back to get high
I sat down on my couch and cried
Yellin woman no please help me
Wont you hold my hand and

[chorus]x2

Looks pretty good, though I would change the G and C a bit:

For G  use [320033]

and instead of C in the intro and the first verse (maybe the other verses too, I am not sure, I hae not learned the whole piece yet) replace it with Cadd9

Cadd9 [x32033}

It makes a really easy transition from Cadd9 to G.

For the strumming pattern I would use

DmmmDmmUmUDmmUDU

Where
D = down stroke
U = up stroke
m = miss

So strum in 1/16th notes and hit the notes when indicated above.  

The first time you come to the Cadd9, use the following pattern

DmmmmmmmmDmmUDU

I hope that helps, if my explanation is not clear let me know and I'll try it clarify it.

Keep your stick on the ice!

strumming pattern is spot on, thanks, and it does help to move in 1/16th note speed...

Tab and Strumming help made this a pretty quick song to learn. Does the strumming pattern change during the chorus? I am still relatively new to trying to pick up songs off tabs and listening to it so I don't think my ear is quite right for it yet.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
