Hey, so I know that this song is done using Ukelele, but this is as close as I could get 
it to sound right on the guitar. I have the strumming pattern as well, but please 
listen to the song to help you understand the pattern, it's not hard.
Hope you all enjoy, please give feedback if this helps you.

Oh all my friends are turning green,

You're the magicians assistant in their dreams.

Lady, running down to the riptide,

Am                         G                C

this cowboy's running from himself.

And she's been living on the highest shelf
