the Rest of the song is the same. Jack sometimes mixes up the pattern by triple strumming on the first or third beat of the chord istaed of Hard Chopping like this :

Flake
VERSE:

DM                         Fm         B                                     Fm
I know she said it's all right    You can make it up next time
DM                                 Fm      B                               Fm
I know she knows its not right    There ain't no use in lying
DM                                          Fm      B                                              Fm
Maybe she thinks I know something    maybe, maybe she thinks it's fine
DM                        Fm                                  B            C
Maybe she knows something I don't I'm so,   And I'm so tired, I'm so tired of trying

CHORUS:
Fm                              C      DM                                A
