Verse:
DD chord            GG chord               DD chord
If we were children I would bake you a mud pie
DD chord          GG chord                DD chord
Warm and brown beneath the sun
DD chord      GG chord                   DD chord
Never learned to climb a tree but I would try
DD chord         GG chord                DD chord
Just to show you what I'd done

     GG chord           DD chord   
Oh what I wouldn't do
          AA chord             DD chord
If I had you, babe, I had you
     GG chord              DD chord
Oh what I wouldn't do

If I had you, babe
 
Verse -same as first-:

If I were old, my dearest, you would be older
But I would crawl upon your lap
Wrap a blanket ‘round our frail little shoulders
And I'd die happily like that

Oh what I wouldn't do

If I had you, babe, if I had you

So lace your hands ‘round the small of my back and I will kiss you like a king
        GG chord                            DD chord
I will be your bride, I'll keep you warm at night

I will sing, I will sing

Verse -same as first-:
DD chord       GG chord               DD chord                  
It was now and we were both in the same place
Didn't know how to say the words
With my heart ticking like a bomb in a birdcage
I left before someone got hurt
 
Chorus:
     GG chord           DD chord   
Oh what I wouldn't do
          AA chord             DD chord
If I had you, babe, I had you
     GG chord              DD chord
Oh what I wouldn't do
          AA chord                DD chord
If I had you, babe, if I had you

    The lyrics are incorrect at the end… it should say

    “It was what I wouldn’t do/
    When I had you, babe, I had you/
    It was what I wouldn’t do/
    When I had you, babe, when I had you.”

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming patterns, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
