      Em  Am Em       Am        Em   Am Em
Summertime,   and the livin' is easy
         Am                        B7  C7 B7
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
             Em  Am Em         Am           Em    Am Em
Your daddy's rich,    and your momma's good lookin'
   G           A7    B7        Em  Am Em
So hush little baby, don't you cry


Em                  Am Em             Am      Em    Am Em
One of these mornings,   you're gonna rise up singing
            Am                                        B7  C7 B7
Then you'll spread your wings, and you'll take to the sky
              Em    Am Em         Am          Em      Am Em
But till that morning,  there's a nothin' can harm you
     G         A7     B7       Em  Am Em
With daddy and mammy, standing by

    I have a limited knowledge of music theory, but the best that I can tell, the strumming pattern that I use is counted as “1,2 3 e and a 4” written out I guess it would look like
    Down Down Down Up Up Up Down

    The first verse, and others like it that have the dominant followed by the iv and back to the dominant, also the end of the second verse where the v7 is followed quickly by the vi, the iv and vi are played on the “e and a” so the three up beats.
    If anyone reading this has a better of understanding of music theory and can explain this better than I then please feel free to correct me
    I hope this helps someone out

  2. What is the strum???

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.
