Chorus:
C               F
I don’t know my name
Am                  G
I don’t play by the rules of the game
       C             F
So you say, I’m just trying
     Am         G
Just try... ... ing
 
Verse 1: -faster-
     C                F
So I heard you are my sister’s friend
    Am              G
You get along quite nicely
    C            F
You ask me why I cut my hair
    Am                G
And changed myself completely -slower-
 
Chorus: -faster-
C               F
I don’t know my name
    Am                  G
And I don’t play by the rules of the game
       C             F
So you say, I’m just trying
     Am         G
Just try... ... ing
 
Verse 2:
  C                   F
I went from bland and popular to
Am             G
Joining the marching band
  C                F
I made the closest friends I'll ever
Am            G
Have in my lifetime
 
Bridge:
F
    I am lost
G Am
    Trying to get found
G
    In an ocean of
F F Am Am
People...
F                            Am
    Please don't asked me any...questions
            G
There won't be a valid answer
           F
I'll just say...
 
Chorus: -soft and slow-
C               F
I don’t know my name
Am                  G
I don’t play by the rules of the game
       C             F
So you say, I’m just trying -little faster-
     Am         G
Just try... ... ing -faster and louder-
 
Chorus: -loud and strong and fast-
C             F
I now know my name
Am                  G
I don’t play by the rules of the game
       C            F
So you say, I’m not trying
        Am         G
But I’m try... ... ing
               C
To find my way

It’s 4 down strums until you reach the “I am lost” section, then it is one strum down for each chord. Then after the “I am lost” section you go back to doing 4 strums down.

For the strumming I just used D D U U D
Btw for any beginners D is down and U is up I used to get confused with D’s and U’s so just making that clear
