Intro -x4-: D  G

D                     G
I ain't the kind you take home to Mama
 D                  G
I ain't the kind to wear no ring
   D         G
Somehow I always get stronger
  D              G
When I'm on my second drink


Interlude -x2-: D  G


  D               G
Even though I hate to admit it
 D               G
Sometimes I smoke cigarettes
D                       G
The Christian folk say I should quit it
D                   G
I just smile and say, 'God bless'


Interlude: D


Chorus:
      A
Cause I heard Jesus, He drank wine
      G             D
And I bet we'd get along just fine
          A
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
       G                               D
And I bet He'd understand a heart like mine


Interlude -x2-: D  G


 D                   G
Daddy cried when he saw my tattoo
 D                G
Said he loved me anyway
     D               G
My brother got the brains of the family
D                 G
So I thought I'd learn to sing


Interlude: D


Chorus:
      A
Cause I heard Jesus, He drank wine
      G             D
And I bet we'd get along just fine
          A
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
       G                               D
And I bet He'd understand a heart like mine


Interlude -x4-: D  G


Bridge:
              Em7    D  
Well, I'll flyyyy, awaay 
        Em7           D
From it all.....  one day
          Em7            A
And I'll flyyy........ away, 


       D                    G
But these are the days that I will remember
 D                    G
When my name's called on the roll
 D                      G
He'll meet me with two long-stemmed glasses
 D                   G
And make a toast to me coming home


Interlude: D


Chorus:
      A
Cause I heard Jesus, He drank wine
      G             D
And I bet we'd get along just fine
          A
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
       G                               D
And I bet He'd understand a heart like mine

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.
