Intro: C Cmaj7 C7 Cmaj7

Verse:
C      Cmaj7                     C7 
Oh kiss me out of the bearded barley,
        Cmaj7                         C
Nightly , beside the green, green grass
             Cmaj7                   C7
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step

You'll wear those shoes and I will wear that dress

Chorus:
   Dm    G   C           Am              Dm
Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
    G        C           C7            F
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
     G              C
Lift you open hand
            Em              Am               G
Strike up the band, and make the fireflies dance, 
                  F
Silvermoon's sparkling,
G G G
So kiss me

Interlude: C Cmaj7 C7 Cmaj7

Verse:
C      Cmaj7                         C7
Kiss me down by the broken tree house 
        Cmaj7                  C
Swing me , upon its hanging tire
             Cmaj7                   C7
Bring, bring , bring your flowered hat
                                   F
We'll take the trail marked on your father's map

Chorus - 2x -:
   Dm    G   C           Am              Dm
Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
    G        C           C7            F
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
     G              C
Lift you open hand
            Em              Am               G
Strike up the band, and make the fireflies dance, 
                  F
Silvermoon's sparkling,
G G G
So kiss me

Outro: Dm G C Am Dm G C Cmaj7

In 1999, “Kiss Me” was released as a single, propelling Sixpence None the Richer into the national pop spotlight. That year the song was also featured in the film “She’s All That” as the newly made-over protagonist, Laney Boggs, is revealed, and again at the end, during the film’s credits. In 2001 the film “Not Another Teen Movie” would use the song in a parody of that scene. “Kiss Me” was also played on the WB teen drama “Dawson’s Creek” in episodes #2-06 “The Dance” and #2-18 “The Perfect Wedding,” and is found on the show’s first soundtrack CD, “Songs from Dawson’s Creek” -Volume 1-.

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.
