notes

Quite a lot of chords in this song, mainly because of the key change in the second verse.
Alternative (maybe easier) version:
      - Use the transposer to turn the chords 2 half step(s) down.
      - Put a capo on fret 2 (if you want to stay in the same key).

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