Verse:
D         A                       Bm
Turn away, if you could get me a drink of water
       G
Cuz my lips are chapped and faded
        D
Call my Aunt Marie
A                      Bm
Help her gather all my things
               G
And bury me in all my favourite colours
   G             Gm                 
My sisters and my brothers

D         A                      Bm
Turn away, cuz I'm awful just to see
                   G
Cuz all my hair's abandoned all my body
      D     
Oh my agony
A                      Bm
Know that I will never marry
              G
Baby I'm just soggy from the chemo
    G                 Gm         A
I'm counting down the days to go

A   Gbm   Gb   Bm
This just ain't livin'

I will not kiss you

I'll ask you to be true
        G               A                Bm   Gb   D   E
Cuz the hardest part of this is leaving you

  1. when it goes If you say goodbye today I’ll ask you to be true (in +5) swap the Em and the Cm around it sounds a lot nicer

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.
