Basically the same as the Old Crow Medicine Show version, but a step down (i.e. no capo). 
The basic strum pattern is: down, down/up, down/up.

I mean, I guess I'll start practicing this. I would have preferred if you posted the tab for Kiss Me by Sixpense None the Richer.

There are some tabs for that song out there. However, I will work on it. It's definitely one of my favorites.
