For the chorus strum pattern, let the playback play through the pattern twice for the 4 chords in each chorus 
section (so 32 strums total across 4 chords (Em, Cmaj, G, D)

Right after you strum Dsus4 twice (down, up) you switch to D and same with Em7 to Em

Also, I like to strum an open up-down right before the Cmaj to give it more fill.

Cmaj

[Verse]


G         Dsus4   D                   Em7 Em    Cmaj        
There's a funeral procession on the highway,
G       Dsus4  D        Em7 Em    Cmaj
Traffic screeches to a halt.
G              Dsus4 D          Em7 Em    Cmaj
There's people searching for a better way,
              G   Dsus4 D Em7  Cadd9
To live their lives.
G      Dsus4 D                   Em7 Em    Cmaj      
Johnny lived a good life, you'll hear them say
G           Dsus4 D          Em7 Em    Cmaj
As tears of sadness soak the ground.
G          Dsus4 D            Em7 Em    Cmaj
The reaper crept in, took his breath away,
                     G   Dsus4 D Em7 Em Cmaj
In the middle of the night.

[Chorus]

Em                               Cmaj
We celebrate the lives of the dead,
                       G                           D
It's like a man's best party, only happens when he dies.
Em                                Cmaj
We gather 'round to pay our respects,
            G                                  D
While their souls are still searching for the light,
           D                
Searching for the light.

[Verse]

G               Dsus4 D           Em7 Em    Cmaj
So please don't come to me on my dying day,
G          Dsus4 D Em7 Cadd9
Just let me go in peace.
G            Dsus4 D        Em7 Em    Cmaj
With all the things that I forgot to say,
                       G  Dsus4 D Em7 Em Cmaj
Still racing through my mind.
G           Dsus4 D            Em7 Em    Cmaj
And don't you bury me six feet under ground,
G         Dsus4 D      Em7 Em    Cmaj
Just burn my body in a box.
G          Dsus4 D Em7 Em        Cmaj
And let my ashes blow with the wind,
             G  Dsus4 D Em7 Em Cmaj
Out into the night.... sky.


[Chorus]

Em                               Cmaj
We celebrate the lives of the dead,
                       G                           D
It's like a man's best party, only happens when he dies.
Em                                Cmaj
We gather 'round to pay our respects,
            G                                  D
While their souls are still searching for the light,
           D
Searching for the light.
