It's 3/4 timing, like a waltz, so strum appropriately. Each chord gets exactly 4

Flightless Bird, American Mouth
by Iron & Wine

[Verse 1]
         C
I was a quick wet boy
            Am
Diving too deep for coins
            F
All of your straight blind eyes
          G
Wide on my plastic toys
             C
And when the cops closed the fair
          Am
I cut my long baby hair
           F
Stole me a dog-eared map
                  G
And called for you everywhere

[Chorus]
        C
Have I found you?
           Am     F        G
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping

C
Or lost you?
Am
American mouth
F         G
Big bill looming

[Verse 2]
           C
Now I’m a fat house cat
            Am
Cursing my sore blunt tongue
             F
Watching the warm poison rats
                  G
Curl through the wide/white fence cracks
           C
Kissing on magazine photos
      Am                          F
Those fishing lures thrown in the cold and clean
               G
Blood of Christ mountain stream

[Chorus]
C
Have I found you?
Am               F          G
Flightless bird, brown hair bleeding
C
Or lost you?
Am
American mouth
F         G
Big bill, still going down

suggestion: pluck the 1st and third stings once and then the 2nd and 4th strings twice, repeat four times and switch chords

Also, you can pluck strings A,E, & C four times each chord for the first verse, then Strum (D -DD - DD - DDUD) for the chorus. For verse two just strum Down fast about 12times on each chord. Then repeat the chorus and end with plucking the strings and end on a C chord
