There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This version is mostly intended to simplify and include the whole song so it works with 
the scrolling feature in Ultimate Guitar's 'Tabs' app in such a way that all the lyrics
are chorded out over the whole song. (Some other versions I've seen out there just chord
out the first verse over the lyrics and give the remaining lyrics where the chords don't
work with the transpose feature.) The arrangement is simplified to fingerings in the key
of 'C' for novice players. 
However, the song is actually in E so to play the true key, simply capo as indicated.

Capo IV

[Verse 1]
Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by and you can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half-crazy, but that's why you want to be there
Em                                          F
And she feeds you tea and oranges that come all the way from China
C                                       F
Just when you mean to tell her that you have no love to give her
C                                      Dm
She gets you on her wavelength and she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover

        Em                       F
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you,
           F                                  C
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind

[Verse 2]
And Jesus was a sailor when he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain only drowning men could see him
        Em                             F
He said all men will be sailors then until the sea shall free them
C                                F
But he himself was broken long before the sky would open
   C                       Dm                              C
Forsaken, almost human, he sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

        Em                      F
And you want to travel with him and you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust him,
         F                                  C
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind

[Verse 3]
Now Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers from Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey on our lady of the harbour
         Em                                F
Then she shows you where to look among the garbage and the flowers
          C                                F
There are heroes in the seaweed, there are children in the morning
         C                                  Dm
They are leaning out for love and they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror

        Em                               F
And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
          F                                  C
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind

W4ell, the chord changes are in the right place, which is unusual for this site.
