B|-3--3-----3---1--3|
G|-0--0-----0---2--2|
D|-0--2-----2---2---|

G                         
Every day a child is born
                       Cadd9
No one knows what he's here for
              
Was he born a sinner
G                                  
So fix him now while you still can
                Cadd9
Turn that boy into a man
                
He's gotta be a winner

Am                    D
Everyone's in on the deal
        Am                         D
There's only certain things that a boy can feel

       G                   Caad9                  Em7           Cadd9
And we lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie ,lie all the time, all the time
       G                    Cadd9                        Em7
And we try, try, try to get by, by, by, but all the while 
               Caad9*                  G Cadd9           G   Cadd9
Behind all the smiles, even angels cry,      even angels cry

G                         
Every day a child is born
                        Cadd9
No one knows what she's here for
               
Was she born a Barbie
   G                               
So fix her hair and stand her tall
                    Cadd9
Or else she'll be invisible
                 
Forget she has a heartbeat

Am                       D
Everyone knows that it's true
        Am                         D
There's only certain things that a girl can do

       G                   Caad9                  Em7           Cadd9
And we lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie ,lie all the time, all the time
       G                    Cadd9                        Em7
And we try, try, try to get by, by, by, but all the while 
               Caad9*                  
Behind all the smiles, even angels cry,
                 G  Cadd9          G Cadd9               G                               Cadd9
 even angels cry,      even angels cry,      even angels cry,      even angels cry, cry, cry

Am                    D
Hey you over there disappearing like a ghost
        Am                            D
There's so much in your soul that the world will never know
       G*       Cadd9*    Em7*      Cadd9*       G* Cadd9*    Em7  Cadd9
If we lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie ,lie all the time, all the time
       G                    Cadd9                         Em7
And we try, try, try to get by, by, by, but all the while 
               Cadd9                        
Behind all the smiles, even angels cry, 
G Cadd9           G   Cadd9         G   Cadd9             G  Cadd9*
      Even angels cry,  even angels cry    even angels cry

Hi, I'm very new to guitar and don't know how to play very well. Would you be able to tell me the strumming pattern? Thanks.

These aren't very accurate chords, when I posted this i'd only listened to the song 1 time the chords are actually:

G Gsus4/E and G/E occasionally
e|-3-3----------3-|
b|-3-3----------3-|
g|-0-0----------0-|
d|-0-2----------2-|
a|-2-3----------2-|
e|-3-0----------0-|

the strumming pattern is D, D, U, U, D, U x4 per chord

These chords are not right. The verse is listed as having 4 chords, it only has two and they're totally different to the ones listed.
The verse is as listed above by the author in his correction comment but they're called G (even tho it has four fingers, it's still a normal G) and Cadd9.
The third chord listed is an Em7 i.e Em with the same two fingers on the B and E strings where they were for the G and Cadd9

e|-3-3----------3-|
B|-3-3----------3-|
G|-0-0----------0-|
D|-0-2----------2-|
A|-2-3----------2-|
E|-3-0----------0-|

The only other chords you need are D and Am. There's a nice live version on youtube with him and Alys Ffion where you can see what she's playing, The D chord looks like it's a Dsus9 which is a regular C slid up two frets.
She also plays the G and Cadd9 without the first finger whereas he does in the music video, he gets the hammer on with it onto the 2nd fret of the A string on both the G and Cadd9 chords.

Video here with Alys https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uZhdluTS7I

Hope that helps :)
