Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Use single note fillers between verses and choruses.  
The picking parts are relatively easy to pick up from the song.
I am not a musician, but this song's chords were not on line, so I did the best I could to figure them out.
I also found that in the key of C, the G notes in the choruses over the "Ooh" and "Yeah" sound a little
better done as an F chord on the 3rd fret.
Please feel free to submit or edit using real music science!


[Verse 1]
        C               G            F                 C
May the wind be at your back and the world sit at your feet.
        F               C            G7                    G       G7
May you waltz across Wy-oming with a rose clutched in your teeth.
        C               G                   F                  C
May the answers to your questions fall like raindrops right on cue.
        F              C                G7                 C
May you set up shop in Heaven 'fore the devil knows you're due.

[Chorus 1]
G              C               F              C               F
Ooh, here's to love, here's to life.  All the fair and tender ladies
        G                   G7
and the plain dirt farmer's wife.
G               C              F                C            F
Yeah, here's to you, here's to me, some ol' mad dog mountain flyboy
        G        G7      C
and the kid from Ten-nes-see.

[Verse 2]
         C                     G                 F                C
May your nights be filled with laughter and your days with honest work.
        F                C                 G7               G        G7
May you wake up smelling roses when you're face down in the dirt.
       C                G                F                     C
If you had the sense to come in when the storm clouds start to grow,
         F              C                  G7                 C
then you wouldn't be my right hand and the best friend that I know.

[Chorus 2]
G              C               F                C                  F
Ooh, here's to life, here's to love.  When your heart beats like a lion
         G                G7
and your shoes fit like a glove.
G               C              F            C                F
Yeah, here's to you, here's to me, some ol' mad dog mountain flyboy
        G        G7      C
and the kid from Ten-nes-see.

[Verse 3]
        C              G              F                    C
May you always stay in touch with the things that keep you young.
                F             C                G7    G         G7
and when you're staring at in-justice, may you never bite your tongue.
        C                   G               F             C
May the bear tracks in your future find you downwind in a glade,
          F                 C                  G7              C
where the grass as green as absinthe, comes in forty different shades.

[Chorus 3]
G              C               F              C               F
Ooh, here's to love, here's to life.  All the fair and tender ladies
        G                G7
and the old fishmonger's wife. 
G               C              F            C                F
Yeah, here's to you, here's to me, some ol' mad dog mountain flyboy
        G        G7      C
and the kid from Ten-nes-see.
G             C              F                C                F
Yeah, set 'em up, drinks for free.   It's the mad dog mountain flyboy
        G        G7      C
and the kid from Ten-nes-see.
