Shakey picks it with a plectrum with strumming for certain sections (which I will outline) 
and he throws the odd strum in with the picking for varaition/ accentuation etc.

I have been satisfied mostly fingerpicking using a P I P M P I pattern. 
So I pick the verse as follows:

  Em
e|----------------|
B|--------8-------|
G|--9----------9--|
D|-----9----------|
A|7----------7----|
E|----------------|

  C
e|----------------|
B|--------9-------|
G|--10------------|
D|-----10---------|
A|--------------10|
E|8----------8----|

  G
e|----------------|
B|--------3-------|
G|--4-----------4-|
D|-----5----------|
A|----------------|
E|3-----------3---|

  D7
e|----------------|
B|--------7-------|
G|--5-----------5-|
D|-----7----------|
A|5-----------5---|
E|----------------|

C7 is strummed once at the "Yeah but you emptied my pockets".

Bm section is strummed throughout and picking resumes on the Em.

The G just before the Bm ("you were wild but you were dealt to me" line) is strummed in both 
instances.
