Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is a good one for all you rhythm players:
You have to listen to get it right. If you give a quick lift and play open strings 
the D and Cadd9 in the intro and the E and D on the outro it sounds pretty good, to me atleast.
Standard Tuning

Intro strumming is D, Cadd9, G, D

Verse 1
        D                               Cadd9     G        D
My Grandmother owned a night club on the Arkansas Oklahoma line
                                                                    A7
Mama put me on a Greyhound and I went to stay with her in the summertime
    G                               Cadd9             G       
       D
I'd box up those empty longnecks and stack 'em in the back and make a hand
                                           Cadd9        G              
D
Then at night she'd let me sneak out of the kitchen and sit in with the band

Verse 2
                                      Cadd9              G             
 D
Yes I have sacked some quartebacks and broke my share of bones along the way
                                                          A7
I knew it wouldn't last forever semi-pro always means semi-payed
  G                                 Cadd9                G    
         D
I started climbin' drillin' rigs I'm oil field trash and proud as I can be
                                   Cadd9          G              D
Then I took my songs and guitar and sang 'em to a man from Tennessee

Chorus
            G                           Cadd9          G      
   D
I've played every beer joint tavern from New York City out to Pasadena
                                                             A7
Every corn dog fair and rodeo and sold out every basketball arena
        D                          Cadd9         G            D
Like to get down with my boys in Afghanistan and Bahgdad City too
       D               F         Cadd9        G      
  D
I am a red, white, and blue blood graduate of Honkytonk U

Repeat Intro strummming

Verse 3
  E                               D                   A
A star can't burn forever and the brightest ones will someday loose their
E                                                               B7
shine.  But the glass won't ever be half empty in my optimistic mind
           A                         D               A        
     E
I'll still have a song to sing and a band to turn it up and play it loud
                                     D                  A         E
As long as there's a bar room with a corner stage and a honkytonk crowd

Chorus
            A                            D             A      
  E
I've played every beer joint tavern from New York City out o Pasadena
                                                             B7
Every corn dog fair and rodeo and sold out every basketball arena
        E                          D             A            E
Like to get down with my boys in Afghanistan and Bahgdad City too
          E               G          D           A   
     E
Son I'm a red, white, and blue blood graduate of Honkytonk U
               E              G          D           
        E
That's right a red, white and blue blood graduate of Honkytonk U

Then finish strum out with  E, D, A, E

Have Fun with it!!
