Super easy and sounds great. 

About the strum pattern: I play this song with what I think of as a "typical" reggae finger picking 
pattern. 
The root note is played with the thumb, then the pointer finger flicks down quickly to play the rest of the 
chord. Immediately after that, the strings are muted with the palm and the fingers on the fretboard release
pressure to stop the strings from buzzing. This creates a crisp stop. 
F: In this song, after playing the F chord three times the "typical" way, on the fourth time before switching 
to Am, there's a twist. The thumb plays the root note AND the string below, then the pointer finger flicks 
both down and up. 
Am: Am is played with the typical pattern once, then the second time before transitioning to Em, the pointer 
finger flicks both down and up.
Em: Hit Em with the typical pattern twice. Now head back to F and repeat until the bridge.
The bridge has different chords (Dm and C) but is still played with the typical pattern.

It takes work to train your fingers to move like this, but it will serve you well if you're learning other 
reggae-type songs. You're also developing new neuronal circuits in your brain, so go you.

The best practice is to listen to the song a bunch and keep trying, even when it feels like you'll never get
it. Here's an acoustic version of the song. Good luck!

F                                                  Am                       Em
Smoke trails and old wives' tales whispered in the hills where the west was won
F                                               Am                       Em
It's been a long time coming can't tell where I start and where I am done
F
Maybe it's best if we stop thinking
Am                Em
Lately I feel my doubt sinking
F                                          Am                     Em
You're not sure but my heart is pure and I gotta let you know something

   F
My love is a one way track
            Am                 Em
We can hop aboard and not look back
            F                
My love can hurt or set you free
                  Am            Em
Just turn a blind eye to reality

My love can
F
Love is a one way track
                   Am                    Em
Speeding down the rails and I can't turn back
              F                 
My love can't give you guarantees
                Am                   Em
Just close your eyes and come with me

F                                               Am                    Em
I've always been the one lost in a dream when I should've been serious
F                                               Am                    Em
You've always been the type to hold back even though you were curious
F              
Maybe it's best if we stop drinking
Am                       Em
But we can never let the doubt sink in
F                                           Am                     Em
I'm not sure and it might be the cure but I gotta let you know something

Just turn a blind eye to reality

Dm
We're too far gone
C
It's too right to go wrong
Dm
So get on board
C
Whatever you feel you act on
Dm
It's a one way track
C
And no we can't turn back
Dm
Headed out straight never hesitate
C
And I don't have to tell you that
