Is a very simply pattern of finger-picking, just keeping "index" "middle" and "ring"
fingers on 3rd, 2nd and 1st string respectively, using "thumb" at first stroke to "play" 
the note for the introducing "chord". 


    No-Chord pattern

e|---------0----------------0---------------0-------------------------------|
B|------0---0-0----------0---0-0---------0---0-0----------------------------|
G|-----0-0---0----------0-0---0---------0-0---0-----------------------------|
D|-------------------"0"----------------------------------------------------|
A|--"0"---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------"0"------------------------------------|

This is only for you to see how the pattern goes. With the quoted "0" note indicating
when the "thumb" strokes to introduce the new chord to be played. Just place your
"index" "middle" and "ring" fingers on 3rd, 2nd and 1st string respectively, and try 
practising the pattern till you play smoothly, then add the chords...stroking "thumb" 
first to mark the changing.

So the song goes all along just repeating the finger picking pattern, the only difficulty 
is to find out where to apply each key-word to the corresponding string stroke. 

Which I´ll try to explain...listen to the song while reading to ease understanding.

It´s much more difficult to explain than to indeed play the song, as soon as you get used to 
the pattern and chord changing.

As you see I´ve "quote-marked" the stroke exactly under the key-word.

At the beginning is a little bit complicated to square strokes with lyrics...
but listen to the song, and try to finger-pick without thinking about matches.
...soon you´ll figure out that pattern in "2nd" and "3rd" string strokes combined with thumb 
at every chord change is the key for the whole drawing.

And when sustained-singing words (I mean like "across a looooong looooost vio / lin ") 
just keep the beat in the finger-picking. Perhaps this is the most difficult part of all 
the song, but don´t think too much and try keep the beat...the same word "vi-o-lin" matches 
perfectly with every stroke...but you´ll have to fast change from C to D chord. 

To resume: Listen many times to the song while reading, before start singing make sure 
you control chord changes and finger-picking pattern (listen to the song), search the beat 
speed you feel more comfortable with (listen to the song), find how to match lyricks with strokes, 
be conscious about the importance of "thumb", "2nd" and "3rd" string...
know "quoted" notes are placed right under the key-word. 

Listen to the song. I think is very beatiful one you don´t get tired of.

Best regards, enjoy
