There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
i posted a cover of this song on my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBIN9AmpKk8

these are my very first chords and honestly i don't know much about playing guitar, i really just watched 
Keaton's CARDINAL SESSION billions of times and this is what i got from it. 

his picking pattern is something like this, only a lot more complicated: 



he does some special stuff, watch the video to figure it out: 

the F is always like this: (x-x-3-2-1-0) so it's pretty easy, no barre chords needed

also if there's something like Am-G-F, it means that the chords changes are quicker, i couldn't come up 
with a better way to make that clear. 

please contact me for any corrections.

C E Am G-F 

[Verse I]
           C            E
If I’m to die before I reach you
                         Am               F
Please know I’m meant to love you till I did
           C               E
If I’m to slip beneath a train meant to take me
          Am                    F
Know that I believe that it was worth it
         C                        E
Tell my friends goodbye, tell my almost ex-wife
        Am            G           F        G 
That I loved her and left her too soon
      Am         G           F
Oh I hope to be holding you soon

C                         G
Who knows what happens if I leave my room
        Am                G            F
Oh I’m scared that you’ll know what to do
E                     Am-G-F F  G G
If I’m to die before you

[Verse II]
          C            E
If i’m to die before I hold you
         Am                         F
Know my arms were the worst off for it
       C                      E
If i’m set upon dried from my room as I write
          Am                          F       G
You won't be my last thought before I quit
         C                  E
Give my family love I would watch from above
       Am                        F        G G
But I fear there is nothing but sleep
     Am         G           F
Oh I hope to be seeing you soon

C                                  G          
Don’t know what's out there, more fear I assume
       Am                 G            F
Oh i’m scared that you’ll know what to do
E                     Am-G-F  G G
If i’m to die before you     

[Verse III]
              C             E                         
And if i’m to die before we spend a soft day
         Am                        F
Know my final thoughts will be of regret
           C            E
If i'm to drown in the deep sea that parts us
   Am             G            F          G G
I once lived and loved, don’t forget
         C                        E
Give my paintings to Alice, tell all my good friends
        Am                     F        G G
That I didn’t dare earn their respect
     Am         G           F
Oh I hope to be seeing you soon

   C                         G 
I don’t know what happens if I leave my room
       Am                 G            F 
Oh I’m scared that you’ll know what to do
E                    Am-G-F
If I'm to die before you
G                     C
If I'm to die before you

end on C

Sounds good to me. Definitely way better than the other tab for this song. Only correction i see is the lyric, "If i'm set upon, dried from my room", should be "If I'm set upon, dragged from my room" Other than that, perfect to me.

I'm having difficulty doing the finger-picking transition from Am to G, and the "Am-G-F F G G", any help?

Am G F for it he doesn't play the full chord its more like he plucks e-a-d strings then switches helps alot with timing
