Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
In spite of its five star rating the other version has some errors, so I have tried to fix them.

To emulate the Rhodes piano in the chorus try alternating the major triads with:

   C* D* G*
e|-0--3--3-|
B|-3--3--1-|
G|-0--2--0-|
D|-2--0--0-|
A|-3--x--2-|
E|-x--x--3-|

Capo on the second fret.


[Verse 1]

               G
        Well I woke up Sunday morning
                C                                G
        with no way to hold my head, that didn't hurt

        and the beer I had for breakfast
               Em                           D
        wasn't bad so I had one more for dessert


[Verse 2]

               G
        Than I fumble through my closet for
           C                                   G     G/F# Em
        my clothes and found my cleanest dirty shirt
              C                  Am
        and I shaved my face and combed my hair
            C                 D                  G
        and stumbled down the stairs to meet the day


[Verse 3]

               G
        I'd smoked my brain the night before
             C                                  G
        and cigarettes and songs that I've been pickin'
                                       Em
        but I lit my first and watched a small kid
                                     D
        cussin' at a can that he was kicking


[Verse 4]

               G
        Then I crossed the empty street and caught
            C                              G
        the sunday smell of someone fryin' chicken
               C               Am
        and it took me back to somethin' that
            C            D                   G
        I'd lost somehow somewhere along the way


[Chorus]

                                  C
        On the Sunday mornin' sidewalks
                                G
        wishing Lord that I was stoned
                                       D
        'cause there is something in a Sunday
                               G
        that makes a body feel alone

                                     C
        And there's nothin' short of dyin'
                                G
        half as lonesome as the sound
                             D
        on the sleepin' city sidewalks
                              G
        Sunday mornin' comin' down


[Verse 5]

               G
        In the park I saw a daddy with
          C                               G
        a laughing little girl who he was swingin'
                        
        and I stopped beside a sunday school
            Em                                  D
        and listened to the song that they were singin'


[Verse 6]

               G
        Then I headed back for home and
                  C                          G       G/F# Em
        somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringin'
               C               Am
        and it echoed thru the canyon like
            C            D               G
        the disappearing dreams of yesterday.


[Chorus]

                                  C
        On the Sunday mornin' sidewalks
                                G
        wishing Lord that I was stoned
                                       D
        'cause there is something in a Sunday
                               G
        that makes a body feel alone

                                     C
        And there's nothin' short of dyin'
                                G
        half as lonesome as the sound
                             D
        on the sleepin' city sidewalks
                              G
        Sunday mornin' comin' down


Repeat the chords for the chorus while singing "doo doo doo..." and fade out.

No capo to match the Me First and the Gimme Gimmes Cover

Almost correct. Four stars. But could you maybe listen again to what you refer to as verse 2, and correct the chords, it should end on the D chord (if you play in the key of G). Most people get it wrong that that ending is different from the other one.
But everybody taking the time to transcript this song deserves credits :)
