Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Played in standard tuning and you will have to listen to it to get the struming down.  
if you play around with the D chord a little bit I found it adds to the song.

[Intro]
D  -  G  -  D  -  D

[Verse 1]
D
Drivin’ through town just my boy and me
With a happy meal in his booster seat
Bb                                 C                          D
Knowin’ that he couldn’t have the toy ‘til his nuggets were gone.
D
A green traffic light turned straight to red
I hit my brakes and mumbled under my breath.
    Bb                            C                        D
His fries went a flyin’,  and his orange drink covered his lap
              G                  A
Well, then my 4 year old said a four letter word
    G/B         A     G
It started with S and I was concerned
     G              D/F#                  Em  D/F#          A
So I said, son, now where’d you learn to talk like that
 
[Chorus]
                     D
He said,  I’ve been watching you, dad ain’t that cool
         A
I’m your buckaroo, I want to be like you
        G                               A
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
       D
We got cowboy boots and camo pants
            A
Yeah, we’re just alike, hey, ain’t we dad
  G       A  G/B   A        G        A
I want to do everything you do
                      D
So I’ve been watching you

D  -  G

[Verse 2]
D
We got back home and I went to the barn
I bowed my head and I prayed real hard
Bb                         C              D
Said, lord, please help me help my stupid self
D
Just this side of bedtime later that night
Turnin’ on my son’s Scooby-doo nightlight
   Bb                        C               D
He crawled out of bed and he got down on his knees
          G                        A
He closed his little eyes,  folded his little hands
 G/B      A              G
Spoke to god like he was talkin’ to a friend
     G                D/F#                Em  D/F#          A
And I said, son, now where’d you learn to pray like that

[Chorus]
                   D
He said, I’ve been watching you, dad ain’t that cool
         A
I’m your buckaroo;  I want to be like you
        G                               A
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
         D
We like fixin’ things and holding momma’s hand
            A
Yeah, we’re just alike, hey,  ain’t we dad
   G      A   G/B   A       G        A
I want to do everything you do;
                      D
so I’ve been watching you

[Bridge]
     G                   A
With tears in my eyes I wrapped him in a hug
          G/B    A       G
Said, my little bear is growin’ up
G                 D/F#               Em        D/F#   G         A
And he said,  but when I’m big I’ll still know what to do

[Chorus]
                 D
‘cause I’ve been watching you,  dad ain’t that cool
         A
I’m your buckaroo’  I want to be like you
        G                               A
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
    D
By then I’ll be strong as superman
       A
We’ll be just alike, hey, won’t we dad
     G     A  G/B   A        G        A
When I can do everything you do
                            D
‘cause I’ve been watchin’ you

really good chords but i think you missed a G over the last word of each verse in between D/F# and A, and somethings not quite right in the bridge but i can't quite put my finger on it yet anyway well done

hey i figured out that bridge, i hope you don't think i'm being overly critical but the chord progression in the bridge should be C, G, D, C, G, Em, A
