There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The trick to this song is staying on top of the triplets when you're strumming. 
Some of the chords are “transitions” so listen for the changes.  On the C-Cadd9 
change, you just drop your pinky down right before the Em. 


[Verse 1]

G            C  Cadd9  Em       D        
I believe submarines
G            C  Cadd9  Em       D  
Underneath deep blue seas
G            C  Cadd9  Em       D  
Saw the flags: Japanese
G             C  Cadd9  Em       D  
No one will believe me

Em                     D 
Ran back to the town bar and
I told the people how
Em                      D
I had seen the submarine and
Everyone laughed aloud 

G    C  Cadd9  Em       D  
G    C  Cadd9  Em       D  

[Verse 2]

G    C  Cadd9  Em       D  
I did spy periscopes
G            C  Cadd9  Em       D
Dead of night on the eastern coast
G            C  Cadd9  Em       D
The police made them jokes
G            C  Cadd9  Em       D
Told me I'd seen a ghost

Everyone thinks I'm a liar
No one knows the truth
If it was a bigger fire
I would be on the roof


Ships will rust in Baldwin Bay
(Let me go!)
No one trusts what I say
(I don't know!)
Oh my God, no one paid
Overnight my hair turned gray
(Oh oh oh!)

In the end it boils down to credibility
I had none, so I will die with the secrets of the sea

(Submarine! Can't find me! Submarine!)

on the Cadd9 you just add your pinky to second string from bottom

The walk from C - Cadd9 - Em is close but the Em sounds a lot better as a G.

Sounds like it is a G instead of Em for the first two verse and then the third verse is Em until after the "(Submarine! Can't find me! Submarine!)" and then back to G.
