The song basically alternates between two chords 

      C/G         F

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

[The strumming pattern gets a little different during the bridge, 
but it's the same chords.  The thing that spices it up is the 
dynamics from the verse to chords (soft to loud) and the 
lead guitar that dances around the melodies]

(Lyrics)

Bless my heart, Bless my soul
Didn't think I'd make it to 22 years old
There must be someone up above
sayin' Come on Brittney, You got to come on up

You've got to hold on
Yeah you've got to hold on

So bless my heart and bless yours too
I don't know where I'm gonna go
Don't know what I'm gonna do
Well, must be somebody up above 
sayin' Come on Brittney, You've got to come on up

You've got to hold on
Yeah you've got to hold on

Yeah you've got to wait
you've got to wait
But I don't wanna wait
Don't wanna wait

So bless my heart, bless my mind
I got so much to do, I aint got much time
Well, must be somebody up above 
sayin' Come on girl, You've got to get back up

You've got to hold on
Yeah you've got to hold on

Yeah you've got to wait
you've got to wait
But I don't wanna wait
Don't wanna wait
