Chords:

C/G:  332010
F:    133211
Em:   022000
G:    355433

Notes on strumming:

There are lots of hammer-ons and pull-offs in this song.  In general:

When he plays the C/G chord, he does the hammer-ons and pull-offs with the open D string 
the E note on the second fret.

When he plays the F chord, he does the hammer-ons and pull-offs with the open G string 
the A note on the second fret.

During the verse, right before you change from the F chord back to the C/G, he does a 
pull-off with the F chord like it's described above.

If you want to keep the F bass note on that F chord, you could play it with your thumb 
I like to do to keep a nice, full sound [plus it's cool to play with your thumb 
 So it goes like this:

C/G chord hammer-on:

E|--0-0-----|B|--1-1-----|G|--0-0-----|D|--0h2-----|A|--3-3-----|E|--3-3-----|
C/G chord pull-off:
E|--0-0-----|B|--1-1-----|G|--0-0-----|D|--2p0-----|A|--3-3-----|E|--3-3-----|
F chord hammer-on:
E|--1-1-----|B|--1-1-----|G|--0h2-----|D|--3-3-----|A|--3-3-----|E|--1-1-----|
F chord pull-off:
E|--1-1-----|B|--1-1-----|G|--2p0-----|D|--3-3-----|A|--3-3-----|E|--1-1-----|
I tried to get the chord placements right with the lyrics, but they might be off a bit, you know how it goes...
