ok, so if you follow along to this video on youtube 
its pretty easy to get the hang of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFkgWu4L2Z4  
so cudos to brianearlhaines.  this is exactly! how 
kenny chesney plays it on the CMA awards as 
far as i can tell.  if i miss something make sure to tell me!

Capo 8th fret
(Relative to Capo)
this is the main picking throughout the song

E-3-----3-------------------------------------------
B-------------4------4------5------5----4------4----
G----0-0---------0-0-----------0-0---------0-0------
D---------------------------------------------------
A-------------2---2---------3---3-------3---3-------
E-3---3---------------------------------------------


So damn easy to say that life's so hard
Everybody's got their share of battle scars
As for me I'd like to thank my lucky stars that
I'm alive and well

It'd be easy to add up all the pain
And all the dreams you've sat and watch go up in flames
Dwell on the wreckage as it smolders in the rain
But not me... I'm alive

during the next three lines you do this pattern...
E-------------------------------------------------------
B--5-----5-----4-----4-----3-----3------2----2----------
G-----0-0---------0-0---------0-0---------2-2-----------
D--2---2-------1---1-------0---0--------2--2------------
A-------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------

And today you know that's good enough for me
Breathing in and out's a blessing can't you see
Today's the first day of the rest of my life

resume this pattern...
E-3-----3-------------------------------------------
B-------------4------4------5------5----4------4----
G----0-0---------0-0-----------0-0---------0-0------   
D---------------------------------------------------
A-------------2---2---------3---3-------3---3-------
E-3---3---------------------------------------------

And I'm alive and well
I'm alive and well

(i skipped the musical interlude part....couldn't figure it out)

E-3-----3-------------------------------------------
B-------------4------4------5------5----4------4----
G----0-0---------0-0-----------0-0---------0-0------   
D---------------------------------------------------
A-------------2---2---------3---3-------3---3-------
E-3---3---------------------------------------------

Stars are dancin' on the water here tonight
It's good for the soul when there's not a soul in sight
This motor's caught its wind and brought me back to life
Now I'm alive and well

E-------------------------------------------------------
B--5-----5-----4-----4-----3-----3------2----2----------
G-----0-0---------0-0---------0-0---------2-2-----------
D--2---2-------1---1-------0---0--------2--2------------
A-------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------


And today you know that's good enough for me
Breathing in and out's a blessing can't you see
Today's the first day of the rest of my life

E-3-----3-------------------------------------------
B-------------4------4------5------5----4------4----
G----0-0---------0-0-----------0-0---------0-0------   
D---------------------------------------------------
A-------------2---2---------3---3-------3---3-------
E-3---3---------------------------------------------

Now I'm alive and well
Yeah I'm alive and well

i didn't figure out the ending either, it'd be great for someone to fill that in for me!!
