It's called "busking" and it's very popular where I live. Over here you need a licence for it, which is free but you need to have a photo ID to get it.

I play it as

with the middle finger on the 5th string, index on 4th, ring on 3rd string and pinky on 2nd string. This fingering is good since it's similar to how I play E7b9 (x7676x) and E7#9 (x7678x).

Cold beer is my drink of choice.
It just agrees with me.
I lose control drinking the hard stuff

Cold beer is my drink of choice.

I like the taste, I like the buzz,
And I really like to pee.

Another thought: As a small exercise, make up a chord progression with any random chords - it doesn't really matter what chords, just make sure you take note of them (write them down for instance).

You could just noodle around in C major, but...
