I think this is a really fun song and have been looking for the tab everywhere, finally 
down and figured it out myself.  It may need some tweeking but it is very very close.  
it works out for everyone.
****************************************************************************
Played in standard tuning and you will have to listen to it to get the struming down.  
if you play around with the D chord a little bit I found it adds to the song.

INTRO:
D  -  G  -  D  -  D

VERSE I:
D
Drivin’ through town just my boy and me
With a happy meal in his booster seat
Bb                                 C                          D
Knowin’ that he couldn’t have the toy ‘til his nuggets were gone.
D
A green traffic light turned straight to red
I hit my brakes and mumbled under my breath.
    Bb                            C                        D
His fries went a flyin’,  and his orange drink covered his lap
              G                  A
Well, then my 4 year old said a four letter word
    G/B         A     G
It started with S and I was concerned
     G              D/F#                  Em  D/F#  
        A
So I said, son, now where’d you learn to talk like that


CHORUS:
                     D
He said,  I’ve been watching you, dad ain’t that cool
         A
I’m your buckaroo, I want to be like you
        G                               A
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
       D
We got cowboy boots and camo pants
            A
Yeah, we’re just alike, hey, ain’t we dad
  G       A  G/B   A        G        A
I want to do everything you do
                      D
So I’ve been watching you

D  -  G

VERSE II:
D
We got back home and I went to the barn
I bowed my head and I prayed real hard
Bb                         C              D
Said, lord, please help me help my stupid self
D
Just this side of bedtime later that night
Turnin’ on my son’s Scooby-doo nightlight
   Bb                        C               D
He crawled out of bed and he got down on his knees
          G                        A
He closed his little eyes,  folded his little hands
 G/B      A              G
Spoke to god like he was talkin’ to a friend
     G                D/F#                Em  D/F#  
        A
And I said, son, now where’d you learn to pray like that

CHORUS:
                   D
He said, I’ve been watching you, dad ain’t that cool
         A
I’m your buckaroo;  I want to be like you
        G                               A
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
         D
We like fixin’ things and holding momma’s hand
            A
Yeah, we’re just alike, hey,  ain’t we dad
   G      A   G/B   A       G        A
I want to do everything you do;
                      D
so I’ve been watching you


     G                   A
With tears in my eyes I wrapped him in a hug
          G/B    A       G
Said, my little bear is growin’ up
G                 D/F#               Em        D/F#  
 G         A
And he said,  but when I’m big I’ll still know what to do

CHORUS:
                 D
‘cause I’ve been watching you,  dad ain’t that cool
         A
I’m your buckaroo’  I want to be like you
        G                               A
And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are
    D
By then I’ll be strong as superman
       A
We’ll be just alike, hey, won’t we dad
     G     A  G/B   A        G        A
When I can do everything you do
                            D
‘cause I’ve been watchin’ you
