strumming isn't an exact science. you don't have to know the exact up down pattern to every song you play.

you should keep your arm moving to every beat down up down up wether or not theres a note to play. Maybe that will help you figure out which notes are up. But i suggest to find a live youtube video of the song. Usually you can tell if its a upstrum , it will be a high note to low note strum.
