I am familiar with the American Breed version of this song- great job!

Wrong key. American Breed chords in the intro are C Eb F Bb and repeat through the verse to Am to G to F to E (5 for key of A). The chorus is A D G A. You might want to check the lyrics again too. They are also incorrect on the segue to the chorus.
