Chords by Theresa Davey, it should be about 98% right, let me know of any 
corrections i need to make.

No CAPO needed, although depending on your vocal range, you may find it easier to use one.

Japan and China were all lit up
A                          Em
the sign that I couldn't read
Em                           D
or the light that I couldn't see

somethings you have to believe
Em                                D

G            A                   Bm                    E
all those signs I knew what they meant something you can't invent

some get made and some get sent, ooo-oooh

quite accurate, but the Em in the verse should always be a G (for both Em's) Also the F#m in the verse should be a D the first time meaning G, Bm, D, G, G, Bm, F#m, G :)

I agree that the first F#m in the chorus should be a D, but I believe that the Em is correct. A G just sounds too bright. I believe the song to be in the key of D (not A) as it should resolve on D...one last chord which should be added. I think an Em7 could work there perhaps better...I play a standard Em but add a D on the 2nd string (022030).

While the E in the bridge would then not technically be in the key of D, the feel of that chord and that section is unlike the rest of the song.

As far as the strumming, I play DDUUDU.

Overall, nice job.
