-That's all there is to it. Pretty easy song to play. The other chords were a bit
mixed up. I admit I don't know the names of all of them, but I do know how to play
them, so if you look at the little chord index I put in, this should should 100% correct.-

The A's in the the little bridge are supposed to labeled A#. Sorry about that.

Ok, you have the right chords, just the wrong chord names! Your Am2 is actually Am/G, the D/G should be Dsus2/F#. Very good ear though, you should check out some theory, you could be quite good.
