This is what 'McPhan86' plays in his "When You Were Young" cover. When he changes from G 
he does a walk down G G/B C9 and all the D's are Dsus / Dsus4. This is very easy to play.
The strumming is quite hard to do but keep at it, and good luck !

Capo is meant to be on 4th, but 'McPhan86' plays it on 2nd and its easier to sing and 
nice, take your pick.

Chords, the 'x' means to mute, to give it that base note. Hope this helps.

On the back of a hurricane

And sometimes you close your eyes
              G                      C9
And see the place where you used to live
               D   Em7    G     C9
When you were    young

Every once in a little while

You play forgiveness

Watch it now Here he comes

Like you imagined
