There are some other covers here, but they don't sound right. Mine might not sound right 
either, but it works for me.

"Best I Ever Had"

|--------------|---------------|


Am         F
Now I know I messed up bad
C            G
You were the best I ever had
Am         F
I let you down in the worst way
C           G
It hurts me every single day
Am     F (let it ring)
I'm dying to let you know

Chorus:
C                       G
Now I'm here to say I'm sorry
                      Am
And ask for a second chance
                                    F
Cause when it all comes down to the end
                       Am
I could sure use a friend

Am/F/Am/F (hammer-on the fifth fret 
G-String [haha])

Am       F
So many things I would take back
C            G
You were the best I ever had
Am            F
I don't blame you for hating me
C        G                           Am/F
I didn't mean to make you leave

(You can play this next part 2 ways)

V1:

C                  G
I want you back, I want you

C                       G

And ask for a second chance
                                    F
Cause when it all comes down to the end
                       Am
I could sure use a friend
C                       G
Now I'm here to say I'm sorry
                     Am
And ask for a second chance
                                    F
Cause when it all comes down to the end
                         Am
You were the best I ever had

(Again there's 2 ways to play this next part.)

Am                   F
So many things we believed in
           C           G
Now you're leaving and words won't bring you back
Am             G                 F
I'll never let go of the heart I broke

                         Am (Or C)
You were the best I ever had

(Okay so you can play the ending 2 ways that didn't sound too bad for me the optional 
chord you can place in use will be in brackets.)

Am (C)
I can't believe that I threw away all our dreams
F (G)
I can't believe now that you're gone how much you mean to me
C (Am)
I feel so bad, I feel so bad
G (F)
You were the best I ever had
Am (C)
I can't believe that I threw away all our dreams
F (G)
I can't believe now that you're gone how much you mean to me
C (Am)
I feel so bad, I feel so bad
G (F)
You were,
                          Am (C)
You were the best I ever had

Not sure why this was originally given a low rating.

BY FAR the best one on here, and the easiest arrangement to play (with the capo on 1)

Not quite perfect, but definitely workable. It'll do.

In the chorus, I don't think there's an Am in the first part - I hear just the F (C - G - F - F)

The end of the chorus sounds like a Bb (kinda)at the very end (Am\F\Am\Bb) same as the end of the V1 you mentioned.

I'd also stick with one version - you have V1 and V2 a few places - only one is correct when you play along with the song. I'd remove the others.

Other than that - Fantastic work :)
Keep it up.
