I really wanted to know how to play this song so I could cover it as I love it! someone 
out the chords for me so I thought I would post them here for you as they don't post on here.

She plays it in the key of E so there are a couple of barre chords: B & C#m If you 
to sing it in the key of G, you could transpose the chords so that there would be no barre chords.
E -> G
A -> C
B -> D
C#m -> Em

Intro E-A-E-A

[E] Long were the nights
When the days once revolved around [A] you
[E] Counting my footsteps,
Prayin’ the floor won’t fall [A] through, again
My [B] mother accused me of [C#m] losing my [B] mind
But I [A] swore I was fine

[E] You paint me a blue sky and go back
And turn it to [A] rain
And I [E] lived in your chess game
But you changed the rules every [A] day
[B] Wonderin which version of [C#m] you
I might [B] get on the [A] phone, tonight,
Well I [B] stopped pickin’ up
And this [C#m] song is to [B] let you know [A] why

Dear [E] John,
I see it all now that you’re [A] gone.
Don’t you think I was too [C#m] young
To be messed with
The [B] girl in the dress
Cried the [A] whole way home
I shoulda [E] known. [A]

Well [E] maybe it’s me
And my blind optimism to [A] blame
Maybe its [E] you and your sick need
To give love then take it [A] away
And [B] you’ll add my name
To your [C#m] long list of [B] traitors
Who [A] don’t understand
And I’ll look [B] back in regret
How I [C#m] ignored when they [B] said
Run as [A] fast as you can

Dear [E] John,
I see all it now that you’re [A] gone
Don’t you think I was too [C#m] young
To be messed with
The [B] girl in the dress
Cried the [A] whole way home

Dear [E] John,
I see it all now it was [A] wrong
Don’t you think nineteen’s too [C#m] young
To be played by your dark [B] twisted games
When I [A] loved you so
I shoulda [E] known [A]

You are an [C#m] expert at sorry
And [B] keeping lines blurry
And [A] never impressed by me
Acing your tests
All the [C#m] girls that you run dry
Have [B] tired lifeless eyes
Cuz you [A] burned them out
But [B] I took your matches
Before [C#m] fire could [B] catch me
So [A] don’t look now
I’m [B] shining like fireworks
[A] Over your sad empty [E] town [A]

Oh [C#m] woah [B] oh [A]

Dear [E] John,
I see all it now that you’re [A] gone
Don’t you think I was too [C#m] young
To be messed with the [B] girl in the dress
Cried the [A] whole way home
[E] I see all it now that you’re [A] gone
Don’t you think I was too [C#m] young
To be messed with
The [B] girl in the dress
Wrote [A] you a song
You should’ve [E] known
You shoulda [A] known
[E] Don’t you think I was too [A] young
You shoulda [E] known.

I play it with D,G A Bm and i thin occasionally with a Em in song, but on the other songs they have Asus2, it think it may be Asus4 though. BUt i also put the capo on 1. But this is right! 5*'s

That is very good! But I think it's actually C#m B A on the pre-chorus and the bridge instead of B C#m A. Otherwise you did really well! Keep it up!
