A bunch of you commented (some more nicely than others) that the D at the end of 
each phrase is actually a Bm, and you're all right!! Thanks for the help!

G                    D                              A
I've never known the loving of a man but it sure felt nice when he was 
 Bm
holding my hand
G                                D
There's a boy here in town says he'll love me forever

A penny for my thoughts

They're worth so much more after I'm a goner
G                                 D
And maybe then you'll hear the words I've been singing

good tab! chords are pretty good. except your missing either a C#m or Bm4 in there. I use the Bm4. And just an opinion, because im just really picky about this stuff, i hate it when people dont put chords on a whole section of words and say they are the same pattern as the chorus or something!!! no offense though! :)
