Words of Love - Buddy Holly 

All that is done for the first part is picking each string during the chord. Something like:

    A              D           E        3X
----------------0-0---2----------0---------|
----2--2--2--2--0-0------3---------0-------|
----2--2--2--2--------------2--------1-----|
----2--2--2--2-------------------------2---|
-------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------|

Then this part I don't know the chords but its:

                    D            E
--0----0---0---0-0-0----2----------0-----------|
--10---5---2---5-0-0------3----------0---------|
----------------------------2----------1-------|
-----------------------------------------2-----|
-----------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------|

A                 D
Hold me close and
 E             A       D
Tell me how you feel
 E             A       D
Tell me love is real
 E          A  D  E
Mmm mmm mmm, mmm  mmm

Words of love you
Whisper soft and true
Darling, I love you
Mmm mmm mmm, mmm mmm

and you just play A-D-E for the whole song except for
the little interlude part, which is just:

                                      X3
--0----0---0---0---0----0--0--0----------------|
--10---5---2---5---3----7--5--9----------------|
-----------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------|

then (this part is somewhat awkward and could be wrong
but it sounds good):

                       D         E
--0---0---0--0---0--0----2--------0-----------|
--10--10--5--10--5--0------3--------0---------|
-----------------------------2--------1-------|
----------------------------------------2-----|
----------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------|

you could try playing it like this if it works better for you:


                       D         E
--0---0------0------0----2--------0-----------|
--10--10-----10-----0------3--------0---------|
----------9------9-----------2--------1-------|
----------------------------------------2-----|
----------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------|

A               D 
Let me hear you say
    E              A      D
The words I want to hear
 E              A         D
Darling, when you're near
 E          A  D  E
Mmm mmm mmm, mmm  mmm

Words of love you
Whisper soft and true
Darling, I love you
Mmm mmm mmm, mmm mmm
Mmm mmm

And that is pretty much it. Hope you have as much fun
playing it as I do!
