Coconut Skins

I know I probably have this all wrong but I think it sounds pretty decent. 
I hope it's easier for some of the beginners, I think everyone should enjoy
this song and it's easy to play! Please leave a good rating! Thanks!

[Intro] G/E, G/F#, Em      G/E, G/F#, G  (x2)


[Verse]

G          G/F#      Em           G/E      G/F#    G
   You can hold  her hand     and show her how you cry 
  G        G/F#    Em                                     G/E    G/F#   G   
Explain to her your weakness so she understands  and then roll over and die
     G      G/F#     Em                       G/E     G/F#   G
Well you can brave decisions       before you crumble up   inside 
           G      G/F#  Em                                  G/E  G/F#    G   
Spend your time  asking everyone else's permission and then run away and hide


[Chorus]

G       G/F#   Em                     G/E   G/F#   G    
You can sit on chimneys      put some fire up your ass
           G     G/F#        Em                              G/E  G/F#  G
No need to know  what you're doing or waiting for     but if any  one  should ask?
          G         G/F#    Em                     G/E   G/F#    G
Tell them I've been licking coconut skins      and we've been hanging out
          G        G/F#    Em                               G/E   G/F#  G
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins    and relieve  us   our doubt


[Bridge] G, G/F#, Em     G/E, G/F#, G (X2)


[Verse]

G       G/F#     Em                  G/E    G/F#   G 
You can hold her eggs       But your basket has a hole 
        G      G/F#    Em
You can lie between her legs And go lookin' for: 
                G         G/F#   G
Tell her you're searching for    her soul! 
G      G/F#      Em                         G/E    G/F#   G
You can wait for ages        and watch your compost turn   to coal 
   G     G/F#  Em                   G/E    G/F#    G
But time is contagious:        Everybody's getting old. 

G       G/F#   Em                     G/E   G/F#   G    
You can sit on chimneys      put some fire up your ass
           G     G/F#        Em                              G/E  G/F#  G
No need to know  what you're doing or looking for     but if any  one  should ask?
          G         G/F#    Em                     G/E   G/F#    G
Tell them I've been cooking coconut skins      and we've been hanging out
          G        G/F#    Em                              G/E   G/F#  G
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins    and relieve  us  our doubt

Overall I think you did a good job here but it seems to me that the song starts with the G and I think when your playing Em you pull the finger on the D string second fret on and off. If you listen to the song you can hear a slight variation in the sound. Well I hope I added something worth while. Once again good job on it and thanks.
