Listen for strumming pattern.
Sounds like twice on the bass strings then the rest.
Have included the bass line as well because I think it adds a lot to the
song.

[Verse 1]

D                    G
I.... I wish I could swim,
         D                             G
Like the dolphins.... like dolpins can swim,
AM7               G                     D        (Electric guitar enters)
Though nothing.... nothing will keep us together,
AM7                  G           D
We can beat them.... forever and ever,
             AM7       G             D
Oh we can be heroes.... just for one day,

chords x 2


[Verse 2]

D               G
I.... I will be King,
    D                   G
And you.... you will be Queen,
       AM7        G                D
Though nothing.... will drive them away,


[Chorus 1]

          AM7      G              D
We can be heroes.... just for one day,
   AM7          G             D
We can be us.... just for one day,


[Verse 2]

D           G
I.... I can remember,
D               G
Standing.... by walls,
        D             G
And the guns.... shot above our heads,
       D                      G
And we kissed.... saw nothing before,
        AM7      G           D
And the shame.... was on the other side,


[Chorus 2]

          AM7          G            D
Oh we can beat them.... forever and ever,
               AM7       G             D
Then we can be heroes.... just for one day,


[Outro]

D         G       D
We can be heroes
          G       D
We can be heroes
          G       
We can be heroes
             D
Just for one day.

Your "AM7" is actually Am7.

i could be wrong but it sounds like the Am7 during the verse may actually be a C. it sounds right in the chorus though
