Now I know I'm going to get some smart arse
commenting on mistakes but this is for beginners.
I have simplified all the guitar parts but they 
work well enough.

You promised me everything    you promised me thick and thin

I cant do the talk  like they talk on tv
F                        Dm                 Bb
And I cant do a love song  like the way its meant to be
C                    Bb      C               F
I cant do everything but I'd do anything for you
Bb                           C
I cant do anything except be in love with you

F                       Dm                        C
And all I do is miss you  and the way we used to be

All do is keep the beat  and bad company
C                    Bb C                     F
All I do is kiss you    through the bars of a rhyme
Bb                              C
Julie I'd do the stars with you any time

    F C              Dm               Bb
Juliet  when we made love you used to cry
           F                 C                Dm              Bb
You said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die

Theres a place for us    you know the movie song
Gm                     F      Bb                 C   Dm    C F
When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong Juliet ? 

F                     Dm                         C
And a lovestruck Romeo  sings a streetsus serenade
F                   Dm                   Bb
Laying everybody low  with me a lovesong that he made

I think I agree that you it is alternate tuning like you said, but you picking part is really kinda far off. Good job figuring the capo and tuning thing
