This is pretty close to the actual recording. I had to figure out the chords for the ending myself. Would have been easier for those of us learning on this if you had continued to provide the chords all the way through rather than letting us guess it out. What was confusing was how you had verses and choruses labeled. But i've got it correct in my cheat book so no worries. But good job and thanks!

The above chords are great for acoustic strumming. But for pick/strumming like the record, try these:
Bsus= X246XX 1-3-4
Dsus= X579XX Same as above
Asus= X02400

Em= XX14-12-12-12 Work pinky for extra notes
D= XX12-11-10-10 Same as above
