Life         goes on day after day.
D        Am    D         Am     D     Am  D  Am
Hearts         torn in  every  way.

And here I'll stay.

Verse 2
D     Am     D            Am        D        Am  D  Am
Peo   --    ple     they rush everywhere.
D      Am     D          Am         D     Am  D  Am
Each         with their own secret care.
   D                F#m
So ferry across the Mersey,
    Em              A                 D
and always take me there, the place I love.

CHORUS:
Em      A           D
People around every corner.
Em           A         D
They seem to smile and say..
Em        A               F#m
'We don't care what your name is boy,
E7                    A
we'll never turn you away.'

And here I'll stay       and  here I'll  stay

Looks to me like none of them are accurate if you compare it to Tab Pro and how accurate that sounds. Just a thought not trying to criticize anyone.

Actually Tab Pro isn't always accurate when dealing with chords.
