Children of Jack - Guy Forsyth

This is my first post - appreciate any constructive feedbck.
I think Guy plays this on Capo 2, but this reflects the absolute chords.
The bulk of the song is simply a G-D/F#-Em-C, and the chorus breaks out with C-C-G-Em-D/F#-G-D/F#.

The fingerpicking pattern goes like this:
  G                 D/F#           Em7            D/F#
|----3---3---3----|----3---3---3-|----3---3---3-|----3---3---3-|
|----3---3---3----|----3---3---3-|----3---3---3-|----3---3---3-|

Intro:
G D/F# Em7C
G D/F# Em7C

G             D/F#    Em7       C
At night when I’m out riding
G         D/F#     Em7       C
Along the dark highway
G       D/F#       Em7       C
I get a feeling inside me
G                 D/F#     Em7      C
To throw all that I have away.

G                  D/F#   Em7       C
And I'll leave all this behind me
          G          D/F#       Em7       C
Like that job that I had in the day
        G              D/F#         Em7        C
All the black dressing soul testing lovers and liars
        G                D/F#    Em7       C
And the speeding tickets I never pay

(Interlude, mostly just strumming these chords:)
C  C  G  D/F# Em7 D/F#  G  D/F#


G        D/F#     Em7           C
Do you believe in love at first sight
     G         D/F#   Em7       C
As a matter of fact I do
G     D/F#        Em7     C
Every time that I open my eyes
G    D/F#         Em7       C
That saying comes true

      G     D/F#       Em7         C
Cause I see you in the laundromat
G           D/F#             Em7     C
Black Irish washerwoman in a funeral hat
G            D/F#       Em7     C
Italian ballerina on an asphalt stage 
G            D/F#          Em7   C
Bleach blond born of a Victorian age


Chorus:
C         G           D/F#        Em7   D/F#   G  D/F#
America - where goest thou in thy shiny car at night
G           D/F#           Em7        C
Children of Jack - we will never turn back 
   G       D/F#        G
as we ride away in the light.

-Solo goes here-
|: G D/F# Em7C  :| x3
G D/F# G

       G      D/F#           Em7    C
And if I were to take you by force
    G     D/F#Em     C
And carry you away
G    D/F#       Em7    C   
     Back to my bedroom
G        D/F#     Em7     C
Just for music to play

        G            D/F#            Em7        C
And I'd play you the songs that I've written
        G           D/F#          Em7     C
And the ones that I can't seem to write
G           D/F#             Em7         C
Maybe you'd know what you're missing
G           D/F#          Em7       C
Maybe you'd stay past the night

Chorus:
C         G           D/F#        Em7   D/F#   G  D/F#
America - where goest thou in thy shiny car at night
G           D/F#           Em7        C
Children of Jack - we will never turn back 
   G       D/F#        G
as we ride away in the light.


   G         D/F#             Em7        C
My father he built me this backpack
        G           D/F#       Em7        C
Just an inch or two big for real
     G          D/F#           Em7        C
I'll pack my guitar and the smoke from this bar
   G             D/F#   Em7     C
My songs and one hot meal

         G           D/F#            Em7          C
And I'll ride to the west chasing sunsets like gold
    G          D/F#           Em7    C
At dawn I will ride to the east
     G            D/F#                 Em7         C  
I'll find all the friends that I've lost on the road
      G         D/F#            Em7         C
Maybe then I'll know me some peace


Chorus:
C         G           D/F#        Em7   D/F#   G  D/F#
America - where goest thou in thy shiny car at night
G           D/F#           Em7        C
Children of Jack - we will never turn back 
   G       D/F#        G
as we ride away in the light.


        G       D/F#            Em7        C
There's so much more to this wonderful world
     G      D/F#        Em7        C
Then we are sold on TV
    G         D/F#            Em7    C
So tell me if you are not already dead
     G               D/F#            Em7        C
That you'll come and live it with me

           G       D/F#             Em7       C
Leave your college plans to your one-night stands
     G         D/F#              Em7        C
Your business clothes and the rest
        G           D/F#           Em7            C
There's pleasure enough in your heart and your hands
G          D/F#        Em7        C
Blue jeans suit you best


Chorus:
C         G           D/F#        Em7   D/F#   G  D/F#
America - where goest thou in thy shiny car at night
G           D/F#           Em7        C
Children of Jack - we will never turn back 
   G       D/F#        G
as we ride away in the light.




G           D/F#           Em7        C
Children of Jack - we will never turn back 
   G       D/F#        G
as we ride away in the light.
