Key of D 
4/4 time
(I–vi–iv–V) Doo-Wop
D Major (bass Line)

There are two guitars being played.
One is an acoustic which is just playing only the chords.
The other is an electric playing what I have tabbed out.

It may be difficult to play just by reading where the chords are place according to the lyrics.
so don't worry about the placement. just play in strict 4/4 time, and you will be fine.
