This is my first tab and its pretty damn accurate.
Those who say it should be Dm instead of D aren't wrong.
Personally, I just think Acoustically, it sounds better with D, but, to each their own!

Here's how I play it.

Chorus

If I could write you a song,

To make you fall in love,

I would already have you up under my arm.
          Eb      D

The D chord (x,5,7,7,7,5) in the instrumental breaks should actually be an F chord (x,8,10,10,10,8). I just noticed this mistake... My bad guys...

if they think Dm instead of D, they can't play barre chords. D is the way to go. Great tab.
