The basics are correct! Very nice job!

The chords in the chorus, according to the AOL sessions video are simply
D A G Bm. And also, on the first chord on "I'm singing this one. . .", the electric is adding (from memory) the high E string open.

u need to alternate the intro so its 12,11,10 all at one but 12,11 and then 10 and the same with the next one
---10----10----10-
-11----11----11---
-12----12----12--- and then

-11----11----11---
-12----12----12---
---10----10----10-
