Here you go have fun!!!
Song is mostly down stroke – strum where indicated.  I will check in a
couple of days to make sure my format is in line.

Is this the new year or just another night.

This the new tear or just another desperation

Note:   the second time I play this after desperation then back to verse
D ------------12--|

Is this what they call freedom
Is this what they call pain
Is this what they call discontented fame
It’ll be a day like this one when the world caves in

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.
