Good job. It is correct with the actual song.

on the chorus, instead of playing:
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------|
D|---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9-----------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
D|-5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5-------------|
which is really hard to reach, you can play:
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------|
G|---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4-----------|
D|-------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
D|-5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5-------------|

the same on the other things that are played in the chorus, so basically like this:
Chorus
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------|
D|---4---4---4---4---4---2---0---0-----------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
D|-0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0-------------|
No I'm not alright

NOTE: for this part I don't switch the notes at
the end, I just play the 6 and 7 the whole way.
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------|
G|---6----6----6----6----6----6---6---6------|
D|-------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
D|-7----7----7----7----7----7---7---7--------|
I know that I'm not right

e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------|
G|---7----7----7----7----7----7----7----7----|
D|-------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
D|-9----9----9----9----9----9----9----9------|
A steering wheel don't mean you can drive

NOTE: Here is the same as the 7 and 6, I don't play
the end notes I just keep playing 4 and 5
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------|
G|---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4-----------|
D|-------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------|
D|-5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5-------------|
A warm body don't mean I'm alive

You can use this pattern for anywhere else in the song I'm pretty sure, I do change the song a little but it still sounds good and you really can't tell that much anyway.
