Capo on Fret 2

G          320033
Dsus4/F#   200233
Em         022002
C          x32013 or x32033  they both work, but I feel one works better than the 
other in certain places. Try for yourself.

[Verse 1]

G
She's all layed up in bed with a broken heart
Dsus4/F#
While i'm drinking Jack all alone in my local bar, and we don't know how
Em
How we got into this mad situation, only doing things out of frustration
C
Trying to make it work, but man these times are hard

G
She needs me now but I can’t seem to find the time
Dsus4/F#
I got a new job now on the unemployment line, and we don't know how
Em
How we got into this mess is it god's test?, Someone help us ‘cos we’re doing our best
C
Trying to make it work but man these times are hard

[Chorus]

                         Em
But we’re gonna start by drinking old cheap bottles of wine
C
Sit talking up all night,
G
Saying things we haven’t for a while
Dsus4/F#
A while yeah

        Em
You’re smiling but we’re close to tears,
C
Even after all these years
G
We just now got the feeling that we’re meeting
Dsus4/F#
For the first time

[Post-Chorus]

G
Ooooooooooh
Dsus4/F#
Ooooooooooh
Em
Ooooooooooh
C
Ooooooooooh

[Verse 2]

G
She’s in line at the door with her head held high
Dsus4/F#
Well I just lost my job, I didn’t lose my pride, and we both know how
Em
How we’re gonna make it work when it hurts, when you pick up yourself up you get 
kicked to the dirt
C
Trying to make it work, but man these times are hard

[Chorus]

                        Em
But we’re gonna start by drinking old cheap bottles of wine
C
Sit talking up all night,
G,
Doin’ things we haven’t for a while
Dsus4/F#
A while yeah

     Em
You’re smiling but we’re close to tears,
C
Even after all these years
G
We just now got the feeling that we’re meeting
Dsus4/F#
For the first time

[Post-Chorus]

G
Ooooooooooh
Dsus4/F#
Ooooooooooh
Em
Ooooooooooh
C
Ooooooooooh

[Chorus]

Em
Yeah,  drinking old cheap bottles of wine
C
Sit talking up all night,
G
Saying things we haven’t for a while
D
A while yeah

Em
We’re smiling but we’re close to tears,
C
Even after all these years
G
We just now got the feeling that we’re meeting
Dsus4/F#
For the first time

[Bridge]

G
Ooooooooooh
Yeah, for the first time
Dsus4/F#
Ooooooooooh
Oh, for the first time
Em
Ooooooooooh
Yeah, for the first time
C
(We just now got the feeling that we’re meeting
For the first time)

[Outro]

G                                          Dsus4/F#
Oh these times are hard, end up making us crazy
Don’t give up on me baby 
Em                                        C
Oh these times are hard, end up making us crazy
Don’t give up on me baby

G                                          Dsus4/F#
Oh these times are hard, end up making us crazy
Don’t give up on me baby 
Em                                        C
Oh these times are hard, end up making us crazy
Don’t give up on me baby

For Dsus4, the piano at least plays Em/F# (sounding pitch: F#m/G#). For Em, I would play Em9 (sounding F#m9). And add9 for C as usual. :)
