Strumming

First submission so be nice,
Here is my improvement on busrday's tab for this song. I notices a few things while playing through it.
When changing from C to G there is very often a Dsus2 in there that is missed out,
the intro can simply be played as:
             Dsus2
   C         ^ G
e--x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--
b--1-1-1-1-1-3-0-0-0-0--
g--0-0-0-0-0-2-0-0-0-0--
d--2-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-0--
a--3-3-3-3-3-x-2-2-2-2--
e--x-x-x-x-x-x-3-3-3-3--

Dsus2 can be lazily played as:
e--x--       
b--3--         ...though admittedly this doesn't sound as good as 
g--0--         Dsus2, but it's far easier to play at speed, enjoy.
d--0--
a--x--
e--x--

[Intro]

G
A dreaded sunny day
                                C
So I meet you at the cemetery gates
            D           Em       D   C Dsus2
Keats and Yeats are on your side
G
A dreaded sunny day
                                C
So I meet you at the cemetery gates
            D           Em       D   C D C
Keats and Yeats are on your side
        D          G
While Wilde is on mine

G                                         C
So we go inside and we gravely read the stones
                             D
All those people all those lives
              Em D C Dsus2
Where are they now?
       G
With loves, with hates
                        C
And passions just like mine

They were born
                D
And then they lived
             Em D C D C
And then they died

Which seems so unfair
D              G
And I want to cry

               Bm
You say: "ere thrice the sun hath door
                   G
Salutation to the dawn"
         Bm                        G
And you claim these words as your own
     C                   D
But I'm well read, have heard them said
           Em                       C
A hundred times (maybe less, maybe more)

       G
If you must write prose and poems
                                  C
The words you use should be your own
                     D     Em D C Dsus2
Don't plagiarise or take on loan
                  G
There's always someone, somewhere
                       C
With a big nose, who knows
                           D
And who trips you up and laughs
        Em D C D C
When you fall
                         D
Who'll trip you up and laugh
          G
When you fall

               Bm                G
You say: "ere long done do does did"
 Bm                             G
Words which could only be your own
     C
You then produce the text
       D
From whence was ripped
             Em        C
(some dizzy whore, 1804)

            G
A dreaded sunny day

So let's go where we're happy
                                C
And I meet you at the cemetery gates
            D           Em       D C Dsus2
Keats and Yeats are on your side
            G
A dreaded sunny day

So let's go where we're wanted
                                 C
And I meet you at the cemetery gates
            D           Em       D C    D  C
Keats and Yeats are on your side - but you lose
        D          G  C  G
While Wilde is on mine

[Outro]
C   Dsus2 G
C   Dsus2 G
