"Take the very breath you gave me, take the heart from my chest.

Take me out of this world, God, please, don't take the girl.

Hey, you're pretty close on this but if I could make a couple suggestions.

First try using a "D" chord in place of the "Bm" on the verses, followed by the "C" chord. Example:
D C
His dad looked down and smiled,
D C
Said, "We can't leave her behind
Am G
Son I know you don't want her to go
C D
Someday you'll change your mind."

Also, you should put the chords directly above the words or places that the chord changes. It makes it much easier to read. Example:

G Am D
Take any boy in the world -- Daddy, please
G
Don't take the girl.

Not bad for a first attempt though.

Oops, that's not how I originally posted it. The chords should be as follows...
D - over "His", C - over "down", D - over "Said", C - over "behind", Am - over "Son", G - over "want", C - over "Someday", D - over "mind"

G - over "Take", Am - over "world", D - over "please", G - over "girl"
