Who would've thought that
                         *RIFF 1, D, RIFF 2
You'd fall for his line
D
All of a sudden
                      *RIFF 1, D, RIFF 2
It's me on the outside

the instrumental part is actually A E A E B, the last E and the B each take up one measure, the rest of the chords taking 2 measures each. if that makes any snse at all. other than that, good job

Should be Em instead of E

I agree with the above comment. To my ear it sounds like Em to D.
