[Verse 1]

Dmin                  A7                           Dmin
Where are those happy times - they seem so hard to find.
Dmin               A7                           Dmin
I try to reach for you but you have closed your mind.
F                 C   
Whatever happened to our love ?
Gmin          Dmin  
I wish I understood.
Dmin             A7                     Dmin
It used to be so nice, it used to be so good.


F              C        Gmin              Bb       F/Fsus4/F/Fsus4
So when you're near me, darling can't you hear me, SOS
F            C        Gmin             Bb       F/Fsus4/F/Fsus4 
The love you gave me, nothing less can save me, SOS

Bb                        Db     Eb        F
When you're gone, how can I even try to go on ?
Bb                         Db          Eb      F
When you're gone, though I try how can I carry on ?

[Verse 2]

Dmin                  A7                           Dmin
You seem so far away though you are standing near.
Dmin               A7                           Dmin
You make me feel alive but something died, I fear.
F                 C   Gmin          Dmin 
I really tried to make it up - I wish I understood.
Dmin             A7                     Dmin
What happened to our love, it used to be so good.

You forgot the bit between the verse and the chours:
[Dm A Dm C] [F Gm F C]
Change on the beat.
Fine besides that.

Yeah, the arpeggio works if you add the 7 to the C-chords, Sgt. Pepper

This is great :D and with Sgt. Peppers fill it sounds even better :)
And I think the "solo" after the second chorus is Dm A7 Dm Dm A7 Dm Dm A Dm C
