[Intro]

Dmaj7 Dm7 C
Dmaj7 Dm7 C  C/B


[Verse 1]

Am              C                        Dm
Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now
G               G7                  C           C  C/B
Our song on the radio but it don't sound the same
Am                       C                           Dm
When our friends talk about you, all it does is just tear me down
G                                     C
Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name


[Pre-Chorus]

        C/B              Am   Em
It all just sounds like oooooh…
  Bb                           Gsus4 G
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize


[Chorus]

                              F
That I should have bought you flowers
G
And held your hand
                             F
Should have gave you all my hours
G                 C
When I had the chance
                   F
Take you to every party
               G                Am
Cause all you wanted to do was dance
D7             F
Now my baby's dancing
            Fm                 C     F C C/B
But she's dancing with another man


[Verse 2] (same chords)

My pride, my ego, my needs, and my selfish ways
Caused a good, strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes


[Pre-Chorus]

        C/B              Am   Em
It all just sounds like oooooh…
  Bb                           Gsus4 G
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize


[Chorus]

                              F
That I should have bought you flowers
G
And held your hand
                             F
Should have gave you all my hours
G                 C
When I had the chance
                   F
Take you to every party
               G                Am
Cause all you wanted to do was dance
D7             F
Now my baby's dancing
            Fm                 C     F C C/B
But she's dancing with another man


[Bridge]

             F
Although it hurts
             G                      C   G   Am G
I'll be the first to say that I was wrong
       DMaj7
Oh, I know I'm probably much too late
           Dm7
To try and apologize for my mistakes
G
But I just want you to know


[Outro]

                   F   G
I hope he buys you flowers
                      C
I hope he holds your hand
                  F     G
Give you all his hours
                 C
When he has the chance
                  F
Take you to every party
         G                             Am
Cause I remember how much you loved to dance
D7                F                 Fm
Do all the things I should have done
                C
When I was your man
D7                F                 Fm
Do all the things I should have done
                C
When I was your man

I think the chorus sounds better adding in the C/B after the C, right at "Should have" and "Take you". Also I think you're missing a C chord on "hand"? Awesome otherwise though!
