Hi! this is my first tab ever.. and its very similar to what others are posting, 
but i absolutely love how it sounds in this key.
hope you guys love it too

Capo 5.

[Verse 1]

Em               G                       Am
Same bed, but it feels just a little bit bigger now
D               D7                  G             Bm
Our song on the radio, but it don't sound the same
Em                    G                             Am
When our friends talk about you all it does is just tear me down
D                                     G
Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name


           Bm                    Em          Bm      
And it all just sounds like ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    F                         G
mmm too young, too dumb to realize


     D                        C      D              G
That I should have bought you flowers and held your hand
                            C     D               G
Should have gave you all my hours when I had the chance
                  C                   D                 G
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
              C                  Cm                    G         Bm
Now my baby's dancing, but she's dancing with another man.

[Verse 2]

Em           G                    Am          
My pride, my ego, my needs and my selfish ways
D                    D7                      G        Bm
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
      Em     G                         Am
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made
       D                            G
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes


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


                   C      D                      G
I hope he buys you flowers, I hope he holds your hand
                 C     D               G
Give you all his hours when he has the chance
                  C            D                              G
Take you to every party cause I remember how much you loved to dance
                    C               Cm               G
Do all the things I should have done when I was your man
                    C               Cm               G
Do all the things I should have done when I was your man
