[Verse 1]

D       Bm  Em       A     D  Bm
That boy     took my love away.
Em              A           D  Bm
 Though he'll regret it someday,

This boy wants you back again.

That boy     isn't good for you.
Em             A7        D  Bm
 Though he may want you, too,
Em       A              D      D7
This boy wants you back again.

 Would always feel the same,
     Em       A              D   Bm  Em  A
'Til this boy gets you back again.

It's wrong!.You only got the start correct
It's like this: Main Riff - D,Bm,Em,A
chorus - G,F#,Bm,D - G,E,A.

And before the chorus you go from D to D7

Replace the G's with Em's, it sounds better
