That D chord is totally wrong should be a Bm,
also all the E chords should be played as Em,
Thanks and kudos to Lester Owen for the corrections

Additional Verse.

Last night I dreamen, I held you in my arms,
And once again you were my happy bride,
I kissed you as I did on Auld Lang Syne
As to the church we wandered side by side.
