Pick the first section like above:

See I've been here for 28 years.

Pounding sweat beneath these wheels.
                    F
We tattooed lines beneath our skin.
               C                        G (play chord let ring)
No surrender, my Bobby Jean.

Verse 1:

Strum the other sections:

                    Am
See I've been here for 28 years.
                Em
Pounding sweat beneath these wheels.
                    F
We tattooed lines beneath our skin.
               C                        G
No surrender, my Bobby Jean.

                     Am
We've been burned by all our fears.
                  Em
Just from growing up around here.
                       F
Our father's factories marked our cars.
           C                                     G
While Eden burned against the stars.

Chorus 1:

              C
And Sally said, Sally said.
             Em
I can't take no more regret.
                F
It cut us deep, into our souls.
                  C                       G
Came and climbed into our bed.
                 C
And Sally said, Sally said.
              Em
Meet me by the River's edge.
                F
We're going to wash these sins away.
                C                              G
Or else we won't come back again.


Cadd – Emadd – C - G


Verse 2:

               Am
You know I had these ballroom dreams.
             Em
That, as a child, came to me.
            F
I was a boy in Grandma's arms.

                     C                         G
A mother's pride and a wounded heart.
                      Am
And I was full with fiery wonder.
                    Em
You wore Audrey Hepburn pearls.
                    F                           C
You were the only one who understood me then
                                 G
and the only one who will.

Chorus 2:

              C
And Sally said, Sally said.
             Em
I can't take no more regret.
                F
It cut us deep, into our souls.
                  C                       G
Came and climbed into our bed.
                 C
And Sally said, Sally said.
              Em
Meet me by the River's edge.
                F
We're going to wash these sins away.
                C                              G
Or else we won't come back again.

Bridge:

          Am          G        F          C
And now I drive the 101 on the California night.
         Am               G                  F             C
And I'm amazed at all the stars beneath that old Hollywood sign.
       Am                 G              F              C
And we waltz, ballet up a boulevard to a place we never kept
        Am               G               F           C                    G
And I'm not sure if we belong here, if I ever really left, or if I can go home

Chorus / Outro:

              C (one strum)
And Sally said, Sally said.
             Em (one strum)
I can't take no more regret.
                F
It cut us deep, into our souls.
                  C                       G
Came and climbed into our bed.
                 C
And Sally said, Sally said.
              Em
Meet me by the River's edge.
                F
We're going to wash these sins away.
                C                              G
Or else we won't come back again.
          CEmFCG (repeat)
No retreat. No regrets.
              C              G             C (end)
Meet me by the river's edge.

Firstly, you've transcribed the song a whole tone too high.

Starts on a Gm and transpose accordingly.

Moreover, I'm not convinced the Em chord you have in both the verse and chorus is correct. Transposing down, you're suggesting it's a Dm in the verse. I believe it's a Cm. So the chords should read:

Gm/Cm/Eb/Bb/F

In the chorus it should be a Gm, instead of a (transposed down again) Dm.

So Bb/Gm/Eb/Bb/F

Other than that it's okay. Three stars.

Actually, I stand corrected. It IS a Dm in the verse.

Gm/Dm/Eb/Bb/F

This is great and there's no need to transpose - who likes playing in Bb? Just tune down to D standard like Gaslight and you're good to go!
