     ^^^^^^
     also called Dsus2, but I'm trying to maintain consistency here


[Intro]

(guitar 1 only): 

A  Dadd9  A   Dadd9  A   Dadd9  A  Dadd9


[Verse 1]

A       D                A
 Take my picture off the wall
A         D                A
 It don't matter to me at all
           E
Said I was headed for a fall
        D            A
But you wanted me to call


A          D  A
 Give back my TV
         A        D        A
It don't mean that much to me
            E
While you're giving back my things
         D                  A
Give me back the key to my heart


[Chorus]

     A        D          A
Give back the key to my heart
     A        D          A
Give back the key to my heart
           E                D
And let my love flow like a river
                   A
Straight into your heart, dear


[Solo] 

A Dadd9 A A A Dadd9 A A 


[Verse 2]

A          D             A
 Well, you say I was the one
   A             D                 A
To blame for the wrong that's been done
          E
Well, you got a friend in cocaine
          D              A
And you believe he is to blame


       A            D         A
He has drained life from your face
       A D        A
He has taken that place
        E
You're alone in San Anton


[Chorus]

        D                  A
Give me back the key to my heart
     A        D         A
Give back the key to my heart
     A        D         A
Give back the key to my heart
           E                D
And let my love flow like a river
                   A
Straight into your heart, dear


[Outro] 

A Dadd9 A Dadd9 A Dadd9 A

Nice to see I'm not the only one who is meticulous about chord placement. Nice work.
