The variations of D chords above are not different other than the voicings, which in
country songs is an integral part of the song as most country songs use very popular
and usually overused chord patterns and so country musicians have to concentrate on
their voicings to bring a sense of originality to the song.

[Bm7]From the moment that we met [Gsus2]

My world was [d(1]turned around

[Asus2/4]Upside down

[Bm7]To some degree I still re[Gsus2]gret

My m[d(1]emory for keeping [Asus2/4]you around

[Em7sus4]Girl I thought that [F#/d]you were [Gsus2]mine

But my [Em7sus4]broken hearts been shattered[F#/d]

[Gsus2]One too many times

And I don’t want to [D(2]see you anymore

[Bm7(2]I’m just not that strong

I [Asus4]love it when you’re here,

But I’m [Gsus2]better when you’re gone

I’m [D(2]certain that I’ve given and [Bm7(2]oh how you can take

There’s [Asus4]no use in you looking

There’s nothing [Gsus2]left for you to break

Baby[Em7sus] please [F#/d]relea[Gsus2]se me

Em7sus F#/d Gsus2 (REPEAT INTRO)
Let my heart rest in pieces

In the next verse, the electric guitar in the background is playing around on
some suspensions in a small riff which is chordally derived from the on we heard
in the intro which means that if you like you CAN get away with a Bm7sus2 instead of
Bm7, but only if you are really being back by a band!

[Bm7]Someone let you down [Gsus2]again

So you [d(1]turn to me

Your [Asus4]convenient friend

[Bm7]Oh but I know what you’re [Gsus2]doing

And what you [d(1]hope to find

I’ve seen it a [Asus4]thousand times

[Em7sus4]Oh the fire we[F#/d] had b[Gsus2]efore

Are[Em7sus4] now just bitter ashes[F#/d]

Left [Gsus2]scattered on the floor

And I don’t want to [D(2]see you anymore

[Bm7(2]I’m just not that strong

I [Asus4]love it when you’re here,

But I’m [Gsus2]better when you’re gone

I’m [D(2]certain that I’ve given and [Bm7(2]oh how you can take

There’s [Asus4]no use in you looking

There’s nothing [Gsus2]left for you to break

Baby [Em7sus]please [F#/d]relea[Gsus2]se me

(careful below as they play one bar less than you would 'feel' before the solo!)
Let my [Em7sus]heart r[F#/d]est i[Gsus2]n pieces [Bm7sus2]        [Bm7]


Yeaaahh...................
SOLO - d(3), Bm7(2), Asus4, Gsus2
And I don’t want to [D(2]see you anymore

[Bm7(2]I’m just not that strong

I [Asus4]love it when you’re here,

But I’m [Gsus2]better when you’re gone

I’m [D(2]certain that I’ve given and [Bm7(2]oh how you can take

There’s [Asus4]no use in you looking

There’s nothing [Gsus2]left for you to break

Baby [Em7sus]please [F#/d]relea[Gsus2]se me

We both [Em7sus]know that [F#/d]you don't [Gsus2]need me

Let my [Em7sus]heart r[F#/d]est i[Gsus2]n pieces

Here again we see the intro motif reappear, this time however it is best to play it chordally
as follows with the chords changing in rhythm to the riff:
BAR 1 2 3 4
|Bm7sus2 Bm7| Bm7sus2 Bm7(3)| Bm7sus2 Bm7| Bm7sus2 Bm7(3)| x2

You should be able to see that the motif is all that is changing between these chords but by
presenting it like this it provides a harmonically pleasing voice!

You can also get away with playing it as in the intro of course, depending on whether you want
to finish it loudly or delicately!
