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.

 Bm7Gsus2
 From the moment that we met  

 d(1
My world was turned around

 Asus2/4
 Upside down

 Bm7Gsus2
 To some degree I still regret

 d(1Asus2/4
My memory for keeping you around

 Em7sus4F#/dGsus2
 Girl I thought that you were mine

 Em7sus4F#/d
But my broken hearts been shattered 

 Gsus2
 One too many times

 D(2
And I don't want to see you anymore

 Bm7(2
 I'm just not that strong

 Asus4
love it when you're here,

 Gsus2
But I'm better when you're gone

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

 Asus4
There's no use in you looking

 Gsus2
There's nothing left for you to break

 Em7susF#/dGsus2
Baby please release 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!

 Bm7Gsus2
 Someone let you down again

 d(1
So you turn to me

 Asus4
Your convenient friend

 Bm7Gsus2
 Oh but I know what you're doing

 d(1
And what you hope to find

 Asus4
I've seen it a thousand times

 Em7sus4F#/dGsus2
 Oh the fire we had before

 Em7sus4F#/d
Are now just bitter ashes 

 Gsus2
Left scattered on the floor

 D(2
And I don't want to see you anymore

 Bm7(2
 I'm just not that strong

 Asus4
love it when you're here,

 Gsus2
But I'm better when you're gone

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

 Asus4
There's no use in you looking

 Gsus2
There's nothing left for you to break

 Em7susF#/dGsus2
Baby please release me

(careful below as they play one bar less than you would 'feel' before the solo!)
 Em7susF#/dGsus2Bm7sus2Bm7
Let my heart rest in pieces          

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

 Bm7(2
 I'm just not that strong

 Asus4
love it when you're here,

 Gsus2
But I'm better when you're gone

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

 Asus4
There's no use in you looking

 Gsus2
There's nothing left for you to break

 Em7susF#/dGsus2
Baby please release me

 Em7susF#/dGsus2
We both know that you don't need me

 Em7susF#/dGsus2
Let my heart rest in 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!
