Comment for any corrections and please rate

The chords I wrote here are for the acoustic version of 
It's Such A Long Way Home of the album Home, 
Though you can also play them along with the original.

Intro: D  Em  D  Em  A

Verse 1:
 D                               Em
Sitting by the window of this broken-down hotel,
  D                                Em
Trying to write a letter just to show you that I'm well,
               D                                Em
But I've been watching all the people as they cross the marketplace,
      D                                          Em
And though there really is no reason, I've been looking for your face.

Chorus:      
             D       Bm  Em  A
It's such a long way        home,
             D       Bm  Em  A
It's such a long way        home,
             D       Bm  Em  A
It's such a long way...

Verse 2:
  D                            Em
Standing by the aeroplane she held me in her arms,
               D                                    Em
And then she whispered "oh dear lord don't let him come to any harm"
           D                             Em
And as we turned to fly away I saw her standing on her own,
               D                             Em
It seemed her hand was waving not goodbye but "please come home".

Chorus:
             D       Bm  Em  A
It's such a long way        home,
             D       Bm  Em  A
It's such a long way        home,
             D       Bm  Em  A
It's such a long way...

Bridge:
    G                       F#m
Oh so many people have to travel away,
         Em                            D
From the ones that they love and they need,
    G                       F#m
But I want to tell you that all your life,
     Em              A
You can depend on me.

Verse 3:
 D                    Em
Far away a saxophone lingers on a tune,
              D                                   Em
And it's the kind of song that someone wrote for lovers and a moon,
            D                               Em
And as the band begins to play it, with a shock I realize,
             D                            Em
That it's a song we sang together and it nearly makes me cry.

Chorus:
             D       Bm  Em  A
It's such a long way         home,
             D       Bm  Em  A
It's such a long way         home,
             D       Bm  Em          A          G   D
It's such a long way         such a long way home.
