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 Gsus2 From the moment that we met D(1) My world was turned around Asus2/4 Upside down Bm7 Gsus2 To some degree I still regret D(1) Asus2/4 My memory for keeping you around Em7sus4 F#/D Gsus2 Girl I thought that you were mine Em7sus4 F#/D But my broken hearts been shattered Gsus2 One too many times D(2) And I donít want to see you anymore Bm7(2) Iím just not that strong Asus4 I love it when youíre here, Gsus2 But Iím better when youíre gone D(2) Bm7(2) Iím certain that Iíve given and oh how you can take Asus4 Thereís no use in you looking Gsus2 Thereís nothing left for you to break Em7sus F#/D Gsus2 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! Bm7 Gsus2 Someone let you down again D(1) So you turn to me Asus4 Your convenient friend Bm7 Gsus2 Oh but I know what youíre doing D(1) And what you hope to find Asus4 Iíve seen it a thousand times Em7sus4 F#/D Gsus2 Oh the fire we had before Em7sus4 F#/D Are now just bitter ashes Gsus2 Left scattered on the floor D(2) And I donít want to see you anymore Bm7(2) Iím just not that strong Asus4 I love it when youíre here, Gsus2 But Iím better when youíre gone D(2) Bm7(2) Iím certain that Iíve given and oh how you can take Asus4 Thereís no use in you looking Gsus2 Thereís nothing left for you to break Em7sus F#/D Gsus2 Baby please release me (careful below as they play one bar less than you would 'feel' before the solo!) Em7sus F#/D Gsus2 Bm7sus2 Bm7 Let my heart rest in pieces Yeaaahh................... SOLO - D(3), Bm7(2), Asus4, Gsus2 D(2) And I donít want to see you anymore Bm7(2) Iím just not that strong Asus4 I love it when youíre here, Gsus2 But Iím better when youíre gone D(2) Bm7(2) Iím certain that Iíve given and oh how you can take Asus4 Thereís no use in you looking Gsus2 Thereís nothing left for you to break Em7sus F#/D Gsus2 Baby please release me Em7sus F#/D Gsus2 We both know that you don't need me Em7sus F#/D Gsus2 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! Tabbed by Andrew and a Braindead Monkey.
