Guitar chords with lyrics

"Key West Intermezzo (I Saw You First)"
 By John Mellencamp
 Transcribed by Matt McClain
 (Divine Inspiration by Tiffany Waggoner)

 This song is played in "G" but you tune down 1/2 step, so it is really in Gb.
 I guess John thinks he's in Alice In Chains or something.
 I have typed this in by memory, so this may not be 100% accurate,
 but it is fun to play.
 I like to slow this song down and play it on my friend's 12 string.
 Enjoy.

 This posting is for Tiffany.  I love her very very very very much.
 She is the reason that I write and play music, and why I asked her to marry me.
(SHE SAID YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
 I welcome any corrections and additions.

Corrected lyrics have been given to me by at least 3 cool people:

and some other cool person who doesn't come to mind (Sorry, dude.)

Peace and Love!!!
