Does anyone have a good guitar tab for "Sweet Suzanne" off of "Falling From Grace?" It's John Mellencamp, John Prine, and Dwight Yoakam. Great song, but I can't find the tab

Help?

Thanks!

VERSE:
 D         F#m
Now, right now
 G                    D
Look at the place I'm in
 D                
When I think about 
               F#m           
Things that I could have done
        G                     A
It's impossible for me to pretend


CHORUS:
       G                  A
But I see it now as the lights grow dim
         Bm                        G
And the world starts to close its eyes
        G                 A
I just wanted to say goodnight

Sweet Suzanne

I hear the music playin'
      G                D
But I no longer understand
 D                 F#m
Around the corner, down the street
      G                            A
It's got to be better than where I am


CHORUS:
   G                      A
I see it all now, as the light grows dim
         Bm                        G
And the world starts to close its eyes

I just wanted to say goodnight
          D   
Sweet Suzanne

        G                 A
I just wanted to say goodnight
      Bm                    G
Just wanted to see if everything was alright
       G                A
Just wanted to say goodnight

VERSE:
 D       F#m  G           D
Time goes by, oh, so quietly
 D            F#m
Hazy days and memories
            G                 A
And in the end there was only me
G                      A
Wouldn't have been, I ask sometimes
Bm                  G
But I see myself inside this rhyme
  G                      A
Enjoyed what I had back then
G                 A
 Would I do it again?


CHORUS:
         Bm                 G
Well, I see it now as the lights grow dim

I just wanted to say goodnight again
