                Is this OK for a tab style?

I'll offer a piece of tab that I did for someone recently.  It's not my
usual favorite style of music, but what the hey.  I'm not very good with
chord names, so maybe somebody can correct or help me.

Intro: G G(add a Bflat like 320013) G(add a C like 320033)  
       G (add a B flat as before)...D 

During the verse, the guitar usually throws in a Dsus (xx0233) on the
first chord.

What I call chords and what they really mean.
D/F# is (200232)


D
You know a dream is like a river,

     G              D
ever changing as it flows

        G                D/F#
And the dreamer's just a vesse     
and I know I'll take some falls

             Em              D/F#
But with the Good Lord as my Captain

                           A
I can make it through them all.
whats in store

           D
Makes each day a constant battle

        A                D
just to stay between the shores.



           D
And I will sail my vessel
      
         G          D
till the River runs dry

       G             D/F#
Like a bird upon the wind

      Em            A
these waters are my sky

           D       
I'll never reach my destination

G                        D
if I never try so I will sail my vessel

         A          D 
Till the River runs dry.


Too many times we stand aside
and let the waters slip away
Till what we've put off till tomorrow
has now become today
So don't you sit upon the shoreline
and say you're satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
and dare to dance the tide.

CHORUS

BRIDGE

             Bm                G
Well there's bound to be rough waters

      D    D/F#           G              
and I know I'll take some falls

             Em              D/F#
But with the Good Lord as my Captain

                           A
I can make it through them all.



           E
Yes I will sail my vessel
      
         A          E
till the River runs dry

       A             E/G#
Like a bird upon the wind

      F#m           B
these waters are my sky

           E       
I'll never reach my destination 

A
if I never try 

          E
so I will sail my vessel

         B          E   A
Till the River runs dry.

           E                       B          A
Yes I will sail my vessel Till the River runs dry.

You can fake a good ending staying on the A and suspending it
(x02230) and ending on the E.
