This is Green Day’s Grammy Award winning song “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.”  
This song is very simple and easy to understand.  These chords are absolutely correct, 
but you must play along with the song to get the correct strumming pattern.  During 
the final chorus, wait for the rhythm to be played twice before you begin the slide.  
Enjoy and have fun.
