Listen To The Music Chords

I wanted to learn this song a long time ago as a beginner and 
there were no easy-ish tabs on it, so I had my guitar teacher 
sound out the chords for me.  I think this is a nearly perfect tab.

While you play the D chords, you can use your ring finger and 
pinky on the high e string to get the background melody you 
hear prodominantly throughout the song like this:

e  ------0 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 0 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 2 2 0------ 

And when you play the Bridge/Verse 3 towards the end, use this
C and G fingering for the chords:

    C   G
e   3   3
B   3   3
G   0   0
D   2   0
A   3   2
E   0   3

Bridge/Verse 3:
D                    C
Like a lazy flowing river
C                           G
Surrounding castles in the sky
D                        C
And the crowd is growing bigger
Listenin' for the happy sounds and I got to let ‘em fly 

(Chorus a couple times)
