Letterbomb Chords

I was having difficulty learning it (to play while singing it) with the other 
tabs/chords, so decided to try to figure it out myself. I spent a while on this, so it should be 
accurate, and I am absolutely positive about the lyrics.

Chords used:
E5: 022xxx
E5(2): x799xx
Eb5: x688xx
Ab5: 466xxx
C#5: x466xx
F#5: 244xxx
A5: 577xxx or x022xx
B5: 799xxx or x244xx
C5: x355xx or 81010xxx

Nobody likes you, everyone left you, they're all out without you, having fun...
