Riptide Chords

This is my first tab so I hope you enjoy =)
Although most of the other tabs either have a capo on the first fret, or none at 
all, I play it with the capo on the 5th fret.
The only chords used throughout the entire song are Am, G and C. 
The strummig pattern is down down up down up (although you can use your own 
variations on it if you want to.

Am           G                   C (x2)

Am               G                C
I was scared of dentists and the dark,
Am             G            C
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations,
Am           G                C

Am                    G                       C

There's this movie that I think you'll like,
