Iron & Wine - 16, maybe less chords and lyrics

I posted my first Iron & Wine songs in May ( "Flightless Bird, American Mouth" and "Passing Afternoon" ) having just recently started to listen to the band.

I've liked everything I've heard so far, so I plan to keep listening, and working out playable versions of their songs, beginning this month with "Sixteen, maybe less" from their joint venture with Calexico, "In the Reins".

The chords are pretty simple, just D, Bm, G and A - although I have transcribed to C, Am, F and G, with capo on the 2nd fret. I suspect this is how the original was played, as there are nice little runs between the C and Am, that lend the song to being played in the key of C.

You can check out my chords and lyrics interpretation of "16, Maybe Less" on my Rock Guitar song chords page at the link below:
