The variations of D chords above are not different other than the voicings, which in country songs is an integral part of the song as most country songs use very popular and usually overused chord patterns and so country musicians have to concentrate on their voicings to bring a sense of originality to the song.

Bm7Someone let you down Gsus2again So you Dturn to me Your Asus4convenient friend Bm7Oh but I know what you’re Gsus2doing And what you Dhope to find I’ve seen it a Asus4thousand times Em7sus4Oh the fire weF haDd bGsus2efore AreEm7sus4 now just bitter ashesF D Left Gsus2scattered on the floor And I don’t want to Dsee you anymore Bm7I’m just not that strong I Asus4love it when you’re here, But I’m Gsus2better when you’re gone I’m Dcertain that I’ve given and oh hoBm7w you can take There’s Asus4no use in you looking There’s nothing Gsus2left for you to break Baby Em7susplease FrelDeaGsus2se me Let my Em7susheart rFestD iGsus2n pieces Bm7sus2 Bm7 Yeaaahh...................

And I don’t want to Dsee you anymore Bm7I’m just not that strong I Asus4love it when you’re here, But I’m Gsus2better when you’re gone I’m Dcertain that I’ve given and oh hoBm7w you can take There’s Asus4no use in you looking There’s nothing Gsus2left for you to break Baby Em7susplease FrelDeaGsus2se me We both Em7susknow that FyouD don't Gsus2need me Let my Em7susheart rFestD iGsus2n pieces Here again we see the intro motif reappear, this time however it is best to play it chordally as follows with the chords changing in rhythm to the riff: BAR 1 2 3 4 |Bm7sus2 Bm7| Bm7sus2 Bm7(3)| Bm7sus2 Bm7| Bm7sus2 Bm7(3)| x2 You should be able to see that the motif is all that is changing between these chords but by presenting it like this it provides a harmonically pleasing voice! You can also get away with playing it as in the intro of course, depending on whether you want to finish it loudly or delicately!
