I think that the chords and strumming pattern fit perfectly with the song. This is amazing!

they don't put the lyrics because that would be a copyright infringement. You can find a more detailed answer on the FAQ page of this site.

I didn't actually play to the song with this tab but it sounds great if you're playing alone. I didn't sound right at first but then I finally found the right key to sing in and it fit perfectly. Good job!

This seems to look like a bit of a simple version...good job though, I still think its good for beginners. What do you mean by 'down'?

This doesn't sound right at all. The strumming is ok, but the chords are totally off. This could be any song.
