I am writing a song for my girlfriend and our one-year annivesary, and I need some help creating the chords. I don't know how to create chords, but I can tell you what notes I need in the chords.

The first chord needs to feature a G but also include an F#, an E, and a D.
The progression is:

[U]Chorus[/U]
You’re the o- only girl I e- ver loved.
F# G D> G G G F# G E
You’re the o- only one that I dream of.
F# G D> G G G F# G E


(the D> just mean that I slide down from the D to the G)
The song is in 2/4 time

Maybe a series of chords might be better.


The second chord set needs to cover the following passage:

[U]Bridge[/U]
You are the one who loved me.
E G A B A G E
You are the one who told me,
E G A B A G E
That I de-served some-bo-dy won-der-ful…
E G A B A G E G A A


I want to strum before the first beats and on last beats of the first two lines. That is, I want to strum twice in quick succession so that it comes out as follows:
*strum-strum* *stop* "You are the one who loved"-*strum-"me"-strum*
So I want to strum on "me" and right after "me"/ before the next line.
However, I want to strum on "won" and "ful" also.

Bridge

*strum-strum* *stop* *strum-
You are the one who loved me.
*strum* *stop* *strum-
You are the one who told me,
*strum* *stop* *strum* *strum*
That I deserved somebody won-der-ful


Furthermore, the chords need to progress down and back up so that
Chords 1,2,and 3 are the same, 4 is like half-step down from chords 1-3, the same for 5 into 6, 7 goes back up the same way, and 8 continues the trend.
After that the succession repeats .

I know that this is alot to ask, especially as a new member, but I could really use your help, guys. I am not sure if you even have the slightest idea how this song is supposed to sound, but I hope I haven't been too confusing.

Thank you all,
Tadashi :D

*So I just realized that the forum software does not allow my spaces to exist in such a way as they actually let my notes/strums line up with my lyrics, so sorry. I hope someone can figure out what I mean and help me.*
