Practicing with this song, you could use this type of music software available for your
PC or MAC, called Back Pocket Band

Looking at the chord chart, we would play the vi chord (Dminor), 
then to the I chord (F), on to the V chord which is C and then 
we move on to the ii chord with Gm. Bb is the IV chord.

Here's the entire chord chart to Set Fire to the Rain by Adele:

Intro: Dm, F, C, Gm

Verse:

          Dm       F
I let it fall, my heart,
          C                Gm
And as it fell you rose to claim it.
       Dm                 F
It was dark and I was over,
          C                       Bb
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

Verse
    Dm            F....
My hands they're strong, 
but my knees were far too weak,
Stand in your arms
without fall to your your feet,

Refrain:
              Dm                   Gm 
But there's a side to you that I never knew, I never knew.
           Dm                                 Dm
All the things you'd say, they where never true, never true,
          Bb                     C
And the games you'd play, you would always, always win.

[Chorus: ]
           Dm
But I set fire to the rain,
         C
Watch it pour as I touched your face,
     Gm
well it burn while I cry,
                              Dm              C
Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

Verse:
When I'm with you
I could stay there,
Close my eyes, feel you're here forever,
You and me together, nothing is better!

Refrain:
Cause there's a side to you that I never, never knew,
All the things you'd say they where never true, never true,
And the games you'd play, you would always, always win.

[Chorus: ]
But I set fire to the rain,
Watch it pour as I touched your face,
well it burned while I cry,
Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!
I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
And it felt something die,
Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time!

Bridge:
         Bb                F/A
Sometimes I wake up by the door, 
         Am                          C
That heart you caught, must be waiting for you, 
     Bb                      F/A
Even now when we're already over,
     Am                            C 
I can't help myself from looking for you

[Chorus: ]
I set fire to the rain,
Watch it pour as I touch your face,
well it burn when I cry,
Cause I heard it screaming your name, your name
I set fire to the rain,
And I threw us into the flames
Cause I knew that was the last time
The last time, oh, oh!
