This song was originally written by Sonny Curtis who played with Buddy Holly and later
with the Crickets. I have not heard the Crickets recording but have always loved playing
the Bobby Fuller Four version. It has such a unique chord solo which starts off playing
C in three different positions. It's not too hard to play, once you get the timing for
all those triplets.

I don't think there are any A chords in this song. I suggest:

D G D G
E-5--3--2--3--|
B-7--3--3--3--|
G-7--4--2--4--|
D-7--5-----5--|
A-------------|
E-------------|

same thing in the chord solo.
