The chord progressions and locations are spot on, but I think the whole song should be transposed up into C (so play C, G7 and F instead of B, F#7 and E). If you play C in the 'Bb' shape on 3rd fret and G7 barred on 3rd fret it sounds about right. Thanks for the tab!

I agree with sholdway. Just transpose the song +1 and the chords are accurate. The locations aren't spot on and there is a C (B before transposing) at "land" in "in a atrange land", but overall it works just fine.
