These chords are much better than ver 1. Though I wouldn't write chords for that organ riff. It's just chromatic single notes (and the chord I would play over it would maybe be F major). The A chord in the verse should be Am. In the second verse only the first chord is A major, the other A chords are minors. But I give you 5 stars because these are more correct than ver 1 (they lack a couple of 7s here and there but they aren't necessary to play).

I agree about the A major being A minor - if you play the melody he sings you'll see it uses the flattened 3rd - but, otherwise, good tab.
