Maybe it's just me, but I'm not sure on that A chord during the chorus/intro. But otherwise it sounds great, good job :)

Ummm to the person up there ^, this is a perfect tab/chords. The A is correct, what are you talking about?

It's annoying when people post that they think a chord is wrong but don't post what they think is correct... but in this case, this is a really simple and basic song, and the chords on here are obviously right.

Wonderful tab.
