Excellent. This is by far the easiest way I've found of playing this song. Which is how it should be because it's essentially a pretty simple song. This version also means that the transition between the last two chords in a verse (for example F to E in the first few verses) goes down in pitch wheres others I've seen just up and octave in order to get the change in there, so this version sounds 100 times better.

I don't think it's in the same key as the song (I could be wrong, I'm not good at that sort of thing) but that's besides the point. If your just playing along by yourself without the music this is by far the best version.

I would change E to E7. It sounds better. Do the same for Bbm and Bm. F7 and F#7. Excellent tab.
