Hey thanks for the tab, but I have a few corrections. The melody seems spot on but when I tried to play the chorus with those chords it didn't sound right. I think I figured out the chord progression for the chorus: it's Ab major for 1 measure, C major or C 7 for 1 measure, Bb major for 1 measure, Db minor for 1/2 measure, and E major for 1/2 measure. Hope this helps.
