Capo on the 5th Fret not 1st:

Otherwise the First chord is F instead of C and you can change all the chords 5 frets up and convert them to the real sound and chords.

The trick is that the song is in 3/4 time

Of the ten or so versions I looked at, this is the only one that was correct to the music played in Andy's version of the song. Even more complex versions don't sound right. I highly recommend this version. I transposed it to the key of G to suit my voice.
