I was ill and bed-bound so decided to pick up the guitar.  Did this in 2 hours so there 
may still be mistakes, will be updating any corrections.

This tab is awesome and I got the gist of it. But I don't think the 3rd and 4th sections of the 1st and last chorus is correct.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P94FpKuvNdsIt just doesn't look or sound right. Any help?
