The only time there is a G7 in the song is in the first two lines of each verse. For all other occurrences of a G7 in the tab the chord is actually Bb.

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. The only time there is a G7 in the song is in the first two lines of each verse. For all other occurrences of a G7 in the tab the chord is actually Bb.
