Hey i hope you like this coz this is how i feel that it sounds like, as far as i am
concerned i think that it is very close to if not the exact same as how they play it,
it may be a little harder to play than the others but there is also a feeling of
authenticity
when playing, well anyways, enjoy!

Through the whole song it is basically 2 beats per chord  unless well you should be able
to know when, just listen to the song for  these times.

Don't your feet get cold in the winter time?

The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine

You better let somebody love you
           G/D     B7/D#    Em
You better let somebody love you
  Am7/D              |G / G7 / | C / Cm6 / | G
before it's too late

Some of it's right, but it looks like this Hippyshoota character was trying to hard.... I'll say it again, Version 1 is the correct one.

I take it back ^, I tried it again and found it to be very well done, but kind of difficult with all the different chords and all. I'm still going to say Version 1 is still better and easier to do!
