The Circle of life from The Lion King Soundtrack (Gabe Bondoc Cover)

This tab is my interpretation of the work of Gabe Bondoc.  
His cover can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_6uvAQXdxk

My chords are different but sound roughly the same.

G(alt)   320033      F9      133213
C        332010      Dsus4   200233
D9       200210      E7      020130
Em7      022033      C9      032033
A7sus4   002233

         G(alt)               C            D9                      G(alt)
From the day we arrive on the planet,  And blinking, step into the sun
        Em7                  A7sus4                 F9                  D9
There's more to see than can ever be seen,  More to do than can ever be done
        G(alt)               C                 D9                    G(alt)
There's far too much to take in here,  More to find than can ever be found
        Em7                            A7sus4    
But the sun rolling high,  Through the sapphire sky
                F9                   D9
Keeps great and small on the endless round

                   G(alt)                 F9
It's the Circle of Life   And it moves us all
                    C                       Dsus4
Through despair and hope  Through faith and love
                 G(alt) E7                C          A7sus4
Till we find our place       On the path unwinding
       G(alt)  C/D9             C9      G(alt)
In the Circle     The Circle of Life

G(alt)        C               D9               G(alt)
Em7           A7sus4          F9               D9

                 G(alt) E7                C          A7sus4
Till we find our place       On the path unwinding
       G(alt)  C/D9             C9      G(alt)
In the Circle     The Circle of Life

How do I play the F9 chord? I ran out of fingers :( !..!,
You can do a 2 note bar with your third finger but is that really worth it to get that 9th note in there? And is that the right way to do it?

You don't need to hit both, the rest of the chord sounds itself fine (you are hitting the tonic and the 5th already).

One thing I'd say of the tab is that it isn't really a 9 chord as it doesn't have the minor 7th (so F9 is really 101, it's more an Fsus9 or Dsus9 or something.
