good job, easy to play and sing along, only thing I'm not sure about is the "how I love ya, Frisco part..."

hey all. On riff 5, i don't think it's Fadd9 Dadd9 Cadd9 Dadd9. Not quite sure what it is but that sounds pretty off. My best guess was this:

Esus4 x|7|9|9|10|x
Dsus4 x|5|7|7|8|x
C x|3|5|5|5|x
Bm7 x|2|4|2|3|x

Let me know what you think of this or if you got something better.
