your in the wrong key genius. try Am7 and Dm7 when the guitar starts and youll realize. it's played like this: emphasize the high e string notes
e|-8----5-|
B|-5----6-|
G|-5----5-|
D|-5----7-|
A|-0----5-|
E|--------|
now change all your chords to this key and you might have an ace 60s tab.

Jackie DeShannon's (ace 60s) version is in Ab, just like in Andrew Rogers' tab and Dionne Warwick's (ace 60s) version is in A. Get out your pitchpipe, Cap'n.
