This is the most accurate of the tab I have found for this piece and I thank you very much to whomever created it. It has given me such joy to be able to play this.

In reply to julian: you play through from the start to the 'Da Capo al Coda *', then from the start again up to the 'To Coda *', then jump to the Coda (the last 3 lines) and play to the end.
