sounds accurate and good job, but i think you forgot to add the bridge.

Clearly wrong. Intro and Verse is Am Em Dm Dm Em Fmaj7
Chorus:
E Am G C
Open for business says it all

Lyrics is completely wrong!

@petzithebaer Thank you for your feedback! I have relooked, and edited many parts of the song:

- Corrected all the lyrics
- Added the bridge
- Added an alternate ending from the video version of the song.

Hope you guys enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed it.
