The Bb- and the Eb-chords are quite a stretch in first position. I've
choosen for this as the low F can only be reached in the first
position. You can also play these chords in the sixth position but
then the distance to the low F is very large.
This would be the alternative:

  1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +    1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +

Solo:

The backing for the solo is the same as the first eight bars of
the chorus.

Before you start with the solo you'll have to learn an old country-lick
which is used in rock many times (if you don't know it already).
Play the following triad:

E|--8--|             E|-----|  For this   E|-----|  
B|--8--| Now it's    B|-----|  lick you   B|-----|
G|--9--| about this  G|--9--|  have to    G|-7b9-|
D|-----| note:       D|-----|  bend the   D|-----|
A|-----|             A|-----|  note up    A|-----|
E|-----|             E|-----|  from the   E|-----|
                               7th pos.

In order to place   E|--8--|   Play the bend with      E|-8---|
this into the       B|--8--|   your ringfinger         B|-8---|
chord you'll        G|-----|  (supported by the        G|-7b9-|
have to place       D|-----|   middle finger and/or    D|-----|
a small bar         A|-----|   the index finger if     A|-----|
with your pinky     E|-----|   necessary)              E|-----|
on the 8th pos.                

The full lick Francis plays:
  1   +   2   +
