Notes: w = whole   h = half   q = quarter
	 e = 8th     s = 16th   t = 32nd  x = 64th
	 
	 Capital durations are dotted notes 
          (equal to 1.5 times the duration value)
       R = rest
	 + = tied from previous note

    #
+----+                                       +----+
|*--*|  = MEASURE                            |4:--|  = TIME 
|*--*|    REPEATS                            |4:--|    SIGNATURES

The chorus seems right, but the verse is a little off.
