very nice, i was trying to transcribe this myself and i came on here to double check. The other one was way wrong during the D/F# part which i got the same thing u got but i was playing C/G at the end but your Am/G is correct. kudos

Very good tab.
In the intro, although technically it's a C6, as part of the progression I would call it an Am/C instead.
The first verse lyric is 'a Sunday joint of bread and honey', not Sunday jam, as in they can only afford bread and honey instead of a joint of meat.

Only change I would make is the D/F# I would play as D7/F#, but it's a subtle change. In the final part of the coda with the trumpet riff it suggests a repeating C to F7, again, a matter of choice.
