Thanks I enjoyed your tab! One slight correction I noticed is that on the part where he says "call me by my stage name they will..." You have a

C
then a
C#dim
. I listened to the song several times and I am almost certain that it is suppose to be a
Cm
in place of the
C#dim
.

Thanks for the chords, I enjoyed your tab! I found one small correction. When he says "call me by my stage name they will..." you have a C followed by a C#dim. I listened to the song several times and I believe it is suppose to be C followed by Cm in place of the C#dim. Thanks again!

Sorry I am not sure what happened with my first comment, but it did not get posted correctly and I can't find a way to delete it.
