At the end of the song, add one more Fm measure* before strumming the final chords.  
3/5 are the same thing as verses 1/2/4/6, except you leave out that F measure near the end 
the verse, and play one less Fm measure.  Sorry if that’s confusing :( haha

sorry! my little note was wrong. i think this would sound a lot better:

At the end of the song, add one more F measure* before strumming the final chords. Verses 3/5 are the same thing as verses 1/2/4/6, except you only play one Fm measure at the end.

Looks pretty good to me. Thanks for your comment on my Condor Ave. tab. Thought i'd reciprocate. Good tab, keep it up
