*This chart is based on an arrangement by Roy Sinclair, kindly provided to me at my request after watching him perform his version on YouTube. I transposed his from G to D, then added slight variations on both verse 2 and verse 3 -- with the intent to show that you can play the song simply (verse 1) if you have a vocalist, or more elaborately (2 or 3) if you do the song as an instrumental and want to inject a little more color.
