**By now you know that I'm doing interpretations of recordings -- not verbatim transcriptions. But there's at least one chord on this chart that is NOT AT ALL true to the original sound of the recording (and I had to lower things a half-step to get the chords to match the song.) The A7 chord I show over the word "of" in the next to last line actually sounds closer to an Fm7 (or perhaps a Bbm9) than to an A7 chord, but the high F note sounds sort of non-melodic to my ear, so I opted for the A7 chord with the natural high E instead. If I were to do a repeat on this one (which is desirable, considering how brief the song actually is) I'd start with the beginning of the second verse, hit the Bbm9 on "of" then modulate back to the A7 before finishing on the G chord.
