Note: the recording doesn't have guitar chording for
the last bit of the bridge (the Gm part), just the
bass, drums & sax, but you can play as above and you
can play a full 8th fret C major barre chord at the
end for punctuation.


Then go back to the F & Eb chord pattern until the
next bridge.

After the last bridge end on the F & Eb chord pattern
again but at the last do a quick F  Eb   F change,
ending on the F chord. 

and...
