Don Williams - Amanda tab

If u guyz wanna impress sombody, tell 'em ur gonna play "Amanda" by Don Williams. 
They'll, of course, assume it's only chords, cause tht's how Williams plays it. 
However, I've written a tab!

This is in Bb so to avoid those trick Bb positions, 
move ur capo up to the 3rd Fret.
If ya don't got a capo, ask me and I'll transpose it to Bb.
(I'll also give u the chord positions, so if prefer rhythm over lead,
 or if u want a friend to join in!)
(Remember underscore ,_____, means hold the note/word longer.)
