Thirsty Merc - In The Summertime tab

This is my first tab, i didn't like the ones already done so here's my version:

I play the chords as barre chords but can be played as open chords, i find it easier to 
barre chords to change between the riff part of the chorus and strumming the chords.


Intro:

 (Dm)  (C)  (Bm) (Bb) (A)  (G)  
 (E)
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-7-7--5-5--4-4--3-3----------------------|
|-5-5--3-3--2-2--1-1--7-7--5-5--3-3--2-2--|
|---------------------5-5--3-3--1-1--0-0--|


    Dm             C
The taxman's taken all my dough,
    Dm             C
and left me in my stately home,
A      G    F     E     Dm  (Play as second part of intro, i.e barre chords)
lazin' on a sunny afternoon.
            C
And I can't sail my yacht,
     Dm          C
he's taken everything I've got.
A        G          F     E    Dm     
(Play as 2nd part of intro)
All I've got's this sunny afternoon.


Chorus:

D                                   G7
Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze,
           C7                           F   A7
I've got a big fat mama tryin' to break me.
      Dm              G7
And I love to live so pleasantly,
Dm                G7   C7
Live this life of luxury,
F           A7         Dm
lazin' on a sunny afternoon,

 (Dm)  (C)  (Bm) (Bb) (A)  (G)  
 (E)

Verse:

   Dm                   C
My girlfriend's run off with my car,
    Dm                C
And gone back to her ma and pa.
A       G        F     E         Dm  (Play as 2nd part of intro)
Tellin' tales of drunkenness and cruelty.
        C
Now I'm sittin' here,
Dm            C
Sippin' at my ice-cooled beer,
A        G          F     E    Dm    
(Play as 2nd part of intro)
All I've got's this sunny afternoon.

 Chorus:

D                               G7
Help me, help me, help me sail away,
           C7                            F    A7
or give me two good reasons why I oughta stay
      Dm              G7
Cuz I love to live so pleasantly,
Dm                G7   C7
Live this life of luxury,
F           A7         Dm
lazin' on a sunny afternoon,
