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... ....T E Q U I L A !!!!!! Sax bit arrange for guitar
