Christy Moore - Biko Drum chords version 1

Chords:
Transpose
Hi All, this is a great song and credit to the person that put it up. 
I've made a few additions/changes to capture Christy's beat on this. 
It's just a half or quarter bar on the second cord on each line but if you listen 
to the song you'll pick it up.
