Dick Gaughan – Erin Go Bragh chords

This may not be 100% but I just figured out the chords plainly.  He does hammer on and 
such but I wanted it to be easier than all that.  This is just the basic for beginners... 
such as myself.  I believe it's originally in the key of [Bm] but as follows is the best I can do.
