Gaelic Storm - Courtin In The Kitchen chords

Chords
Transpose
A fun little Gaelic Storm version of a classic.  It is my first attempt
at figuring a song out and, while basic, I hope some may find it of use!
I don't know how to differentiate the barre chords from the open, so I
used the asterisk.  Criticism (improvements) welcome!
