Paul Mccartney - Live And Let Die chords version 1

Chords
Transpose
I'm posting two versions, one version with the raw untransposed chords that are 
played on piano in the actual song,
 and another version with a capo so that open chords can be played on guitar more easily,
 but the first version sounds more accurate as it follows the voicing in the actual song.

!SCROLL DOWN FOR CAPO VERSION!

Key: F# Major , 4/4 timing (mostly)

Here is what the chords look like when lined up in bars with the beats written at the top.
This is to help with the timing if you're not sure about it.
Keep playing the chord and count out the beats until the chord changes:

Intro Verse: (bpm=61, this is the piano part at the start)
|1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &   |1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &   |
|F#              A#m             |B               C#      Ddim    |
|F#              A#m             |B               C#      Ddim    |
|F#              A#m             |B               G#7             |
|C# |C#5 D#5 E5 -rest- | ...Say live and let...
Part immediately after verse: (bpm=70, slightly faster, orchestra comes in) Be careful of the timing! |1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & |1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & | |F# B |Cdim F#sus4 | |F# B |Cdim | <--this bar is in 3/8 timing Interlude (bpm=150ish, much faster, a distorted guitar comes in playing the F#5 power chord 244xxx . There's not much else in this part chord-wise)
Middle verse: (bpm=75 , half as fast as interlude)|1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & |1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & ||B |F# ||C#7 |D#5 E5 ... || --whole bar rest-- |
And then it goes back to the interlude, and then replay the intro verse again and then back to the interlude, when then it fades out at the end. Where lyrics exist, Here are the chords with the lyrics:
F# A#m B C# DdimWhen you were young and your heart was an open book
F# A#m BYou used to say live and let live
C# Ddim F#(You know you did, you know you did you know you did)
F# A#m B G#7But in this ever changing world in which we live in
C# C#5 D#5 E5...makes you give in and cry
F# BSay live and let die
Cdim F#sus4live and let die
F# Blive and let die
Cdim ....live and let die
--Play F#5 all the way through the interlude--
BWhat does it matter to ya
F#when you got a job to do
C#7you gotta do it well
D#5 E5 .........you gotta give the other fellow hell...

G#dim : 4564xx D7 : xx0212 G5 : 355xxx A5 : 577xxx Bb5 : 688xxx F#dim : 2342xx Csus4 : x3301x or x33011 G7 : 320001 C5 : x355xx Here is what the chords look like when lined up in bars with the beats written at the top.
