I have seen several versions of this song in the archives, but I couldn't
really follow them. Here is a simple version that fits the recording:

Notes: - You can see that the Verse repeats. The chord patterns are: A G, F# E, B A, E D, and this is played twice. - I separated the Outro because it doesn’t follow the pattern. You’d expect to play A G at that point. - I don’t usually play all the strings I’ve indicated here. I find just playing the last two strings sounds good enough.
