The Rumjacks – Green Ginger Wine chords

Chords
Transpose:
"Green Ginger Wine" By The Rumjacks on their album Gangs of New Holland. 

Absolutely love this song, and, assuming you can get a rough enough girl, a GREAT duet. Heh.

*IMPORTANT NOTE*
At the interlude, you'll notice there are repeats of the same chord. Each chord 
you see is the one you play on that beat of each measure. At one interlude, the 
chords ring for the most part. Those beats of ringing are represented by a hyphen 
"-". Play it with the music and you'll see what I mean.
