Notes :  There are a few versions of this song, one starts with guitar only and the other has an A Cappella intro and then guitar. Both should be easy to play using the chords below. Most of the chords below would be aimed at guitar but there are keyboards in this song, mainly in the background and during the arpeggio bit before the ” I’m a man with a one track mind …” section.
