And you now have all the bits you need to know to play this song. It's relatively easy, just note that the chords for the verse are played mainly with upstrokes to give it a swing-type feel. The lyrics posted in this node seem to be correct, so use them. I believe this is the first tab of this anywhere on the net at the time of writing, and comments and suggestions are much appreciated. /msg me in the chatterbox if you have anything to add to this tab.
