When you say "head", you mean melody, right? So don't worry about the chords right now, just work on the melody. Get a recorded version by a singer, I'd suggest either Billie Holiday or Frank Sinatra, and listen to the melody MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY times. All the time, over and over. Learn the lyrics.
All of that listening gives your fingers the sound to shoot for, you're not just playing dots on a page and a geographical area on the fingerboard you're trying to MAKE THAT SOUND RIGHT THERE. Having the lyrics in your ear helps phrase the melody and helps you remember if you're going to first ending or second ending.
But there aren't any shortcuts, the only way that stuff gets internalised is by hearing it a lot and playing it a lot.
