    I used the tab on Songsterr and used that to play to the song and this is now how I play it. Sounds good with the recording. I'll be playing it at rehearsal this Friday and hope it sounds good there.

    Code:
    Intro
    |--------9-7-----|
    |----6-9-----9---|
    |--7-----------7-|
    |----------------|
    
    Verse 1 & 2
    |----6-9-9-6-----|---------10--------|----4-7-7-4-----|--------7-------|
    |7-7---------9-7-|----7-10----10-7---|5-5---------7-5-|----4-7---7-4---|
    |----------------|8-8--------------8-|----------------|5-5-----------5-|
    |----------------|-------------------|----------------|----------------|
    
    |----6-9-9-6-----|---------10--------|--------9-------|----6-9-9-6-----|
    |7-7---------9-7-|----7-10----10-7---|----6-9---9-6---|7-7---------9-7-|
    |----------------|8-8--------------8-|7-7-----------7-|----------------|

    .. fun song to play ... we do all 50's 60's music with one group, and I play it similar to this, but with two guitars and a piano I tend to use the E and A string for the intro and during the verses to help balance and sit a bit better ... the chorus is almost as written here though, and that gets fun ... I usually find myself ending the verses up around the 12th fret so I can get a good slide down to the busy chorus riff too ... creates a nice effect for us ... enjoy!!
