I was asked to have a look at this song again.  I think
Trey's version is very close (I always remember that he 
has seen Jonatha live and I haven't!).  I only made a few
very minor changes.  Many thanks to Trey for tracking down
the correct tuning and initial chord shapes.

I had yet another look at this song.  There were some
things from Trey's original version that I had left out
which do belong, and some additional things that I didn't
hear before that were not in his version.
