Note:  Jonatha says the tuning for this should be EbBbEbFBbEb
(Eb75255), but tuning up the 2nd string one more whole step
sounds right to me, and it's much easier to make the required
chords.

I'm just giving the basic musical patterns.  Hope you have fun 
putting them together.   It's a great song!
