Notes:Please Note... if you are playing along with the video
The chord changes occur with the lyrics in keeping with the original version written by Don Gibson. The chord changes in Patsy's version are a little 'looser' as her singing style holds notes for longer keeping her behind the beat - once you get used to the song, you'll get a feel for the changes.
In instances like these, it is sometimes a good idea to listen to the backing band and follow them. Most of you will probably be very familiar with the song anyway, so it should be easy enough to follow.
