I'm quite positive this tab is 100% correct. I asked a teacher at my school (who is in a 
cover band) how he plays the bridge, so I'm quite sure that is how Paul plays it too.

I couldn't tab the timing out, so you have to listen to the song. Also, the 7 in the 
is an optional note, and you can bend instead of sliding if you want.

Then it repeats this:
  C   E   F   F#   G   F   E   D
G|----------------|------------------| play this through 
D|----2-2-3-3-4-4-|5-5-3-3-2-2-------| 'I would like you to dance (Birthday)

I'm pretty sure about all that, except for the # of times you play the last bit of the
