I've tabbed the resonator guitar, which is in drop d, and left out the
rhythm guitar. As with most of Colin Hay's music the strumming varies from
repeat to repeat, so I've just tabbed a general framework and you'll probably
going to want to need to listen to the song a few times.
Post suggestions/comments if you wish...
