Youve Really Got A Hold On Me Chords

I don't know about the previous posting of this song.  The lyrics seem okay, 
but the chord voicings are a little suspect.  Lennon and McCartney might have changed keys, 
but it doesn't seem necessary if they did, given their vocal ranges, and if they did
do a key change, some of the transpositions are still incorrect on the previous posting.  
The Beatles covered it like this. Nonetheless, it's a great song.  Listen to the song for 
timing.  One of these days I'll tab it all out for the board.
