================================================================================

CHORDS:                     LICK:
    D   G   A   A7  (Ab)       1 2 3 4   1 2 + 3 4
E|--2---3---5---5----4--|   E|---------|-----------|
B|--3---3---5---5----4--|   B|---------|-----------|
G|--2---4---6---6----5--|   G|---------|-----------|

A|--5---5---7---7----6--|   A|-5-------|---------7-|
E|------3---5---5----4--|   E|---------|-----------|

The original recording was sped up and sounds 25 cents sharp.

BASIC RHYTHM
          1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
   Bass   .     . .     . .     . .     .
  Snare       *       *       *       *
Cowbell     '   '   '   '   '   '   '   '
 Guitar       /     /         /     /

The organ adds passing chords in the VERSE:

  1   2   3 + 4    1   2   3 + 4    1   2   3 + 4    1   2   3 + 4 +
 |D       C D     |D       C D     |D       C D     |A       G A   Ab|
 "Just a little..."

  1   2   3   4 +  1   2   3   4 +  1   2   3   4 +   1   2   3   4
 |G             Ab|A             Ab|G             A  |A              |
 "Will I be..."

The recurring BREAK figure has a quarter-note feel and
the A-chord is syncopated.

    1     2     3  +  4  +  1   2   3   4
    D           G        A7
    /     /     /  /     /
   "Que   se-   ra    se-ra"

In the 'double-time' SOLO the snare and "hey" play on
the 'up-beats' as per the cowbell part.

A good version Wayne is right back, in those days the producers would speed things up
after a full band recording then add the vocals.
Same with the easybeats records which makes them so hard to try and play along with.
another good job from the outer limits. Rockin Ron Melbourne.
