I'll be the first to say, this has to be the most over-chorded song on the entire web site -- and yes, I know, that's saying something. It's got a chord change on literally every single syllable, plus a few extra. The idea here is for the chords to carry the entire song, when played strictly as an instrumental. If you're singing along, you can honestly think of any chord at any point as strictly optional -- or better yet, eliminate virtually all of them any only change where you feel the need. Whatever chord you use, at whatever point it is shown here, will work with the melody.
