I've taken the liberty of changing the A7 to A#dim so the chord appears at the bottom of the page. As you can see, there's only a semitone difference (A becomes an A#)but it makes the world of difference. Any beginners can keep playing A7 if they prefer.

Harrison used the diminished chord in a number of his songs and vocal harmonies. Instead of A7, use A#dim. The song and your ears will thank you for it! (look it up under Resources, Chord charts)

I dont think the 'wont take long' needs the A7 or a G7. I play-
G
Really want to show you lord
E7 Am D
That it won't take long, my lord etc
