Good job! But, you are right in you're suspician about that first
chord to the chorus section -- it should be a "C" and not an "Am".
Give it a try, you will like what you hear.
So, to the masters that be, here is the .tab file, exactly as I have
downloaded it, except for the appropriate Am to C chord changes:
