Estimated Prophet Chords

Here's what I've come up with for this tune. I've benefited from the tab here at rukind and from jdark's tab. I think both of them contain errors, however.

A couple notes on how to read this. First, lower-case letters indicate notes, whereas uppercase letters indicate chords. So the lowercase letters on the bottom of the chords for the intro are individual notes Bobby is playing above the chords. Second, I simplified Jerry's lick during the chorus, since I'm arranging for solo acoustic. See jdark's tab for a more accurate rendering.

Isn't that last chord before the solo a Bb7? (not a D?)

Yes! We have a winner! That was the one chord I wasn't sure about. It would make so much sense to resolve to G via D -- but when has Bobby ever done the easy or obvious thing? Here's a corrected copy of my "chart." (I also corrected a little screw up on the Intro.)
