Noise, can you help me?? :)

Love For Sale
(Cole Porter)
This tune is a real workout for guitar due to it being in the key of Bb,
But the important thing is to keep it mucho molto... On the F augmented (F+)
chords, hold for a half note, palm your pick and attack the triads in a
quarter note fashion and stay on top of the beat until the chord change.

I've been performing this song for about 7 years now, but if I have made an
error, please forward all corrections to

Gb Fm Ebm Ab7 Db
heavy tread of the heavy feet that be-long to a lonesome cop
F F7 Bbm Cm7

F7 Bb7 Ab7
When the moon so long has been gazing down on the
F#7 E7 A Ab Ab7
wayward ways of this wayward town that her smile becomes a smirk
F F7 Bb
I go to work

Eb Bbm

I don't think you need my help. It look slike you've done very well. I would absolutely use a capo if I were to play this song, but only because I'm lazy.
