The chords of this tune are entirely in the key of G Major.  The melody of this song is a bit complex, so be sure to start at a speed this is slow enough for you to play it through so all the notes are ringing true, and then work on building up speed.  Clear melody notes always beat scales played really fast, at least in my book!
