This should get you pretty close.....

C-B-Bb-A-Ab---Bb---C---Dm G

C--------------------------- Am
Somewhere there should be
For all the world to see
A statue of a fool made of stone
C---------------Am-----------Em ---------------- C7
An image of a man who let love slip through his hands
And then just let him stand there all alone

-------C------------ Am
And there on his face
A gold tear should be placed
To honor the million tears he's cried
-------C--------------- Am
And in his eyes would show
So everyone would know
Concealed is a broken heart inside
So build a statue and lord build it high
So that all can see

Then inscribe the World's greatest fool
And name it af-ter me

nice job, Tommy. That's how I do it and if they follow along with a youtube link or the CD, they should hear all those changes very, very easily. Again, good job!
