I haven't much to contribute--the chords are pretty much the ones I use, with or without the variations--except to say that Mike of Northumbria's diminished chord is an absolute "must know", because the "F F#dim/ C-B7-Bb&-A7/D7 D7/ business is used as the bridge for a huge number of jazz/pop standards.
This is a great song to play, and it passes for blues, jazz, folk, pop, and whatever, so you can use it wherever you go to good effect. Not many songs are that flexible.
