Missed that one...

Well, I just listen to my tape, and the guitar part is perfect DVR: I could work on this fancy fingerpicking all my life time, and of course never get it. It's that trick on the bass notes I can't figure out. BUT, here's the chords, with capo on the first fret:

(A)Mama bought a rooster, (F#m) she thought it was a duck.
(B7)She brought him to the table with his legs straight up.
(E)In came the children with the cup and a glass,
(A)To catch the liquor from his yas yas yas.

The turn around on the last line goes like this (single notes, add half tone with the capo, and alternate bass A/E): A, C#, D, D#,E, D, C#, A.
Singing over this will give you hours of happiness!
