Tabs: Cheers theme song

I told @greg_benson1501 on Twitter that people dig hearing old TV show songs on Ukulele.  Now, this is assuming that you are roughly my age and you know that there was a show before Frazier.  If you aren't familiar with the show, Frazier, then I apologize for wasting your time, because you are gonna think this is lame.  I have to say, though, that around the drunken campfire, this song and the Fact's of Life themesong (or possibly Diff'rent Strokes) are my biggest winners.

Cheers
Theme Song

Bb                     F
Making your way in the world today
      Bb                F
Takes everything you've got
Bb                  F
Taking a break from all your worries
Bb              F
Sure would help alot
G#           G           Cm    F
Wouldn't you like to get away?
F                     Bb
Sometimes you want to go
Bb         G#              Eb   F
Where everybody knows your name
Bb        G#              Eb   F
And their always glad you came
Dm                   Eb
You want to be where you can see
     Dm                   Eb
Your troubles are all the same
Dm
You want to be
      Eb        F     Bb
where everybody knows your name

Bb  F  Bb  F  Bb

Here are the fingering for those chords:
(note: http://www.ezfolk.com/uke/chords/ is a great resource for uke chords)
Bb = 3211
F = 2010
G# = 1343
G = 0232
Eb = 3331
Dm = 2210

This might look a little tricky, but if the G# gives you grief then just play it as 0343 but mute the open string. Oh snap. I just thought of one that would have been easier to post. I'll do that next. But, that assumes you know what "Charles in Charge" is.
