The chords we'll need for this song are: C, C/B, A minor, E Minor, F, and G.

Notice the C/B, a C major chord with a B in the bass. This is easier to understand than you might think. The B note is in the C major scale (the major 7). Playing a B in the bass under a C chord is a passing tone that will lead us to A minor!
