Guitar tabs with lyrics

SONG: People
ARTIST: Jimmy Cliff featuring Sting
ALBUM: Fantastic Plastic People
YEAR: 2002

Since it's the summer vacation, I decided to post the tab of a reggae tune to this
website, mainly because reggae has quite a sunny rhythm and has been long associated with
summer if you know what I mean.
This one is played in the key of C/Am.

This is the main melody for both the intro and chorus;

During the chord sequence and considering this is a reggae song, I find it's best to use
barre chords.
This is the chord sequence for the Intro and chorus:
Dm////|////|C////|Dm////|
For the verse;
F////|////|C////|Dm////

Here is the whole song;
