This song's time signature is 4/4, each note receives 4 count. The chord progression is a little bit complicated at the end, you can remove the Eb chord in it cause that chord didn't belong in the key we're playing. I don't know why that chord is in this song. it doesn't make sense to me. A passing note maybe?

But you can also include that chord if you wanna play along with the track.
Also watch out in the 3rd verse there's a weird pause there.
