Arrangement Note: Only one note in the original melody did not fit the NAF. This note, the 2nd note of the 8th measure, was altered from a half-holing the bottom finger hole to simply repeating the note prior. This should work fine if you are playing solo. If you are playing this melody along with other musicians, this substitution may not sound correct, i.e., fit their chord change at this note. In this case try substituting a C#, i.e., the same fingering as the 2nd note of the 7th measure. Alternatively, you could could half-hole the bottom finger hole but the series of fingerings in that measure would be awkward.
