I listened to this version to get the chords. Hopefully it doesn't differ too much from the version you want to cover.

I entered this with 4-beat bars annotated and the spacing of chords showing which beats they fall on; however, the forum stripped out all the spaces. See below for explanation of how long to play each chord when more than one appears in a measure.

Keep Me in Your Will
Key: B♭

Intro:
E♭ |F |B♭ E♭|B♭ |

Verse:
E♭ |F |B♭ E♭|B♭ |
E♭ |F |B♭ E♭|B♭ |
E♭ |F |B♭ B♭/A|Gm |
E♭ |F |B♭ E♭|B♭ |

Chorus:
D° E♭ |F |B♭ |B♭ |
D° E♭ |C |F |F |
E♭ |F |B♭ B♭/A|Gm |
E♭ |F |B♭ E♭|B♭ |

Some extra notes:
- For the 3rd bar of the verse, I hear E♭ as a passing chord on the 4th beat while the band is playing B♭ for 2 measures. I personally play this as a barre across the D-, G- and B-strings at the 3rd fret (B♭) with my index finger, then add the middle finger at B-string 4th fret and ring finger at D-string 5th fret (E♭) and back to the index finger barre.

- That passing E♭ is only on beat 4 of the measures in which it occurs.

- The B♭/A in bar 11 of the verse is a B♭ chord with a passing-note A in the bass. Technically, it's a B♭ major7, but you really just hear the B♭ being held as the bass note transitions from B♭ to A to G in the G-minor chord in bar 12. The B♭ is played for 2 beats, then B♭/A for 2 beats.

- The D-diminished chord (D°) is the tricky one. This is the same as playing B♭7 (B♭-D-F-A♭), and leads smoothly to the E♭ which follows. However, in listening to the performance I linked, any B♭ (if played) is not really obvious, and the melody hits that A♭ accidental. So I'd suggest playing it as a D-diminished triad, and if you double any note, double the A♭ (the singer will already be hitting it).

- In case it's not clear, the D° and E♭ chords are played 2 beats each.

- The C in the 6th bar of the chorus is the other odd-sounding chord you may have had trouble sorting out. I didn't check closely enough, but it may even be a C7 (C-E-G-B♭). This chord uses the E-natural not in the key of B♭ to lead to the F that follows.

I hope this helps!
