Progression I 
The full eight-bar progression is played like this: 

  C                                                 F

Sound is important 
Quo-songs are often based on the boogie-woogie shuffle (tripletfeel). This song however, is based on a straight-four rock feel (straight eights). You have to play the first note staccato (short) and the second one legato (keep it ringing as long as possible) to get that typical Rick Parfitt rythm-sound. See next example. Dots (.) mean staccato, underscore (__) is legato. You also have to emphasize the notes with the dots.

If you find difficulty in doing this, you first can try it without the pinky. Practice slow at first and gradually speed up your tempo. 
  
Progression II 
Further on the F-chord, in the fourth bar of the progression, is replaced by a F#dim7. Play the full progression now like this: 


  C                                                 F
E|------------------------|------------------------|------------------------|

The last thing I want to say about the rythm is that you have to keep time. Hit the strings exactly on the time-spot.
