Well as a more experienced player now I look back at this melody line with a smile, cuz i used to struggle a lot with the previous song, the "Aloha Oe", which in my opinion is way harder than "Brown Eyed Girl". The song isn't that hard, but probably you are frustrated about it because you can't get it right for so long time. What I reccomend is try to go for rythm path for a little variety of your playing, i know it might not be something you want to do right now, since you chose lead (and probably play an electric guitar too!), but down that path there are power chords which sound awesome, and if you add a little bit of distortion, you might just feel like a rock star, even for 5 minutes! After a while come back to this song, your practice on the rythm section will pay off while playing leads trust me! If you really don't wanna touch that road, thinking to yourself that rythm guitar is for losers who would play every day at a campfire singing "Sweet home Alabama" or something, take a few steps back on the lead path, master the songs you already played, and get back to that lovely "Brown Eyed Girl!
Little side note, stop saying about yourself "begginer" and start saying "BeWinner" instead, cuz this is who you are right now. You played so many awesome tunes, take a minute to appreciate that!
