Valentina Lisitsa on Searching for the Rachmaninoff Affinity

When Valentina Lisitsa came to Stockholm to play Rachmaninoff’s third piano concerto, it was a welcome fact not only for all her fans but also for anybody well aware of the enormous challenge this concerto means for any performer. In 2013 Lisitsa released her Complete Rachmaninoff Concertos (including the Paganini Rhapsody) on Decca and therefor this was a rare chance for Piano Street’s Patrick Jovell not to talk to her about YouTube but… Sergei Rachmaninoff.

why not just use "I am the very model of a modern major general"? It's the same thing, basically, and I'm sure SOMEONE here has it.

Yes, but if you wish to perform the song like Tom, they are pretty useless and are really for playing it solo rather than as an accomp.  It's in C major and that's about all you need to know...I realised this when I saw the music. 
Listen to his accompaniment, it's very simple and you will probably be able to pick  out the notes and chords.  The simplicity allows maximum concentration on the words.  The only other helpful thing on the music was the instruction at the beginning which says 'as fast as possible'.

If you still want the notes, pm me with your e-mail and I'll scan them to you.
