Note also the rhythm of the intro/verse is different from the chorus, despite the
chords almost being the same. The rhythm for the verse is something like:

   E        B/E      A/E      B/E
e |0---0---|77777---|5---5---|77777---|
B |0---0---|77777---|5---5---|77777---|
G |1---1---|88888---|6---6---|88888---|
D |2---2---|99999---|7---7---|99999---|
A |2---2---|99999---|7---7---|99999---|
E |0---0---|00000---|0---0---|00000---|

Whereas the chorus rhythm is more like:

   E        B        A        B
e |0-0-0---|2-2-2-2-|0-0-0---|2-2-2-2-|
B |0-0-0---|4-4-4-4-|2-2-2---|4-4-4-4-|
G |1-1-1---|4-4-4-4-|2-2-2---|4-4-4-4-|
D |2-2-2---|4-4-4-4-|2-2-2---|4-4-4-4-|
A |2-2-2---|2-2-2-2-|0-0-0---|2-2-2-2-|
E |0-0-0---|x-x-x-x-|x-x-x---|x-x-x-x-|

although that's a simplification!
