Decemberists - Foregone chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
So I'm not going to take the time to write out the lyrics and everything. I just really 
like this song and didn't see chords online anywhere.

Key of A-major:

Verse:
A | A | E | Dmaj7

Prechorus/Chorus:
F#m | D | E | E7 | A

In the chorus, he plays the A with the lyric "foregone."

I haven't tried this at all, but it sounds like the guitar is playing with a capo on the 
2nd fret. So the transposed chords are
Verse:
G | G | D | Cmaj7
Chorus:
Em | C | D | D7 | G
It sounds like he plays the verse holding the 3rd fret of the highest 2 strings the 
whole time (so E and A). Like this
---3---3---3---3----------------|
---3---3---3---3----------------|
---0---0---2---0----------------|
---0---0---0---2----------------|
---2---2-------3----------------|
---3---3------------------------|
So the D is more of a Dsus4 and C is like Cadd9.


Like I said, I haven't played this at all, so if there's anything wrong with it, let me know.
