Verse (0:13)

Basically play through the above twice more!

Chorus (0:39) (notes mostly palm muted but listen to the record as well to get the idea 
also some of the strumming, but the chorus follows this sequence.  In the second chorus 
doesn't palm mute but you really have to listen to know when and where)

Then to begin the next verse a little bit different than the usual lick

D|-2---/6-4-2----|
A|---2--------2--|
E|---------------|

By the end of the second chorus you get the intro again played once and then you get a 
muted chord version of the verse (second time played is not palm muted though, again you 
listen to the record to be aware of that).

Verse 2 (1:16)

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1—-1—-1—-1---2—-1-|

E|-------------------------------------------------------------------4--4--0--0—-0---0—-0-|

The rest of the songs verses follow the same chorus pattern until you get to the outro 
changes the chord sequence.

To summarise the song parts

Intro (Intro sequence) x1
Verse  (Intro sequence) x2
Chorus (Chorus sequence (palm mute)) x1
Pre-verse (Intro sequence) x1
Verse 2 (Intro chords(palm mute first time)) x2
Chorus 2 (Chorus sequence) x1
Verse 3 (Palm mute Intro chords) x1
Chorus 3 (Chorus sequence) x1
Outro 1 (Outro sequence) x3
Outro 2 (Second part of chorus ie. C# minor, A major, E major, B major part) x1

Finish on E major.

Sorry if that sounds confusing I tried to make it easy to understand without having to 
out the whole thing which would just be unnecessary.  Just play through a few times to 
the jist of when which parts are used where.  It should be ok! Really
