Repeat the chorus twice

On the final 2 choruses, there’s a third guitar part. I think it goes like this:

E---------------------------------|
B-8---8---8---8---8---8---8---8---|
G---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7-|
D---------------------------------|
A---------------------------------|
D---------------------------------|

G---7---7---7---7---7---7-7-7-7-7-|
D---------------------------------|
A---------------------------------|
D---------------------------------|
  e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e

E---------------------------------|
B-8---8---8---8---8---8---8---8---|

  e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e

And just do that for both of the choruses.
