D|---7------------------------------6-------------------------------------------|
A|---7------------------------------4-------------------------------------------|

D|---4----------------------------2--------------------------------------------|
A|---4----------------------------2--------------------------------------------|
E|---2----------------------------0--------------------------------------------|
    pages turn,      my eyes are glued

etc.

then, you add a measure of D to the end

e|---------5-----------------------------------4--------------------------------|

G|---------6-----------------------------------5--------------------------------|
D|---------7-----------------------------------6--------------------------------|
A|---------7-----------------------------------6--------------------------------|

D|---4------------------------------2-----------------------------7----------------|
A|---4------------------------------2-----------------------------5----------------|
E|---2------------------------------0-----------------------------x----------------|
    drawn, see her in the eyes of   paul,   say it,  I can say no more


So this continues until the solo/break, when you throw in another measure of D, this 
time after the C#m.  This chord progression then continues for the rest of the song, i.e.

e|----5---------------------------------------4------------------------------------|
B|----5---------------------------------------5------------------------------------|
G|----6---------------------------------------6------------------------------------|
D|----7---------------------------------------6------------------------------------|
A|----7---------------------------------------4------------------------------------|
E|----5---------------------------------------x------------------------------------|

D|-------7---------------------4-----------------------------2------------------7--|
