there are two main licks in this song.

Lick 1, this is after the first B7:

B7-2------2-----|-4-2-h4---2---|-2------------|-4------------|-2------------|-2------------|
Lick 2, this is after the E at the end of each stanza:
E-0------0-------|-0--------0-----|-1-0-h1-----1---|-2--------------|-2--------------|-0--------------|
