Part A:  intro

e-----------------------------|b---8--------8----4-------4---|g---9--------9----5-------5---|d---7--------7----3-------3---|a---8------8------4-----4-----|e-----8-10----------4-6-------|
He plays this chord formation using his thumb on the a string. For the two 8 and 4 on the lower strings, he uses his thumb, and he reaches for the 10 and 6 with his pinky. Easier way:
e----------------------------|b---8-------8----4-------4---|g---9-------9----5-------5---|d---7-------7----3-------3---|a---8---5-8------4---1-4-----|e-----8------------4---------|
Part B: intro and verse
e-------------------------------------------------|b---8-------8----4-------4----4--4-4---6--7--8----|g---9-------9----5-------5----5--6-6---6--7--9----|d---7-------7----3-------3----3--3-3---5--6--7----|a---8---5-8------4---1-4---------------6--7--8----|e-----8------------4----------6-------------------|
if you have small hands, try this:
e--------------------------------------------------|b---8-------8----4-------4---(4)(4)(4)--6--7--8----|g---9-------9----5-------5----5--6--6---6--7--9----|d---7-------7----3-------3----3--6--6---5--6--7----|a---8---5-8------4---1-4------1---------6--7--8----|e-----8------------4-------------6--6--------------|
Part C: bridge to chorus
e----------------------------------------|b----9--9---7--7----------5--5---6--6----|g---10--8---8--6----------6--4---6--6----|d---11--8---9--6----------7--4---6--5----|a------------------(3x)-------------6----|e----9--8---7--6----------5--4---6-------|
Part D: chorus
e------------------------------------------------|b----9---9----8h9----9---9---9--9---9--8----9----|g----8---8----8------8---8---8--8---8--8----8----| (2x)d---10--10----8h10--10--11--11-11--11-11---11----|a---11-------------------------------------------|e--------8--8--------8-----9----9--11---11-------|
Part E: bridge: "round and round..."
e--(8)------------------------------|b---9---8---9---14--13---11----9----|g---8---8---8---13--13---12---10----|d--10---8--10---15--13---13---11----|a---8--10--11---13--15----x----x----|e------------------------13---11----|
if you play it on an acoustic without a cutaway:
e--(8)----------9---8---6---4---|b---9---8---9---9---9---8---6---|g---8---8---8--10---8---8---6---|d--10---8--10---8--10---x---x---|a---8--10--11-----------8---6---|e-------------------------------|(Lyrics taken from http://www.roomforsquares.net/)
