Play this 4x's. (*****listen to the chorus to figure out the exact struming pattern, because it changes slightly when he sings, "Crazy Lady, ..."*****) Bridge:

That's pretty much the whole song, except for a few lead riffs that are played. Again, listen to the song to figure out what parts go where. Have fun!
