First the twangy guitar intro while keyboards hold a long A major chord. Hammer on with 
3rd finger in the last bar:

|---------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|
|--8s10(hold)---|--8s78-8(hold)|--8-8-8-(hold)-|---------------|
|--9------------|--7-----9------|--7---7--------|-----------0---|
|--7------------|--9-----11-----|--9---9--------|--------0h2----|
|--0------------|--0-----0------|--0---0--------|---------------|
|---------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|

Barre the A chord with 3rd finger, strum the rhythm and do the slides with the 3rd 
Then this is easily playable:

  A               Dsus2           Esus4           Dsus2
|-0-------------|-0-------------|-0-------------|-0-------------|

|-2--------2s4--|-4--------4s6--|-6--------2s4--|-4------0h2----|
|-0-------------|-0-------------|-0-------------|-0-------------|
|---------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|

In the third bar barre on the 9th fret with the 3rd finger, and in the last bar barre on 
7th fret with the 1st finger

  A               Dsus2           Esus4
|-0-------------|-0-------------|-0-------9-7---|-10-9-7-9-7----|

On with the verses. A, Dsus2, Esus4 chord shapes as per the intro. The other chords are 
follows, in order of appearance. Note there are additional A and Dsus2 versions,
denoted an asterisk, use them where indicated for a more authentic sound.
Likewise the non-standard D chord. There is also this little riff, which
is a variation on the Dsus2 chord 
and connects lines of the verse where indicated by (Riff) in the song.
