There are two guitar parts at the intro.
The rhythm is the same as the verse, 
the lead is built off of the Bm pentatonic, the notes are:


Listen to it, it'll take about two seconds to figure it out.

Verse 1:

Bm     G      Bm         G
I heard living is easy to do

Am           C     D  G                    D     C
the pains you wanted, I bought them for you

note: the D and the last C are transitional chords, a quick
      down-up-down-up and then change to the next chord

Bm        G    Bm          G
Graceless lady, you know I am

Am              C       D G                D
You know I can't let you, slide through my hands


Am   C     D G        F        C   D
Wild Horses, couldn't drag me away

Am   C     D G        F        C
Wild Horses, couldn't drag me away

(again those D chords are transitional)

Verse 2:

Bm            G       Bm            G 
I watched you suffer, a dull aching pain

Am           C    D G              D    C
Now you've decided, to show me the same

Bm             G      Bm             G
Those sweeping exits, whoa off stage lines

Am              C      D G               D
could make me be bitter, and treat you unkind


Verse 3:

Bm       G           Bm          G
I know I dreamed you, a sin and a lie

Am       C       D G                    D     C
I have my freedom, but I don't have much time

Bm            G        Bm           G
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried

Am           C      D G          D 
Let's do some living, after we die

last line sung as:
Wild horses, I'm gonna ride them some day

Either fade it out or end with a: D(transitional) G

Note: A quick listen to the album will show you what I mean
      about those transitional chords. Also, I did my best to
      show where the changes fall, but as you play it you'll
      get the nuances. Some of the changes just hang a bit longer
      than others.  

Glad I could give some back to the family.
