F# and A notes are emphasised during fingerpicking over E chords in verses, 'A' chords in the verses also feature a sus4 frequently, in fact many of the chords have other 'colourings' over the top of them, I'll (bracket) chords that I suggest work for the first verse and chorus, but here's as good as I can get without getting hugely confusing trying to write out exactly which notes feature in which chords, because the variations change frequently. Best to just listen along with the recording and make your own conclusions on what to emphasise, this should be good enough though (hopefully...) the song's just as good with the root chords played, so enjoy!
