Close! This isn't quite right though.

First off, you're right that it's in B major. Gary plays it in standard tuning with a Capo 2. To be consistent with what you have, I'll write the chords in B major (all of them are barre chords anyway).

For the verse, it's actually E7 -> G#m until it hits the F# chord. If you want to play it a little funkier, you can accentuate the 5th on the high E string for the E7 chord. Mix it up, play it muted on the off beat, then voice the 5th, sometimes hammer on or just straight up play the 6th (i.e. the chord looks like x79879 (EADGBe))

Lastly, the bridge is actually just a walk down the scale, so when he says "This time she's leaving for sure" it's...

E7 -> D#m7 -> C#m7 -> B7 for each line.

"I'll be alone" actually ends on a B7 chord. Then you just finish out like you've specified.

A lot of this song is about syncopation in the right hand and subtle mutes and accents on the high harmonies in the left. These are pretty straightforward soul chords, so try to brighten them up sporadically with a 5th or 6th on the high E string now and again. Have fun!

I lied. I've been listening to a live recording which does a lot more syncopation on the right hand (IMO much more fun...but less of a "smooth" feel). You can match the album more closely by playing an extremely straight rhythm guitar and getting a good clean, warm bass groove to back it.
It loses a lot of the flavor if you're not playing with a grooving bass, though, which is why the texture helps if you're playing alone.
