I've looked at all these tabs and no one has this exactly right. You can see in live videos, Nelson and his guitarist play an Em9 A D instead of the more common IV chord G A D on the last phrase of the verse and chorus, i.e. "didn't look the same" and "have to please yourself".

Try it, it breaks up a rather mundane and unoriginal chord pattern with a prettier chord. The band America used to use that chord a lot (such as on the song "Old Virginia", which uses the same Em9 A D phrase).

You can play it prettier, 022032; or easier, 020002 or however you want:
E root / B min 3th / G 5th / D dom7 / F# dom9
