This is mostly right, just a couple things:

...The C - Cmaj7 - C7 should just be Cmaj7 the whole time.

...The G7 I believe is a Ddim. When she plays it on guitar though (the recording is piano) she actually just plays an F.

Here's a video of her playing it on guitar so you can see how she does it, which is slightly different from the album version:

I like the C - Cmaj7 - C7 because it gives a sense of movement that can be missing with the straight chord repetition. She gets some variation by emphasizing different notes in the piano work at the start of the album recording, but that's trickier to accomplish with strumming. But yes, you're right, it's less varied on the album.

With the G7 on the verse (the first one) I like it better than an F because it better gets the relationship between the vocal harmony and the sung melody, which is different from the second line of the verse. Again, not totally orthodox, but I dig it. I'll try it with the Ddim, though - hadn't tried that. Thanks for the super thoughtful comment! Sorry I didn't see it sooner.
