The lyrics are sung over a stretched out E chord played on the 7th fret on the A string. Stretch the E chord by one fret until your index finger reaches the 4th fret on the A string, then go back to the E chord on the 7th fret. The numbers after the E represent the fret number that's stretched from the original E position. If you're familiar with the song, then the strumming patterns will come to you naturally!
