I think the C/B in the beginning is supposed to be a G, and she may or may not play an Am instead of the first Am7. So you'd play:

C G Am Am7
e|-----------------|
B|---1---0---1---1-|
G|-0---0---2---0---|
D|--2---0---2---2--|
A|3-------0---0----|
e|----3------------|

At least that's what I hear. The rest of the tab is spot on.
