This works and is a lot easier with a capo on the 1st fret while playing an E,G,& Asus2 progression using the same format as above. Try it :)

Play F# with E bass on and off with open e and b strings, play the C# note on the B string as reqd. Then A with B bass for intro and outro. (why is outro not a word according to spell check?) Pretty sure its played in Eb, so this ties in with the F start as above. Sorry too lazy to do a tab, maybe some other day.

Also watch that chorus. On the third Yeah, there is a long pause before the "he ain't gonna die" bit - always gets me when reading the lyrics as above. Sure you guys have it nailed though, kia kaha.
