Riff 1 is the main riff, play twice at the beginning

Play Fig. 1 four times for the verse

Play Riff 2 twice through between the first verse and the chorus

Fig. 2 is the entire chorus

Play Riff 1 twice between the chorus and second verse

Play Fig. 1 four times for the verse again

Play Riff 3 twice through between second verse and chorus

Play Fig. 2 for chorus again

I'm not not exactly sure what the guitar plays right before the piano part, 
but it sounds something like this:
|-----------------------------------
|-7----------7-----7----------7-----
|-7--7-----7---7---7--7-----7---7---
|----7--9--------7----7--9--------7-
|-5----------------5----------------
|----5----------------5-------------

Then there's the piano solo, which you can play like this on guitar:
|------------------------------------------------------------------
|-------------------8-8-8-7----------------------------8-8-8-7--10-
|-----7-9-7--7-9-7----------7----7-9--------7-9---7-9--------------
|-7-7--------------------------7-------5--7-----7------------------
|------------------------------------------------------------------
|------------------------------------------------------------------

or down an octave like this:

|-----------------------------------------------------------------
|-----------------------------------------------------------------
|-----------------------------------------------------------------
|-------------------5-5-5-4---------------------------5-5-5-4--7--
|-----5-7-5--5-7-5----------5----5-7-------5-7---5-7--------------
|-5-5--------------------------5------3--5-----5------------------


Then after the piano solo, before the final chorus, the guitar plays 

something like this:

|---------------------------------------------------------------
|---------------------------------------------------------------
|-----7-----7-----7-----7-----7-------7-----7-----7-----7-----7-
|---------------------------------------------------------------
|-5-5---5-5---5-5---5-5---5-5----5-5-5---5-5---5-5---5-5---5-5--
|---------------------------------------------------------------


over another part that sounds kinda like this:

|---------------------------------
|---------------------------------
|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-6-6-6-6-
|---------------------------------
|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-4-4-4-4-
|---------------------------------

Then play this four times for the final chorus:

|-----------------------------------------------------------------
|-----------------------------------------------------------------
|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9---------------------------------
|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-
|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-
|---------------------------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-

and you end on
