I'm pretty sure this is correct. If you listen to the song you WILL get it.
Remember those chords aren't one long note. You are supposed to strum over and over.

your B chord is wrong B is -4--- also A is -2---
-4--- -2---
-2--- -0---
also he strums full chord on the E making it -0---
-0---
-1---
-2---
-2---
-0---
and his strum pattern is more of a (lets say we're on the B chord)

-----------
----4-4-4--
----4-4-4--
-2--2-2-2-- on all chords, but with his up and down stroke pattern...
