This is about as close as I can get to playing Daughter in standard tuning

The main riff uses G and A. Probably best to listen to the song for the pattern


[Verse]
G    A G  A   G            A    G           A                        G
 alone... listless... breakfast table in an otherwise empty room
 A     G       A   G      A     G           A   
 young girl... violins... center of her own attention
G      A     G                     A     G
 mother reads aloud, child tries to understand it
A     G         A
 tries to make her proud

For this Pre-Chorus bit,you play:

E|--0--0-0-0--0-0-0-0-|
B|--3--3-3-3--2-2-2-2-|
G|--0--0-0-0--0-0-0-0-|
D|--2--2-2-2--2-2-2-2-|
A|--------------------|
E|--------------------|

(Again, you might want to listen to the song for the pattern)

 the shades go, down it's in her head
 painted room... can't deny there's something wrong...

Then return to the main riff for the Chorus

[Chorus] 
G      A     G               A  G        
 don't call me daughter, not fit to
     A   G   A                G
 the picture kept will remind me
G      A    G                A  G
 don't call me daughter, not fit to
     A   G   A                G
 the picture kept will remind me
       A
 don't call me...

This part is played the same as the Pre-Chorus 

 she holds the hand that holds her down
 she will... rise above...

I didn't tab the solo here, but Stone seems to play the main riff through it.

(Play the chords softly here)
 
G      A     G
 don't call me daughter, not fit to
G      A     G
 the picture kept will remind me
G      A     G           
 don't call me daughter, not fit to be
G      A     G    G      A     G               
 the picture kept will remind me

(Volume picks up for this chorus)
G      A     G               A  G  
 don't call me daughter, not fit to
     A   G   A                G
 the picture kept will remind me
G      A     G               A  G 
 don't call me daughter, not fit to be
     A   G   A                G
 the picture kept will remind me
       A
 don't call me...

Pre-Chorus part is played here, after 4 repetitions, mike carries on with some
other stuff while stone plays this through to the end: 
 

E|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|------------------------|
D|--2h3-2h3-2h3-2h3-2h3h2-|
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|

 the shades go down
 the shades go down
 the shades go, go, go...

This is supposed to be in key of G. Putting the A and the G in the way you did is intermixing two keys: key of G and key of D or A. The chord progression is a simple G2, C2, and the minors are an Em and an Em6 progression
