For the intro the chords are this i think
---x--x-x-x-x-x-----------E
---3--3-3-3-3-3-----------B
---0--0-0-0-0-0-----------G
---0--0-0-0-0-0-----------D
---3--3-3-3-3-3-----------A
---x--x-x-x-x-x-----------E
And then on the last time of the intro

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

Enjoy
