The E should be augmented and with a flat 13th wich is the same as the 5th.
I would say a E+add5 (x76557) to have the simplest chord's name. Also you can use the fretted Am chord (577555) and move it to a E+add5/A (576557). In order to respect the original chords, the Dm9 should rather be a simple Dm. But I really enjoyed singing the song with the Dm9. Fun.
Oh and @Glasskatten, there's no good version for the moment, I've tested them all, and they all have some big mistakes. I'm gonna do one right now.
