In the intro and verse, Steven hammers on on the 1st D chord, high E string, from 0 to 2.
Also on the Bm chord on the A string, from 0 to 2.
In the first line of the verse, he plays a 3/4 measure of Bm, basically, he goes 
to the A slightly early

A   Amaj7   F#m   E   D   D/C#   Bm   Bm (A)

[Verse 1]
       A                           Amaj7 
I set out on a great adventure,
                      F#m                                       E 
The day my Father started leading me home,
                       D                                                 D/C# 
Said there’s gonna be mountains to climb,
                                  Bm                            A
And valleys we’re gonna go through.

           A                       Amaj7
But I had no way of knowing,
                 F#m                                   E 
Just how hard this journey could be,
Cause the valleys are deeper
               D/C#                                    Bm         Bm slide to C#m momentarily
And the mountains are steeper than I ever would have dreamed

D                                 F#m
    But I know we’re gonna make it,
D                                  F#m     E
    And I know we’re gonna get there soon
D                             F#m                                        Esus2      Emaj9
    And I know sometimes it seems like we’re going the wrong way
D                              Dm (strum Dm once)
    But it’s just the long way home

A   Amaj7   F#m   D

[Verse 2]
A   Amaj7   F#m   E   D   D/C#   Bm   Bm (A)
Some rocks on my shoes,
Fears I wish I could lose,
That make the mountains so hard to climb,
And my heart gets so heavy with the weight of the world sometimes.
There’s a bag of regret,
Should’ve beens and not yets,
That keep on dragging around,
And I can hardly wait till the day I get to lay them all down.

D  F#m  D   F#m   E   D F#m   Esus2   Emaj9   D   Dm
Well I know that day is coming
And I know it’s gonna be here soon
And I know I won’t turn back even if the whole world 
Says I’m doing the wrong way
Cause it’s just a long way home

Bm               C#m                            C#m 
       When we can’t take another step,
                           F#m                    E                        D
The Father will pick us up and carry us in His arms,
                                      Bm                                  C#m
        And even on the best days, He says to remember we’re not home yet,
                       Esus2                    Emaj9
So don’t get too comfortable,
                      D                         Dm (strum once)
Cause really all we’re is just pilgrims passing through.

A   Amaj7   F#m   E   D   D/C#   Bm   Bm

[Alternative Chorus]
D                                F#m
    Well I know that day is coming,
D                              F#m     E 
    And I know it’s gonna be here soon,
D                      F#m                              Esus2                           Emaj9
   I’ll keep on singing and believing what all of my songs say,
D                                    F#m
   Cause our God has made a promise,
D                                   F#m       E 
   And I know that everything He says is true,
D                              F#m                                Esus2 Emaj9 
  And he promised He would never ever leave us
                     D           Dm                      Esus2   Emaj9   
He’s gonna lead us,     He’ll lead us home,
D                   Dm (Strum Dm once)   A        Amaj7
Every single step of the long way       home,
F#m                        E 
   So keep on, we’re gonna make it,
D                        Dm
   We’re just taking the long way home,
A                     Amaj7
    Keep on we’re gonna make it,
F#m                E
    I know we’re gonna make it,
D                   Dm (strum Dm once)
    It’s just a long way home.

A   Amaj7=A (strum A once)

This does not sound quite right. I think the F#m is incorrect. Good attempt! This key is really hard to get right.

I don't think it's a perfect carbon copy, but I definitely love playing this version with all the chords you've provided. I think the only area with issue is the end of each chorus (although I can't identify how to fix it).
