You have the key too low. After you play the intro, it should go into a G major chord, then, proceed to an E7. Keep playing the E7, but if you want to play that and every time you play it you should hit on the low E string, 1st fret. Then, play the G again and then an A major. Do E7 again and.. well, whatever. I will post a tab on this.
