The melodica and banjo keep playing that (hang on the E note on the last measure) while 
guitar comes in with an E
Ryan has a very loose playing style and he continues to strum an E while playing the

After striking the E chord on "roots" the guitar strums muted strings, the banjo plays 
E on upstrokes and the melodica plays the turnaround to the intro

Repeat intro section

VS2: repeat the VS section twice

CHS2: repeat the CHS section

repeat intro riff 3 times and end on E

Bridge:

E                G              A
Mother why'd you have to go and clip my golden wings
          G            A                E
I'm gonna fly off this building all the same
E                      G             A
You put me down in the darkest well, still that water stings
          G            A                E
I'm gonna fly off this building all the same ... etc

Once the vocals kick in on the bridge the banjo plays:
"Mother why'd you... I'm gonna fly... all the same...
e-7---7---7---7---7---7---7---3---3---3---3---7---7---7---|
B---8---8---8---8---8---8---8---5---5---5---5---8---8---8-|

VS3: play VS section once

CHS3: play the CHS section once but play each chord by striking 5
      downstrokes until the B7 and play that with a slow rake

Outro:
"All the roots...  try to,  way back home
         E         A        G        E
       e-0-0-0-0-I----------3--3--3--0--0-|
       B-0-0-0-0-I-2--2--2--0--0--0--0--0-|
       G-1-1-1-1-I-2--2--2--0--0--0--1--1-|

       A-2-2-2-2-I-0--0--0--2--2--2--2--2-|
       E-0-0-0-0-I----------3--3--3--0--0-|

Play the A G E part three more times then play the intro riff one time and end on E

There's a lot going on in this one ... I tried to make it as clear as I could ... hope it helps
