This is mostly right. (1) The first two Bm chords shown in the chorus should be B major for sure. (2) The end of the chorus is not single strum - G and Bm are each held for a full four-beat bar.

(3) At the beginning of the chorus, the chords are G - B - E major (for sure!). Also on the words sunny (G) day, (B) oh (E major) yeah!

I think a B7 sounds better, and I think a B7 was played when I saw Paul Simon Live
