A|-6--6-|-5--5-|
D|-7--7-|-6--6-|
G|-8--8-|-7--7-|

D|-2-|-5-|-7-|-9--|
G|-3-|-7-|-8-|-10-|

( 1:29 - 1:36 )
Start strumming the same chords

A|-1-|-5-|-6-|-8--|
D|-2-|-5-|-7-|-9--|
G|-3-|-7-|-8-|-10-|

Strum F and STOP

Then the song just repeats until the solo ( 2:30 ) where the rythm guitar player plays 
chords
Similiar strumming to the first verse
   F   F    F  F
e|-1--------1-/13-|
A|-1--------1-/13-|
D|-2-/-10-\-2-/14-|
G|-3-/ 10-\-3-/15-|
B|-3-/-8--\-3-/15-|
E|-1--------1-/13-|

And then he just keeps playing F in different ways,
listen to the song. ( 2:42 - 2:51 )


                                         F
You're walking like you never seen the light
F
You're walking like it every night
A#
But I've never seen you dance,
C
and I've never heard you sing
Am                   D   C# C      G  C(Stop)
So how can it mean a single thing

It's all so rudimentary

            F    Am
but tell me baby how does it feel
D                               A#        A
I know you like the roll of the limousine wheel

F                     Am         A#
And they all get them out for
                C
The boys in the band

F                   Am           A#
They twist and they shout for
                    C            F
For the boys in the band
