Verse – the rhythm for this descending guitar part is pretty hard to figure out. 
The trick is to land on the D chord on the last strum of the second G chord (7th fret) 
in this second “bar” and only play the D chord once, then move on to the next G chord 
at the 3rd fret.

     G                          G                    D
E|--10---10----10--10--10---|---7---7---7--7--7--7---5------|

Then, this very quick bright part 

      Gmaj7        D    C                D
E|----10--10--10---10---8--8--8--8--8-/--10-----------|
B|----12--12--12---10---8--8--8--8--8-/--10-----------|
G|----11--11--11---11---9--9--9--9--9-/--11-----------|
D|----------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|

At the end of the 2nd verse, before starting the Bm-Gmaj7 section, 
you play this part at the end of the above “quick, bright” part.

      C                D                      G         Gadd4 G
E|----8--8--8--8--8----10--10--10--10--10-|---3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3----|

D|----------------------------------------|---5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5----|
A|----------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------|--------------------------------------|

Bm-Gmaj7...“You say, ‘ere thrice...” part

       Bm                                 Gmaj7
E|---2--------------------------------|----0--1--1--1---1---0---1---1---1--1----|

Then, (you can use some hammer on notes on the C and D chords)
      C                                   D
E|----0-------------------------------|---2--------------------------------|

Those are all the parts. 
For the outro, just play the intro over and over.
