the intro is right, but i think the verse and some of the chorus is wrong

Intro is right, verse is wrong. it's:

e|---|
A|-7-|
D|-9-|
G|-9-|
B|---|
E|---| played over and over

then you change it to
e|---|
A|-7-|
D|-8-|
G|-9-|
B|---|
E|---| If you listen to the song it's pretty easy to understand. then you slide down 2 frets eventually, then another 2.
