My first tab ever, so this may be incorrect, but it shouldn't be too bad. Maybe I'll

You say the tuning is D standard, but you notate the tab with E tuning. I guess you just mean Drop/open D tuning?

i rather think the verse goes like this:
777...5777
777...5777
555...3555
all u have to do is change every
5 7 7 5
5 7 7 5
7 by 5 and 5 by 3
