4th, and 5th strings, while the latter part is played with a simple combination of two chords.

           I wanna send this out to Richie Vey
           In his thrift-store corner of the world
                  His soul is my cheap laugh
     Ba-da-ba-ba-ba-da-ba-ba-ba-ba, as the hour grows late

Fourth time around, end on the first D.

Also, if you listen closely, you can hear a gentle riff playing several times throughout 
the song (during the G, D part). Here it is:
