The tune starts off with a free time intro that establishes the chord progression. The progression is based off a country blues, using the I, IV, and V chords (E, A7, and B7). Since there is no tempo or pulse, you cue your strums off the vocal. The strums are very slow and relaxed, not quite arpeggiated. It sets the mood of the song perfectly.
