What's going on here in the chorus section is very similar to the verse. Actually, the only thing that's different from the verse here is that we end on our D instead of the A. Again, the same strumming principles should be applied in the chorus as the verse.

And, as you may also notice in the last verse, we actually have the D turn around as opposed to the other verses. It's an interesting arrangement as a whole because there is almost no difference in the verse and the vocal, and the lyrics and melody even hint to the chorus. This creates a very seamless transition between the to parts and it all almost becomes one big part.

This is a really interesting way of telling a story through song, very common in 60s singer songwriting. Unfortunately not very common these days as the pop format of verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus seems to be the overwhelming winner in any arrangement shootout.
