For the most part this song these three chords: E, C, and D. Note that these are the chord SHAPES, as we are using a capo on the third fret. So, when you play that basic open E chord shape, it is sounding out as a G - but I will call out the chords as if we aren't using a capo.

An A chord shows up once in the first verse, and again in the bridge;
an E minor chord is used once in each verse, which adds a nice harmonic twist to the program; and the G chord is used only in the bridge.

So learn the basic progression and you have the song over 1/2 way figured out!
