There is no chorus in the song, just the head, so I'll give you those:

Emaj13 A6 Emaj13 A6 B6 D6 G6 Bb6-A6

Each is for 1 bar except the Bb6 and A6 which is both in one. This pattern repeats itself and in the solo it is just E then A alternating until teh Outro (which is the same as the head.

i'm guessing its the maj13 chords. by chorus i meant the part that is played the most and the same the majority of the time, the refrain. thanks though. i really like the feel it has.

No problem. Most of the song follows that pattern throughout. It is truly one of the greatest and most mellow songs written. You should check out a live version on youtube if you haven't

I have a book written by Craig Hopkins that has a page sized photocopy in it of the actual piece of paper that stevie ray vaughan wrote out the chords he played on. Their are a few diagrams showing how to voice them and then a few chord changes written out. If you want i can scan those for you tommorow at work.

No worries! And yes, still interested, if it's not too much trouble. (Now my wife is REALLY going to be pissed when I start trying to practice those over and over, and over again.)
Thanks again in advance.

I don't know anything about anything yet when it comes to guitars, but if I can return the favor somehow let me know.

i think srv would have stumbled on these chords from the hendrix chord, it seems logical because he was uneducated player, move your third n fourth fingers up a fret from the hendrix, then hold that shape and move to the oppropriate positions and there you have lenny. thats how i got it anyway.
