Your question is a bit unclear. Are you talking about the intro section? Or are you asking if you can play the verse using barre chords as opposed to open chords?

For the intro? They're all clearly an open D major shape. The first is D, followed by C, then A. In the second bar, it goes down to the D your already familiar with.

If you want to be really technical, they're all 'major second inversion' because the 5th of each is the bass note.

They're triads - 2nd inversion triads like chrisweyers said - the root is on the B string. 3rd is above it on the E string, 5th is in the bass.

I wouldn't play them as barre chords as it would change the feel, and imo its easier to play them as triads anyway if you're sliding them, but I guess you could play them as A or E shaped barres and just strum the top 3 strings if you really wanted. That would still give you the root, 3rd and 5th of the chord, so you're still playing triads just a different inversion. The barre part becomes a bit nugatory though as you're not actually using it.

Oh, yeah, I completely spaced on his original question! lol
