Tap your foot when you play the chorus. Play the G for 4 beats (first beat on DONT), the D for 4 beats (first beat on BOUND). The last sequence of chords for the chorus is for 8 beats (first beat on THERES) .The whole song is in 4/4, very basic. Make sure and listen to the song and the changes in chord switching. That chorus chords should mostly be steady strummed and mimicked in the way that John does.

Does that help? Let me know.
You could even strum the chord with each beat for the first part.

G, G, G, G

D, D, D, D

A-----G, D
