In this lesson we'll learn the first verse.

The chords are in the key of D major. Since this is a I-IV-V progression, this means we'll be playing D major, G major and A major chords.

The verse structure has a sneaky 3rd bar of V in the second half:
I / IV / V / I /
I / IV / V / V / I /

You will be a better player if you can accurately count what you are playing. It actually frees you from counting if you inform yourself and build muscle memory to support your time signature. At the same time, the lyric to this song flows in a way that, if you follow along, you'll end up in the right place at the right time.
