The chorus is 6 bars long using this chord progression.

I IV I IV V I
G C G C D G

The chorus is shorter than the verse, but very strong presentation of the vocal hook. The melody shifts but continues the 2 bars per phrase pattern we have seen in the verse.

This is the only section of the song that starts and ends on the I chord, with the vocal hook delivered over the only full cadence in the song. Again, great songwriting!

Note that the song ends on beat 3 of the last bar of G in the final (4th) chorus. Again, no nonsense, we're done singing so you can take it home now.
