There's quite a bit to say about this one...lots of syncopation, lots of chords, some tough positions, etc. To get the verse rhythm, you're going to want to mute all of the strings in a way that can be tough to describe with text, your best bet is to listen to the recording. The little lead in with the A and G/B happens very quickly to lead in to many parts of the song so make note of when it happens. The little figure that happens in the verse is based on a G13 chord and can be a little tricky to pick so if you just want to play the little melody there it may be easier. Expect a lesson for this one sometime soon...
