The intro yo yhis song is actually a D chord on the fifth fret with the middle finger lifted up. You switch from this to a regular D on the first fret. You can also add some hammer ons and pull offs with the little and third finger to make it fancy.

The Dm9 (no 5) that Neil Young uses is played on the 5th fret, which is a D chord shape with the middle finger lifted, so the 4 treble strings are fingered like this: 

D-G-B-E
0-5-6-0
The high E is open.
