As far as I can tell, the verse just follows a simple arpeggio
chord progression (A,C,D,C,B,A,G,F). I don't know the actual
pattern, but you can try just about anything. Here's a simple
example. Let the bass notes ring throughout.
[A]Wanderin down..[C]rocky road
E------------------------------------
B---------2-----------------5--------
G-------2---2-------------5---5------
D-----2-------2---------5-------5----
A-0**-----------0---3**-----------3--
E------------------------------------

[D]Wonderin where my [C]life is [B]leading
E------------------------------------------
B---------7h8p7----------------------------
G-------7-------7-----------5----------4---
D-----7----------7--------5----------4-----
A-5**-----------------3**--------2**-------
E------------------------------------------

[A]Rolling on    [G]to the bitter  [F]end
E-----------------------------------------------------1---
B---------2-------------------------------------------1---
G-------2---2--------------4----------------2---------2---
D-----2-------2----------5---5------------3---3-------3---
A-0**-----------0------5-------5--------3-------3-----3---
E------------------3**-----------3---1**----------1---1---

(Actually, that B chord may be a figment of my imagination,
but I like it in there!)
Pre-Chorus
  [D]Ooohhhhhh   Oooh
(I want you to stay)
E---------------------------------------------------
B--7**------------7^^--------7**------------7^^-----
G--7**------------7^^--------7**------------7^^-----
D--7**------------7^^--------7**------------7^^-----
A--5**------------5^^--------5**------------5^^-----
E---------------------------------------------------

My notation here is kinda strange. You should really smack
that D chord the first time and let it ring, then cut it off
the second time (staccato??) If you listen to the record
it'll be pretty self explanitory)
Play this 3 times, then, for the last time, play.....
[C]todayyyyy    [D]ayyyyyyyy - you get the idea
E-------------------------
B--5-------------7--------
G--5-------------7--------
D--5-------------7--------
A--3-------------5--------
E-------------------------

Then on to the chorus, which is just G,A,C,D
[G]Rea[A]dy for love       [G] [A]   Oh baby I'm
E---------------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------------
G--4//6-----6-------6--------4//6-----6-------6-----
D--5//7-----7-------7--------5//7-----7-------7-----
A--5//7--7--7----7--7--------5//7--7--7----7--7-----
E--3//5--5--5----5--5--------3//5--5--5----5--5-----

[C]Rea[D]dy for love        [C] [D]
E---------------------------------------------------
B--5//7-----7-------7--------5//7-----7-------7-----
G--5//7-----7-------7--------5//7-----7-------7-----
D--5//7--7--7----7--7--------5//7--7--7----7--7-----
A--3//5--5--5----5--5--------3//5--5--5----5--5-----
E---------------------------------------------------

At the end of the chorus is a decending riff, like the verse.
Try something like this:
  [C]     [B]    [A]     [G]       [F]        [G] 
E-----------------------------------1----------3----
B-----------------------------------1----------3----
G-------0------0------0-------0-----2----------4----
D------0------0------0-------0------3----------5----
A--3**----2**----0**----------------3----------5----
E------------------------3**--------1----------3----

That's pretty much the song. I haven't compared it too closely
to the album, so I'm sure there are mistakes. But it sounds
good to me so it should at least provide a good start.
There's also plenty of room to improvise, especially during the
verses. Have fun and I hope someone makes use of this!
Please let me know if you have anything better
