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.

 AC
 Wanderin down..rocky road
E------------------------------------|
B---------2-----------------5--------|
G-------2---2-------------5---5------|
D-----2-------2---------5-------5----|
A-0**-----------0---3**-----------3--|
E------------------------------------|


 DCB
 Wonderin where my life is leading
E------------------------------------------|
B---------7h8p7----------------------------|
G-------7-------7-----------5----------4---|
D-----7----------7--------5----------4-----|
A-5**-----------------3**--------2**-------|
E------------------------------------------|


 AGF
 Rolling on    to the bitter  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.....

 CD
 todayyyyy    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

 GAGA
 Ready for love           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-----|


 CDCD
 Ready for love          
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:
 CBAGFG
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
