the 4th verse has and extra line:

[A] Blind and helpl[D]ess sick and dead

[A] With scattered [D]needles everywhere
[A] Thorn at the en[D]d of every road
[A] Thorn at the en[D]d of every road
[A] [A]  
Then the song goes into the chorus and the post
chorus ascending part, call it a bridge if you like.
The A holds on twice as long at the end of the ascending
pattern also.
