Through most of this song John is just using three strings of each chord like so:
e|-------------|
B|-------------|
G|---2---2---2-|
D|---2---2---2-|
A|-0---0---0---|
E|-------------|etc...

Occasionally he will add in another string, like in the C#m chord or sometimes in the E or Dsus2 for effect. 
Just listen for the timing!

A                                                          C#m
Look closely at the shadows on the ground beneath the trees
D		A
  The labors of Hercules
A		                               C#m
Wild grasses on the hills, rippling in the wind
D  A                  
   Cybele unchained

    E                   
The songs you sing at Christmas time
    Dsus2
The stories that you tell
		     F#m
Well I knew them well
    Dsus2	    F#m	
Yes I knew them well

      E
Say your prayers to whomever
	 Dsus2
You call out to in the night
	 F#m
Keep the chains tight
E
Make it through this year
      Dsus2		Dsus6/9 Dsus2 Dsus6/9 A
If it kills you outright

A		                                          C#m
The coins they toss at dancers whirling in the city square
D  A
   Music on the air
A		                                         C#m
The places where we met to share our secrets now and then
D         A
  We will see them again

E
Change will come
    Dsus2
Stay warm inside the ripple
Of the Panasonic hum
                  F#m	
It grinds and it roars
Dsus2
Headed somewhere better
If I have to crawl there on all fours

         E
Say your prayers to whomever
	 Dsus2
You call out to in the night
	 F#m
Keep the chains tight
E
Make it through this year
      Dsus2
If it kills us outright
