The 'A' chord (you're playing the 1-5-8 version with no 3rd -- 
 
not major or minor) is actually two chords, a suspension that 
 
resolves to the major -- played at the 12th fret (drag). 
 
 
 
Once it gets to the break, there's the two chord da Daahh da Daahh 
 
stuff... those chords are 
 
 
 
------------------ 
 
------7----------- 
 
------7------5h6--          (Do various riffs here) 
 
------7------5---- 
 
---7--5---7--7---- 
 
---5--5---5--5---- 
 
 
 
The 5'th fret on the D string is a min 7 interval making the 
 
major a dominant 7.  The 5h6 is a hammer-on (gives it that 
 
bluesy feel).
