The lead could be done on the barre chord of Am.
It's a lot more natuaral and based on the way John plays it makes more sense..

B|5-55--5------------5----------------------
G|-7---7-4/5--7577-77-4/5-------------------

You put an E Maj chord instead of an E Min in most of the song...listen to it closer.

e------- ---------
b---0--- Should be this --> ---0-----
g--1---- --0------
d-2----- -2-------
