intermittently.  listen for the timing.

there are two main licks in this song.

Lick 1, this is after the first B7:

 B7-2------2-----| (x21202@1)-4-2-h4---2---|

Lick 2, this is after the E at the end of each stanza:

 E-0------0-------| (022100@1)-0--------0-----|

the chords i use are as follows:

 D9  B7 (x21202@1)D7 (xx0212@1)F#m (244222@1)A (x02220@1)E (022100@1)
 F#7 (242352@1)G (320003@1)B-x---2---5---2----0--0--2---2----3--2---| (x2444x@1)-5---4---7---2----2--0--3---2----3--4---|

so thats pretty much it.  enjoy.
