  Em  F  F  F* Ami         Ami         C     D     Ami
  Play this part twice during chorus.  On second time throug chords, this 
  sounds real nice if you play each succesive chord louder so that the 
  tension builds to a climax at Ami and then you pause and go back to 
  Cmaj7-C verse.

  This F* chord is not exact, sounds like C/D combo but I am not sure
  what it is so I cheat by holding the F which works in the key.  
  
The transition includes some real simple eighth note picking 
 that goes from C to G and walk down to C/Cmaj7:

B---------------3/5-5-5-5-5-5-3-1-0-1-0
G---0-0------------------------------           
D-------2-0--------------------------
            G G

Complete transition to be played after chorus & before return to verse:
E---0--0--0--0--0--0----------------------------------
B---0--0--1--0--1--0------------3/5-5-5-5-5-3-1-0-1-0
G---0--0--0--0--0--0-0-0------------------------------           
D---2--------2----------2-0-0-------------------------
A---3--------3--------------2--2----------------------
E---------------------------3--3----------------------
  Cmaj7   C Cmj C     C     G  G
