Okay, so the whole concept of "verse" and "chorus" that I've mentioned earlier really makes less than perfect sense here. I have to call these sections of the tune something - and George or Loretta would make about as much sense as verse and chorus here, but whatever.
In other words, this is not exactly a "verse" in Em: it's a recurring section of music in Em.
And there happens to be another recurring section of Em that we will get to shortly as well, just to further add to the confusion. Get over it.
