I think its a Am at 5th fret (with a high C), then a Bm at 7th fret (with a high D).
The piano or whatever confounds it a bit.
Maybe....

Close though it sounds like Piano playing E C x4,Fsharp D X4
And Harpsichord Arpeggio playing at the same time what Deuce said with high B the C is from the piano :wink:

The chords after the intro sound like just plain Am(5th)-Em(7th). The intro is just like that. Thanks cleon!

For the Orchestral Favourites version, also played live for the 1972 Petit Wazoo tour, the intro chords would have the following arpeggios:

A F C E G ( from the fifth string to the top E the fingering would be 0 3 5 5 3)
A G D F# A (the fingering would be on the same strings 0 5 7 7 5)

The 1972 Petit Wazoo version, for referencing the guitar sound:
