I have the Garcia/Hunter songbook and it says the intro chord is just B. Hope that helps. :-)

The intro is mostly in B, as is the little riff after the first line of the song
Mama said dont go near that river
dont be hangin around

walkin in his footsteps in the sweet belt of dawn

Pretty much right! I play around with different voicings of the chords like inversions or different barre positions and sometimes Bsus4 for the E and Esus4 for the A...
