The progression in the verse is interesting because the II chord, E, is a dominant 7 chord, which creates an interesting harmony and sits really well with the vocal.

When you're playing a song like this your time and feel becomes the most apparent and important feature of your playing. For a simple strumming song like "Love Me Tender", you want to play with a nice relaxed feel, sit nicely in the quiet groove here.
