What chord does Lennon play twice at 2:55? It's not the usual A7.

I tried to figure it out on my guitar and it sounds like hes just playing the high e string more audibly still with the normal A7 bar chord shape.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

John plays what is commonly called a full A chord, which you can accomplish by playing the bar shape of A, or play it like this (a share I believe John used in this case):
-5-
-2-
-2
-2-
-0-
-0-

So basically what @Mr. Kite said, only I don't agree that there's 7th there.

There is one chord he hits at 2:55 which is an E-Major-7th chord by accident then corrects it quickly and goes back to the D-Major 7th.

The song is in the key of A-Major 7th with these chords for the entire song: D-Major 7th, E-Major 7th, C-Sharp Minor and F-Sharp Minor.
