Well, this is by no means complete TAB, but it's such fun just to play the intro that I figured I'd post it. Keith probably used some wierd tuning and played it completely different! You might have to do some muting on that funny chord.
Also, I have no idea what the "real" key is on the record.

In the meantime, here's some other chords to try on that song.
Hope you like them...

 -|----xx--xx----------5---5---5---5--5----5----5---5-------

The 'A' chord (you're playing the 1-5-8 version with no 3rd --
not major or minor) is actually two chords, a suspension that
resolves to the major -- played at the 12th fret (drag).
Once it gets to the break, there's the two chord da Daahh da Daahh
stuff... those chords are
------------------
------7-----------
------7------5h6--          (Do various riffs here)
------7------5----
---7--5---7--7----
---5--5---5--5----

The 5'th fret on the D string is a min 7 interval making the
major a dominant 7. The 5h6 is a hammer-on (gives it that
bluesy feel).
