Tuning: CFCFAC (Open F- Open G down one full step)

This one was tough to tab out.  This tab isn't 100% note for note, and I'll explain why
but I covered the major parts that you need to play the song.

Intro:
C----------------------------|
A--------1----3-----1--------|
F---------------------2p0-0--|
C----0h2---/3---3\2----------|
F----------------------------|
C----------------------------|

Verse Riff:
C--------------------------------|
A--------------------------------|
F------0-0--0---0-0---0-2p0---0--|
C----2--------2-------------2----|
F--------------------------------|
C--------------------------------|

During the verses, this is repeated three times with a fill to end it.  I wasn't going
sit here and tab out every single one of them for a few reasons...they got lost in the
so I couldn't hear them, I simply couldn't figure out what Rich was playing, and I don't
want to waste my time tabbing them out note for note.  Open tunings allow for a lot of fun
improvisational fills, so you can have fun making up your own parts.  Here are the two 
the vocals come in, and a third one from the first verse to give you an idea of what to play...

C-------------------------------------| |--------------------------------| 
A--------------3----------------------| |--------------------------------| 
F--------0h2/4---4\2p0-2p0------------| |------0h2/3--2/3\2p0---0h2p0----| 
C----0h2-------------------2----------| |--0h2----------------2-------2--| 
F------------------------------2b3p0--| |--------------------------------| 
C-------------------------------------| |--------------------------------|

|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|----0-0---------0---0-2p0-----|
|--2-----/2-----------------2--|
|------------/3----------------|
|------------------------------|

Figure A:
C----0--0---------------|
A----1--1------0-0-0-0--|
F----2--0------0-0-0-0--|
C----3--2---------------|
F-------0--3b4----------|
C-----------------------|

This is played in between the first two verses

Chorus (with slide):
C--------------------------|    |---------------------------|
A----------------/5----5\--|    |---------------------------|
F----/3\2p0-/2-0-/5--5--\--|    |--/3-/3-0--/3-/3\2p0----0--|
C-----------/2---/5--------| x3 |---------------------/3----|
F--------------------------|    |---------------------------|
C--------------------------|    |---------------------------|

The first measure is played three times, on the third repeat, add the second measure to
end.  The whole figure is played twice.

Solo Rhythm:
C---------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------3--5--|
F------0-0--0---0-0---0-2p0---0----0-0--0-----3--5--|
C----2--------2-------------2----2--------2p0-3--5--| x3
F---------------------------------------------3--5--|
C---------------------------------------------------|

C---------------------|    |--------------------------|
A------0-0--0-0-3--5--|    |----0-0--0--0---0-0--0--0-|
F------0-0--0-0-3--5--|    |----0-0--0--0---0-0--0--0-|
C----2----------3--5--| x3 |--2-----------2-----------|
F---------------3--5--|    |--------------------------|
C---------------------|    |--------------------------|

I couldn't really make out what was being played during the last measure of the solo
but this'll do just fine.

Interlude:
Figure B
C----0----0----0-----0-----0----0--|
A----1----8----10----10/12--10--8--|
F----0----0----0-----0------0---0--|
C----3----9----10----10/12--10--9--|
F---------0----0-----0------0------|
C----------------------------------|

The interlude is played at a much slower tempo then the rest of the song.  This is played
once and is followed by

Figure C:
C-------------------------------------------------------------------|

A----10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--------12--12--12--12--12\--|
F-------------------------------------------------------------------|
C------10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--/12-------12--12--12-----|
F-------------------------------------------------------------------|
C-------------------------------------------------------------------|

C--------------------------------------------------|
A------10--10--10--10--11p10--10------10\-------8--|
F--------------------------------------------------|
C----10--10--10--10--10-----10----/10--------/9----|
F--------------------------------------------------|
C--------------------------------------------------|

then these chords:
C---0-----0-----0-----0--|
A---10----12----10----8--|
F---0-----0-----0-----0--|
C---10----12----10----9--|
F---0-----0-----0-----0--|
C------------------------|

Figure C is repeated, with some slight variation, then this is played

Figure D:
C----0----0--0---0---0--|----------------------|
A----10---10/12--10--8--|--12\-----------------|
F----0----0--0---0---0--|--12\----/3\2p0----0--|
C----10---10/12--10--9--|--12\---------/3------|
F----0----0--0---0---0--|----------------------|
C-----------------------|----------------------|

We return to the original tempo after the first measure, then back into the chorus after the
second measure.  The chorus is repeated four times, then the main riff is played and improvised
on as the instruments drop out until just the organ, drums (rimshots only), and rhythm guitar
are left, with the rhythm guitar playing this riff...

Figure E:
C-------------------------|
A-------------------------|
F--------0--x-x-x-x-x--3--|
C----2b3p0-------------2--|
F-------------------------|
