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...

Should be:



 -|-----------------x---x-----------------------------------------------

 -|-----------------15--14-----------------------------------------------

 -|-----------------14--14-----------------------------------------------

 -|-----------------14--14--5--7--7--9--9*-7--7--9-----------------------

 -|--5--7--7--9--7--xx--xx--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5-----------------------

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



        *This '9' is sometimes a '5' on the live version.



 -|-----x---x-----------------------------------------------

 -|----14--12---7---5---------------------------------------

 -|----14--14---7---5---------------------------------------

 -|----14--14---7---5---------------------------------------

 -|----xx--xx----------5---7---7---9--9---10---10---9-------

 -|----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).
