This tab is mainly to give you an idea of what to play in the intro and outro.
I'll include my interpretation of the other parts too.
You'll want to use a pick for this one.

Tuning: Drop D - DADG

/   Slide up
\   Slide down
x   Muted note
h   Hammer-on



Ad-lib a weird rhythm on the low D for 4 measures.

G|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|
D|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +
        
Completely crazy part begins on the 5th measure:  (damn this tab is messy)   (it's all octave 
doubled)

G|-17-17-17-16-16-16-17-17-19-19-19-19-19-19-----|-----------------17-17-17-15-15-17-17-19-|

   1    +     2     +   3   +   4   +   

Then go back to ad-libbing on the D for 9 measures.


Then the bass starts playing the main riff:

G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|-0---0-0-8---0-0-0-8-8-0-7-8-8-8-|-0---0-0-8---0-0-0-8-8-0-7-8-8-8-|
   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +     1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +

G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|-0---0-0-6---0-0-0-6-6-0-5-6-6-6-|-0---0-0-6---0-0-0-6-6-0-5-6-6-6-|
   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +     1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +


During the chorus, the bass plays a modified version of the riff:

G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|-0---0-0-8---8-0---8-8-8-7-8-8-8-|-0---0-0-8---8-0---8-8-8-7-8-8-8-|
   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +     1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/soundgarden/jesus_christ_pose_btab_ver_4.html ]
G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|-0---0-0-6---6-0---6-6-6-5-6-6-6-|-0---0-0-6---6-0---6-6-6-5-6-6-6-|
   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +     1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +


The bridge part is played:

G|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
D|-x-x-x-x-12---12---x-x-x-x-12---12---|-x-x-x-x-10---10---x-x-x-x-10---10---|
   1   +   2    +    3   +   4    +      1   +   2    +    3   +   4    +

But there are a lot of little variations, as usual with Mr. Shepherd. For example:

G|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------|-------------------------------------|
D|-x-x-0-0-12---12---0---0h12-12---12--|-0---0---10---10---0-0-0h10-10---10--|
   1   +   2    +    3   +    4    +     1   +   2    +    3   +    4    +


Breakdown:

G|------------------------------------|------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------|------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------|------------------------------------|
D|-0---0-0-12--0-0-0-0-0-10---12-12---|-0---0-0-12--0-0-0-0-0-10---13-12---|
   1   +   2   +   3   +    4    +      1   +   2   +   3   +    4    +

G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|-7-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-----x-x-x-|-x-6---6-3-----6-----5---6-6-6-6-|
   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +     1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +


When Chris screams "It wouldn't pain me more to bury you rich, than to bury you poor!":

G|------------------------------------|------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------|------------------------------------|
A|-0---0-0-5---0-0-0-0-0-3-----5-5----|-0-0-0-0-5---0-0-0-0-0-3-----6-5----|
D|------------------------------------|------------------------------------|
   1   +   2   +   3   +    4    +      1   +   2   +   3   +    4    +

G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|-3-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-----x-x-x-|-x-6---6-3-----6-----5---6-6-6-6-|
   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +     1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +

Return to the bridge part.


Ride the low D for a short time, then play this riff 6x as the song begins to "fall apart":

G|-----------------7---------------|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|-----------------7---------------|
A|-7-7-6-6-5-5-6h7-----------------|-7-7-6-6-5-5-6h7-----------------|
D|---------------------7---0---0---|---------------------7---0---0---|
   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +     1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +

Next:

G|-------------5-5-5-5-5-4-4-4-5-5-|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-3-3-|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +     1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +

G|-7-7-7-7-7-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-7-7-7-7-|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-/-|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|-5-5-5-5-5-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-5-5-5-5-|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-/-|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
   1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +     1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +


G|-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-16-16-17-17-19-19-19-19-|
D|-------------------------------------------------|
A|-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-14-14-15-15-17-17-17-17-|
D|-------------------------------------------------|
   1     +     2     +     3     +     4     +

Then start strumming all the octaves of D. Throw in some slides like the intro.
Accent different notes, sometimes the highest, sometimes the lowest, sometimes the middle ones.

G|-19-19-19-19-19-19-19-19-19-19-19-19-19-19-19-19-|
D|-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
A|-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-17-|
D|-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
   1     +     2     +     3     +     4     +


Hit this powerchord at the crash:

G|-----------|
D|-7-~-~-~-~-|
A|-5-~-~-~-~-|
D|-0-~-~-~-~-|

Then there's a little slide up the A string, before ending with a final massive low D.
