Ahead By A Century Tab

Ahead by a Century
The Tragically Hip

There are 3 acoustic guitar parts to this song which are very similar, some are in standard 
tuning and there is at least one in an open D tuning, if you see them play this song live 
the lead guitar is definitely playing an open tuning. I think it goes like this:
 
Open D tuning, strum across all strings, only fingerings are shown
