The album version is done on a banjo. This tab is all guitar and is based on 
the live version. I used a few different references but the Crystal Ballroom 
DVD was my main one. He changes the arrangement of his songs quite often
so think of this as just a guideline.

Intro

He often skips this part completely. The ending is a little bit different
than the studio version.

Fret the notes on the 6th string with the thumb. Let go of the chord before 
the slide fills so the chords do not ring out.

Verse/Chorus

Sometimes he only strikes a chord once, rather than twice (as written). There
doesn't seem to be a structured pattern to it, it's just something he does
whenever he feels. He almost always hits the C chord (8th fret) twice.

Here's a fill he likes to throw in on that last bar.
