So, I actually started to learn this song from Rockcru's tab (great work, thanx a lot)
in the meantime I watched Bruce playing this song on the Devils + Dust DVD and I found
differencies I'd like to share with you. So this is how Bruce plays it on the video.

Intro: G and Gadd9

              G                       Gadd9
Out where the creek turns shallow and sandy
        G                            Gadd9
And the moon comes skimmin' away the stars
    G                      Gadd9                     G
The wind in mesquite comes rushin' over the hilltops
                 C                      G    Gadd9 G Gadd9
Straight into my arms, straight into my arms
           G                        Gadd9
I'm ridin' hard carryin' a catch of roses
      G                Gadd9
And a fresh map that I made
                  G                   Gadd9            G
Tonight I'm gonna get birth naked and bury my old soul
                 C                       G     Gadd9
Gadd9
And dance on its grave, and dance on its grave
            Dsus2 Em11 G        C
It's been a long time comin' my dear
            Dsus2 Em11 G                  C
It's been a long time comin' but now it's here
              G    Gadd9 G Gadd9
Yeah now it's here
        G                   Gadd9
Well my daddy he was just a stranger
G                Gadd9
Lived in a hotel downtown
     G                  Gadd9
When I was a kid he was just somebody
G                C                        G      
Gadd9
Somebody I'd see around, somebody I'd see around
         G                         Gadd9
Well now down below and pullin' on my shirts
     G                   Gadd9
I've got some kids of my own
     G                    Gadd9
If I had one wish in this godforsaken world, kids
    G                                C
It'd be that your mistakes'd be your own
                         G   Gadd9 G Gadd9
Yeah your sins'd be your own
            Dsus2 Em11 G        C
It's been a long time comin' my babe
            Dsus2 Em11 G                  C
It's been a long time comin' but now it's here
              G    Gadd9 G Gadd9
Yeah now it's here

Bridge: G C G C G C

               G              Gadd9
Out 'neath the arms of Casseopeia
          G              Gadd9
Where the sword of Orion sweeps
     G                      Gadd9
It's me 'n' you Rosie we're cracklin' like crossed wires
G                            C
And you're breathin' in your sleep
                              G     Gadd9 G Gadd9
Yeah you're breathin' in your sleep
               G                      Gadd9
There's just a spark of campfire left burnin'
    G                     Gadd9
Two kids in sleeping bags beside
  G                                  Gadd9                            G
I reach 'neath your shirt 'n' lay my hands 'cross your belly 'n' feel
                C
Another kickin' inside
                                  G    Gadd9 G Gadd9
And I ain't gonna fuck it up this time
            Dsus2 Em11 G        C
It's been a long time comin' my dear
            Dsus2 Em11 G                  C
It's been a long time comin' but now it's here
            Dsus2 Em11 G        C
It's been a long time comin' my babe
            Dsus2 Em11 G                  C
It's been a long time comin' but now it's here
              G    Gadd9 G Gadd9 G
Yeah now it's here
