I must give credit where it's due. The tuning is directly from the Tea Party's Official Web Site, so you know it is authentic and also that I didn't figure it out myself! Anyways, I also have to give credit to Paul Stipack, although he has never talked to me, his tab for this song is the basis for my interpretation.
