The Tallest Man On Earth – Where Do My Bluebirds Fly tab ver. 3

Ok so I've been working this up for a while now, and I think that this is pretty much it. 
As with any song with finger picking, there are so pretty obvious variations
in the song that are easy to hear, but I don't think it's worth the effort to
try to write them all down. So, listening to the song is going to obviously
help a lot.

So, first off, the tuning is weird. 
From low to high it's D G D G A# d

He has two picking patterns that he uses:
(t-thumb, p-pointer, m-middle, r-ring)

Pattern 1:d |----------------|A#|--m--m--m--m----|G |--p--p--p--p-p--|D |--t---t---t---t-|G |t---t---t---t---|D |----------------|
1e+a2e+a3e+a4e+a He uses this pattern for the intro and varies it a little bit for different parts (i.e. the last measure for each part of the intro) Pattern 2:
d |--------r-------|A#|-----m-----m----|G |--p----------p--|D |--t---t---t---t-|G |t---t---t---t---|D |----------------|
1e+a2e+a3e+a4e+a He uses this pattern for everything else and it also varies (hammer-ons).
The intro chord progression goes like this (I'm doing one chord per measure):d |---------|A#|-0-0-0-2-|G |-3-2-0-5-|D |-5-4-1-4-|G |-0-0-----|D |-----1-0-| x2
The chord progression for the verses goes like this:d |-0-1-3-0-|A#|-2-2-0-0-|G |-0-3-0-2-|D |-0-0-0-3-|G |-0-0-----|D |-----1-3-|
And for the chorus it goes like this:(now it's a little weird because it's 7 measures not 8, and the 7th measurehas a second chord that it switches to halfway through)d |-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-00-|A#|-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-00-|G |-0-2-3-0-|-0-2-20-|D |-1-3-3-1-|-1-3-30-|G |-----3---|--------|D |-1-3---1-|-1-3-32-| ^
| So this chord is played on the 3rd beat of that measure. Sorry if that's confusing. Look at the written out tab for a clearer picture of what's going on. So, all of that written out:

(Verse) (Verse) And as the early sigh of dawn will thunder I see you stir the fog around (Verse) And when you find the voice and gears of sunset we'll hear that high and lonesome sound, oh (Chorus: Part 1) And I will question every wind if they gone through the glow of your eyes (Chorus: Part 2) Oh, you're just a riddle in the sky Oh, where do my bluebirds fly? (Verse) I say where do my bluebirds fly? (Verse) (Intro: Parts 1 & 2) (Verse) Oh, well I know you stroke your feathers baby upon the ghosts along my trail (Verse) And I know well I was sold and buried before I knew it was for sale, oh (Chorus: Part 1) With all this fever in my mind I should aim for your kerosene eyes (Chorus: Part 2) Oh, you're just a target in the sky I say where do my bluebirds fly? (Verse) I say where do my bluebirds fly? (Verse) (Intro: Parts 1 & 2)
