Tom Waits – Goin Out West tab ver. 2

Alright, I haven't really seen a solid tab of this anywhere, and it's a pretty boss song.
This is my first tab, and I thought I post the way I play it.
It's more droning and deep than the album version.

The trick is to tune the "E" all the way down to a "C" so its in "CADGBe" Tuning.

*NOTE* this is just a really rough outline of what I play, but I figured people could
probably figure it out.

Verse/Intro Variation

E------------------------------------------------|B------------------------------------------------|G------------------------------------------------|D-5----------4-----------------------------------|A-----------------------6------------------------|C--0-3-0-0-----3-0-3-0----3-0-3-0-0--0-3-0-0-3-0-|
then
E------------------------------------------------|B------------------------------------------------|G------------------------------------------------|D-5----------4-----------------------------------|A-----------------------6--3---------------------|C--0-3-0-0-----3-0-3-0-------0-3-0---------------|
The timing of the "C" string notes is awkaward to tab out, but you'll get it by listening, it's actually pretty easy. The "Distorted" Riff comes up a few times, and varies off of these chords.
e----------------------------|B----------------------------|G-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5-----|D-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5-----|A-1/3-3-3-3----1/3-3-3-3-----|C----------------------------|
The timing is sort of weird, and sometimes he throws in mutes/odd harmonics based around those chords. And occasionally, he does this this tiny riff back into the other riffs, it looks like this. it's most profound at 1:07ish
e---------------------------------|B---------------------------------|G-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5----------|D-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5----------|A-1/3-3-3-3----1/3-3-3-3----------|C------------------------h6h5h4h0-|
The chorus is similar to the distorted riff, but starts higher.
e-----------------|B-----------------|G-8/10-10-10-10---|D-8/10-10-10-10---|A-6/8--8--8--8----|C-----------------| x 2
Then
e----------------------------|B----------------------------|G-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5-----|D-3/5-5-5-5----3/5-5-5-5-----|A-1/3-3-3-3----1/3-3-3-3-----|C----------------------------|
Then back to
e-----------------|B-----------------|G-8/10-10-10-10---|D-8/10-10-10-10---|A-6/8--8--8--8----|C-----------------|
And he goes up to a D, strums it a few times during the end of the chorus, and goes back into the verse.
e-------------------|B-------------------|G-10/12-12-12-12-12-|D-10/12-12-12-12-12-|A-8-/10-10-10-10-10-|C-------------------|
any thoughts or questions are welcome, just thought I'd throw this tab out while a had some time to kill.
