Hey, this is my first tab and actually a correction to a previous tab by DW Drummer, 
which BTW is a nice one because is pretty easy to play and have fun... 
but what I am posting here is much closer to what Rodriguez actually plays, 
specially regarding the intro (with fretted chors, instead of open). 
As he uses the same chords for the whole song, I thought it would be nice to make it clear.

      Am     Am9    E7             Dm7   E7       Am
Sugar Man won't you hurry, cos I'm tired of these scenes

      Am     Am9    E7             Dm7   E7       Am
For a blue coin won't you bring back all those colours to my dreams

V2:
      Am     Am9    E7             Dm7   E7       Am
Sugar Man, met a false friend on a lonely dusty road

Lost my heart, when I found it it had turned to dead black coal

C       Am    D7        F       C        Am           F    Bb      E

      Am     Am9    E7             Dm7   E7       Am
Sugar Man you're the answer that makes my questions disappear

      Am     Am9    E7             Dm7   E7       Am
Sugar Man, cos I'm weary of those double games I hear

      (Am     Am9     Dm7     E7) 
Sugar Man, Sugar Man, Sugar Man, Sugar Man, Sugar Man, Sugar Man, Sugar Man,  Sugar Man

great tab! I have only one suggestion, try playing it with a capo on the 5th fret. You can then pretty much play every chord in the first position and its way easier to strum and sing this way. Transpose it ^7 steps and you'll get the chords relative to the capo. Thanks for this tab!

I play it without a capo and think it's perfect.
But I play the verse like this: ( Ammaj7 xx2110 )

Am Ammaj7 Dm E7 Dm7 E7 Am
Sugar Man won't you hurry, cos I'm tired of these scenes

great job anyway, thank you for this
