1st fret
This is an alternate tuning version of a tab by pye3214.
It can either be done by raising the high e a whole step and lowering the G string a 
half step, with capo 1.
Or, if you're like me and don't want to add tension on the high e, you can lower 
everything but the e another whole step and play capo 3.

|TUNING OPTION 1
|(before adding capo 1)
|F#
|B
|F#
|D
|A
|E

|TUNING OPTION 2
|(before add capo 3)
|E
|A
|E
|C
|G
|D

Either way you end up with this tuning, and these chords
    C  Fadd9  Am7 Gsus4
g---0----0-----0----0--------|
C---0----0-----0----0--------|
G---0----0-----0----0--------|
Eb--1----2-----6----4--------|
Bb--2----2-----6----4--------|
F--------0-----4----2--------|

Again, I want to reiterate that pye3214 did most of the work on this and I just put it 
in an open tuning.
Check out his tab for a standard tuning version.

Inrot: C      Fadd9

C      Fadd9
When the soul of the city
C      Fadd9
Was laid to rest
C      Fadd9
And the nights forgotten
C      Fadd9
And left for dead

Am7     Fadd9      C
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh, oh (x2)

I happened on a house
Built of living light
Where everything evil
Disappears and dies

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh, oh (x2)

Fadd9
When they love you, and they will
C      Am7   Gsus4
Tell 'em all they'll love in my shadow
Fadd9
And if they try to slow you down
C      Am7   Gsus4
Tell 'em all to go to hell
Fadd9~

I settled in slowly
To this house that you call home
To blood and breath
Fear, flesh and bone

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh, oh (x2)

Rush of our bodies
In the heat of the night
All day the day after
Red in the skies

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh, oh (x2)

When they love you, and they will
Tell 'em all they'll love in my shadow
And if they try to slow you down
Tell 'em all to go to hell

BRIDGE
Fadd9     C     Gsus4    Am7    (x4)

It's a lifeless life
With no fixed address to give
But you're not mine to die for anymore
So I must live

Born of a bottle
From heaven's hand
And now you know
And here I am

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh, oh (x2)

When they love you, and they will
Tell 'em all they'll love in my shadow
And if they try to slow you down
Tell 'em all to go to hell

When they love me, and they will
I'll tell 'em all they'll love in your shadow
And if they try to slow me down
I'll tell 'em all to go to hell

Other than the fact that he plays in either Drop D or Standard you're the closest I've found.
