Hello Ultimate-Guitar !
I hope you find this tab useful. I dont think no one has acctually wtritten this tab 
(or i think correctly ;)). So this is what i figured out by ear, and to me, as a drummer 
and bassist, i think this tab is right. Please rate :)!
RJ_Rock :D

Tuning: Drop D (if you dont tune down it sounds terrible !!)

Intro

E|-----------|
G|-----------|    This is acctually the bass note, but sounds good on guitar
D|-----------|    too !! :)
A|-----------|
D|------/9---|

Verse

What i do, is i take these chords, and i improvise around them. So for example i add 
notes, more linking notes :)

'I work in the dead of night...'.. bit :)

E|------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------5-5--5----|
G|--4-4--4----2-2--2----7-7--7----6-6--6----|
D|--5-5--5----0-0--0----9-9--9----7-7--7----|
A|--x-x--x----x-x--x----x-x--x----0-0--0----|
D|--2-2--2----5-5--5----9-9--9----x-x--x----|

                  ^
These chords are just used in the verse, improvise around them, i've made them sound 
:L

'Oooohh.... Ooohhh... Ooohh... You get in, you get done and then you get gone...'

E|-------x-------x-------x----------x-------x----------|
B|-------x-------x-------x----------x-------x----------|
G|--4-4--x--7-7--x--6-6--x-----2-2--x--7-7--x--6-6-(7)-|  Repeat again

D|--2-2--x--9-9--x--7-7--x-----5-5--x--9-9--x--7-7-----|

         E|---------------|
         B|---------------|
 End On  G|--2-2--2----6--|
         D|--0-0--0----7--|
         A|--x-x--x----x--|
         D|--5-5--5--5/7--|

This is when the drums come in with the rhythm... I like to fingerpick this part, but 
can strum the notes too. :)

B|---------5-5-5--|
G|-7-7-7---6-6-6--|   Repeat x6
D|-9-9-9---7-7-7--|
A|-x-x-x---0-0-0--|
D|-9-9-9----------|

Then play the verse again....
The Chorus follows:

Thanks gilza for you're comment :) the last chord, on the 6th string on the 7. I'm only 13 and i have quite small hands, so i couldn't reach that 7 note :L but yes that does make it a better sound !! Thank you :)

And kevy absolution, itss not how mayer plays it, but its just i went on youtube, and i found this guy make an awesome cover, not what john was playing, but it was a selection of chords that sort of fitted. I tried to copy of him :L but to mee its sounds okay ish :)
