This acoustic version can be found on a CD entitled "I Found My
Tulip" containing other acoustic versions of their songs and some interviews

This pattern is repeated throughout the entire song.
   Cm                              Eb/B

   Fm                              Ab

E|---------------------------------4-------4-------4-------4-------|


UPDATE:

When Kevin Barnes plays this, he actually uses a guitar that is tuned down 
a whole step, that is, two half-steps. Then the song is in Dm(relative to tuning):

   Dm                              F/C
d|-1-----1-------1-------1---------1-----1-------1-------1---------|
A|---3-------3-------3------3--------1-------1-------1-------1-----|
F|-----2-------2-------2------2--------2-------2-------2-------2---|
C|-0-------0-------0------0-----------(3)-----(3)-----(3)-----(3)--|
G|---------------------------------3-------3-------3-------3-------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
   Gm                              Bb
e|-3-----3-------3-------3-----------------------------------------|
B|---3-------3-------3-------3-----3-----3-------3-------3---------|
G|-----3-------3-------3-------3-----3-------3-------3-------3-----|
D|-5--(5)--5--(5)--5--(5)--5-----------3-------3-------3-------3---|
A|(5)-----(5)-----(5)-----(5)------1-------1-------1-------1-------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

Obviously this pattern has variations over the length of the song, and the
notes that are sometimes substituted are written in brackets.

This tab is a good effort, but Kevin Barnes plays this way differently. This acoustic version, which was featured on the CD you mentioned, was originally recorded for AOL. Somebody uploaded the video of Kevin Barnes performing this version on youtube, and from what I can see the fingering is very different. I'm gonna go take a shot at tabbing it now based on the video. Thanks for your attempt though, you've inspired me to make tabs haha
