Well, I have already in detail tabbed out the original album version of "Corduroy", and 
I was fiddling around with my brother's acoustic guitar (and then listening to an 
version of "Corduroy" on my computer) I figured out the chords for the acoustic...

Am 022000
Dsus2 002200
F 032010
E 02444x
Fadd9 032030
Am9 022030

It has the intro of the original:

Then the rest of it is different than the electric version.

The verse progression (played in the same rhythm as the verse riff is played in the 

C - B - G (play once through and then start singing part way through G strumming)

C           F     E  C
The waiting drove me mad
C              F            E C
You're finally here and I'm a mess
C           F E      C
I take your entrance back
C             F           E  C
Can't let you roam inside my head

F               Am        Dsus2     C
I don't want to take what you can't give
F              Am          Dsus2    C
I would rather starve than eat your bread
F              Am      Dsus2   C
I would rather run but I can't walk
F               Am        Dsus2  C
Guess I'll lie alone just like before

Interlude - one guitar plays intro riff, the other plays these chords with it
Am                      Dsus2    F

Next verse and chorus exactly the same chords as first ones. Then there is the 
verse thingy:

Guitar one plays: D-D-Dsus4-D-Dsus4 ad nauseam, guitar two plays these chords

(played twice through before lyrics start)
Am9 - Fadd9 - Am9 - Fadd9

Fadd9 Am9
 Everything has chains
Fadd9 Am9
 Absolutely nothing's chains
Fadd9   Am9
Take my hand, not my picture
Am9        Fadd9
Spilled my tincture

Regular next chorus and final verse. The outro is just interlude pretty much (with the 
and intro riff)
