Her green plastic watering can 
For her fake chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth
That she bought from a rubber man 
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself

Almost ten years later, I agree - the right chords are this B/D chord X20230 and A major X02220 in that section.

However, this guy has the first section the closest to right of any tab I've seen. No one else has the bass notes or E major (or E7?) that is clearly there on the recording.
