Hey, this is my first tab and actually a correction to a previous tab by DW Drummer, 
which BTW is a nice one because is pretty easy to play and have fun... 
but what I am posting here is much closer to what Rodriguez actually plays, 
specially regarding the intro (with fretted chors, instead of open). 
As he uses the same chords for the whole song, I thought it would be nice to make it clear.

[Intro] Am Am9 Dm7 E7 | Am Am9 Dm7 E7 | E7 E7 

[Verse 1]
      Am     Am9    E7             Dm7   E7       Am
Sugar Man won't you hurry, cos I'm tired of these scenes
      Am     Am9    E7             Dm7   E7       Am
For a blue coin won't you bring back all those colours to my dreams
C       Am    D7        F       C        Am           F    Bb      E
Silver magick ships you carry - jumpers, coke, sweet 'mary jane'

[Verse 2]
      Am     Am9    E7             Dm7   E7       Am
Sugar Man, met a false friend on a lonely dusty road
      Am     Am9    E7             Dm7   E7       Am
Lost my heart, when I found it it had turned to dead black coal
C       Am    D7        F       C        Am           F    Bb      E
Silver magick ships you carry - jumpers, coke, sweet 'mary jane'

[Verse 3]
      Am     Am9    E7             Dm7   E7       Am
Sugar Man you're the answer that makes my questions disappear
      Am     Am9    E7             Dm7   E7       Am
Sugar Man, cos I'm weary of those double games I hear
      (Am     Am9     Dm7     E7) 
Sugar Man, Sugar Man, Sugar Man, Sugar Man, Sugar Man, Sugar Man, Sugar Man,  Sugar Man

great tab! I have only one suggestion, try playing it with a capo on the 5th fret. You can then pretty much play every chord in the first position and its way easier to strum and sing this way. Transpose it ^7 steps and you'll get the chords relative to the capo. Thanks for this tab!

I play it without a capo and think it's perfect.
But I play the verse like this: ( Ammaj7 xx2110 )

Am Ammaj7 Dm E7 Dm7 E7 Am
Sugar Man won't you hurry, cos I'm tired of these scenes

great job anyway, thank you for this
