Ok, I don't know if half of all tabbers are tone deaf or something but 
the other versions of this song have quite a few errors and are a pain 
to play off of.  Hears my interpretation for one guitar from a live 
version I have.  If you can't figure out when rests, holds and chords (all of the 
chorus) are placed from listening to the track, too bad.

How verse (and intro) chords are picked
    A*      F*        Am      F         C       Em

A*    F*    A*     F*     Am      F      Am      F

A*          F*
  There's a spider crawling 
A*                F*
  On the bathroom mirror
A*         F*              C       Em
  Right on top of my right eye
A*                 F*
  And I can't stop staring back
A*          F*
  How did I get this way?
Am           F                G       C       F      C
  Take a big look at a living lie

G          C               F        C
  Rags to rags and rust to rust
G              C                    F         C
  How do you stand when you've been crushed
G             C           B           A*    F*    A*     F*
  So rags to riches was a bust

A*            F*
  Sometimes I dream about it
A*                    F*
  What it's like back home
A*             F*                  C         Em
  The railroad tracks and the pussywillow
Am             F
  But i had to leave it
Am         F
  Now i go back 
Am            F                   G       C       F      C
  Whenever my tired head hits the pillow

G          C               F        C
  Rags to rags and rust to rust
G              C                    F         C
  How do you stand when you've been crushed
G             C           B       F
  So rags to riches was a bust

B        F
  Busted once again
B                     F
  Well I’ll show them one day
B            F                G
  That i can buy and sell the world

A*    F*    A*    F*

Am            F
  And one day I’ll come through 
Am            F
  My American dream
A*             F*             G       C       F      C
  But it won't mean a fucking thing

G          C               F        C
  Rags to rags and rust to rust
G              C                    F         C
  How do you stand when you've been crushed
G             C                F      C
  So rags to rags and rust to rust       don't let me go!
G         C                F      C
  Rags to rags and rust to rust       don't let me go!
G         C                F      C
  Rags to rags and rust to rust       don't let me go!
G      C      F      C

The only thing I think needs to be changed is the B to a Bb.

1. Yeah, it's Bb and not B.

2. Towards the end of the first half of the verse (C and Em) he is picking the following, I think:

e|-----------------|
B|-----1-------0---|
G|---0---0---0---0-|
D|-----------------|
A|-3-------2-------|
E|-----------------|

E.g. it is Em/B really.
