The acoustic guitar here is in dropped-D tuning (DADGBE). NB A tip for
playing it - the top E string  is  mostly avoided apart from the motif
that connects the verses, which goes something like:

-----3---5---2-
-----3---5---3-
--/4--/6-------
-----------0---

I had a go at tabbing the slide part, but I quickly realised I haven't
a clue about playing slide (which  doesn't  help when you're trying to
transcibe Ry Cooder!). Does anybody  else  want  to  try?- if it's any
help, I'd be reasonably certain that it's  in  either open D or open E
tuning.
Corrections and comments welcome, as always...

LIPSTICK SUNSET - John Hiatt
----------------------------
D
          G        D      A         G
There's a lipstick sunset smeared across the August sky
          A               D            Bm
There's a bitter sweet perfume hanging in the fields
    A
The creek is running high
      G              D      F#                Bm          E
And I left my love a-waiting  in the dawn somewhere to wonder why
                  D       D/F#      G
By the end of the day all her sweet dreams would fade
     A        D        G  A  D
To a lipstick sunset

And the radio was playing and that old summer heat was on the rise
I just had to get away before some sad old song
Brought tears to my eyes
And Lord I couldn't tell her that her love was only killing me
By the end of the day all her sweet dreams would fade
To a lipstick sunset



Well it's pretty as a picture, red and blushing, just before the night
Maybe love's like that for me,
Maybe I can only see as you take away the light
But hold me in the darkness - we can dream about the cool twilight
Til the dawning of the day when I make my getaway
To a lipstick sunset
G                        D             D/F#    G
 There will come another day, and I'll make my getaway
     A        D
To a lipstick sunset
