Well, here's the best response I can think of to:

Notes: 1) I assume you've heard the song.
       2) No capo - all chords are first position open.
       3) For the C chords during the bridge, use a standard 1st
       position C but play the G on the high E string with the pinky so
       that the voicing moves more like the slide guitar on the album.
       4) I finger the F#7b9 lick at the end of Chorus I like this:
       XX____                         _XOOO_
       |||||| first fret              ||||||
       ------                         -------|
       ||1111                   ----> ||||---|   wrapping the thumb
       ------                         -------|   makes it much easier
       |||2|3 (lift up '3'...)        Tx|||3   to grab the G chord...
       ------                         ------   (x = mute ; O = open)

       5) The G->G/F#->Em and D(sus) stuff is very typical of Penn...

I wish I had time to type in all the lovely twiddles and chord patterns,
but this is the best I can do and still have a job...  If you've heard
the song, it'll be easy to figure out those details...

The part with the Am-Asus2 and the F#7b9 are a stucatto of 4 chords played for 8 beats, the first interchanges between the Am and the Asus2, repeating twice..assign the Am to the 1 and 3 beats, and the Asus2 to the 2 and 4....likewise then use instead of an F#7b9 an Edim7 in the 3rd position like so: XX2323 and for the 4 beats you simply let off the pinkie on the 1st string which makes an F# like this: XX2322. The problem with these is that there isn't enough space to write the chord names in there with the lyrics making it necessary for me to explain it here for any who are interested to try it. It is a simple 12345678 count, using the first 2 chords until the 5th beat where it changes to the second 2 chords....the difference between each of the 2 sets are dropping one finger out if the chord and so is quite easy for anyone to play correctly!

Note: Each time at the end of the Chorus that this series of chords is seen: Am-Asus2-Am-Asus2-Edim7-F#-Edim7-F#- G - They must be played one one beat of an eight count the 1,2,3,4 are a syncopation of the Am to the Asus repeated twice in quick succession then followed and split up the same way for the 5,6,7,8 beats with the Edim7-F# chords listed below, played twice in an equally quick succession, so that each chord is played once on each beat but is split up in the way I've explained. Both the Am-Asus2 and the Edim7-F# require only the dropping of one finger from each of the first chords to be on the second chord. Listen to the recording to hear the way he plays these chords, and play the forms shown below as these are the correct and accurate voicings used on the recording.

Chords:
G 320033
D/F# 200232
