The above information was taken from www.crowesbase.com

Tuning: DGDGBD (Open G)

Intro
D------------------------------|-----|
B--12--10--10--8---10---10--7--|--5--|
G---0---0---0--0---0----7---7--|--5--|
D--12--11--10--10--10---9---7--|--5--|
G---0---0--10--9---8----7---7--|--5--|
D------------------------------|-----|

These are just the chords for the intro.  It's easy to pick up the strumming
pattern just by listening to the first minute or so of the song.  These chords

are repeated twice, but the last chord is only played on the repeat.

To my ears, that is how the first verse ends, meanwhile, the other two verses end like this:

It sounds like the above rhythm part is played on the album, but all of the live
versions I have from throughout the years sound more like the following:

D--------------------------------------------|
B--12--8--10--5--7--3--5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-0--|
G---0--0---0--0--0--0--0--3-3-0-0-3-3-0-0-0--|

G--12--9--10--5--7--3--5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-0--|
D--------------------------------------------|

If you want proof, the Brothers of a Feather and Freak and Roll versions are both
clearly played the second way.
