For all of those who want to keep playing the song and not switch back the tuning after the intro, the song is 
basically in D and E, so all you really have to do after the intro is play a bar chord 7th fret (E) and 5th 
fret (D) (E-D-E-E-E-D-E). It should sound like NA-ta-NANANANA-ta-na, where "na" is E and "ta" is D. Very easy.

This tab is great! But unfortunately, for those of us with only one guitar, it's not very practical to only be able to play the intro. I don't think the rest of the song is in open G tuning.

Instead of open G tuning, it's pretty easy to just tune your low E up to a G and keep the rhythm there. The rest of it comes out identical except the high part, where the e string is played 2 frets lower. This way sounds almost exactly the same, and it makes for an easier transition into the rest of the song.

BRD, this tab is right on with the recording. For the past 10 minutes I sit here playing the prologue to with the record, you never hear this part on the radio because it's not really that loud. Very accurate tab. This is also a stardaerd blues riff. 5 stars.
