Capo 3
I use my thumb for the "F#" (the low 2).  Pull the "B" off to "A"
or the "A" to the "E" to add some color. More notes at the bottom.

 D5       F#m      G2        D2        A/F#     G2       color

       D5        F#m        G2
You’re cussing a storm in a cocktail dress 
     D5          F#m        G2 
your mother wore       when she was young
D5           F#m       G2
Red southern saint around   your neck
  D5     F#m       G2
A wet martini in a paper cup

            D2     A/F#      G2 
You’re a wasp nest
            D2     A/F#      G2 
You’re a wasp nest

     D5       F#m       G2 
Your eyes are broken bottles
D5      F#m          G2
   And I’m afraid to ask
    D5        F#m      G2
And all your wrath and cutting beauty
       D5     F#m           G2
You’re poison in the pretty glass

            D2     A/F#      G2 
You’re a wasp nest
            D2     A/F#      G2 
You’re a wasp nest

       D2          A/F#      G2
You’re all humming      live     wires 
D2         A/F#            G2
under your killing clothes.
D2       A/F#       G2
Get over here, I wanna 
D2        A/F#          G2
kiss your skinny throat

            D2    A/F#      G2 
You’re a wasp nest
            D2    A/F#      G2 
You’re a wasp nest


There’s more than one guitar, and you start hear added notes like this.
I play this down an octave or drop the chord and move my hand up 
for a moment.

Capo 3
---0---7p5--------      ---0---0----------|
---3--------------      ---3---3----------|
---2--------------      ---2---4p2--------|
-0----0-----------      -0----0-----------|
------------------      ------------------|
------------------      ------------------|

You might be able to play the flourishes better if you move the
capo to the 8th fret and D chords to A chords.
The problem is you can’t play the G# in the bass

A5       A5/F#    A5/G     or  A2     etc            
---------|--------|---------   -------0--2p0---------------|

In this way, you can hit that low bass note that isn't present in the first chord

capo 1


I also like to play it in a finger picking upwards pattern to get the sound more like the recording
