Poison Girl Tab

I was wondering if anybody had chris' "poison girl" tab? I'm going through it slowly by ear, though it'd be cool to have a guide. If not, any help with the song would be great (tunings, etc.).

Man, all I can say right now is it's eaeg#be, like open E but leaving the A string as it is. The intro's just sliding from the second fret to the fourth on the A string, you'll get that easy. The only other chord I know is this:

e------0------------
b------0------------
g#----1------------
e------2-----------
a------2---------
e------2-------

Not much help but...

OK I get the basic intro bit and it sounds good.

I use that slide up on the A string from 2 to 4
and then

e------0------------
b------0------------
g#----3------------
e------4-----------
a------4---------
e------x------- sometimes he fingers the fifth fret here
to get a different phrasing.

to

e------0------------
b------0------------
g#----1------------
e------2-----------
a------2---------
e------x-------

but what's the position for the "I've been waiting up town..."
bit ?

I'm looking at the Rosebud video to get clues... it looks
like it's up at the third or fourth fret.... moving the
finger from bass string third to second fret something like..

e------0------------
b------0------------
g#----5------------
e------5-----------
a------x---------
e------3-------

to

e------0------------
b------0------------
g#----5------------
e------5-----------
a------x---------
e------2-------

Any help ????? greatly appreciated.... I'm starting to
appreciate the earlier LWTL stuff more and more since
hearing some of the live bootlegs.... still can't stop listening
to the Bremen 2003 show..... AMAZING !

Nice...I think the "waiting" part is more like this:

E------------------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------------------------------
G#---------------------------------------------------
E---------5---5-----------------------------------------
A---------5---5----------------------------------------
E---------3---2-----------------------------------------

Just seems to sound more natural to my ears, I guess.

He always would throw in this, the theme chord in New Machine at the end:

E-------------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------------------
G#----------6---------------8---6------------------------------
E------------7---------------7---7---------------------------
A---------5/7---7-7--7-7--7---7-----------------------------------
E----------------0-0--0-0---------------------------------


Er....something like that. Fun song to sing. Find someone that can blow a harp and jam it out late at night.

inflateablesoulmate here...

I love this guys... first time i actually sat and read up on CWs tunings.
I learned this one in regular 'E' tuning just to keep things running smoothly at them open jams.
I think Poison Girl was the first and only CW video id ever seen on mtv back in the day.
Keep it up folks, I love CW Get enough /fan/players together and maybe somebody can do a tribute album.
THAT would be kewl to see.
A bunch of nobodies keeping his music alive.
that would be awsome actually.
I still mourn the guy, This week im mourning the death of my buddy here, and i can honestly say it had everything to do with me losing my poison girl.
