CHORDS:
    G   Am  Dm  F   C   D7  D#7  E7  Dm* Am* G*
E|--3---0---1---1---0------------0---5---5---3--|
B|--0---1---3---1---1---3---4----0---6---5---3--|

A|--2---0-----------3---5---6----7--------------|
E|--3----------------------------0--------------|

* denotes alternate voicings

G(9)
The backing vocals hold the  Dm  harmony over the  G

TUNING:
6   5   4   3   2   1
Eb  Ab  Db  Gb  Bb  Eb

It's possible to play the song in the key of B using barre chords.
However, there are several clues which confirm the tuning:
1. The open string sound of the  G
2. The change from  G to Am  would introduce a slide in  F# to G#m
3. There is a low third in  C  which would require  B = 76444x
  (The low third in  G  would also be a clue but it is typically muted)
4. The open string voicing of  E7  includes fifth seventh and octave
   D#7 = x6564x loses the fifth
   D#7 = x68686 loses the octave
5. Consistent hand position in the chromatic sequence  C D7 D#7 E7

================================================================================

The tablature details the timing and syncopation of the rhythm guitar
