Guitar tabs with lyrics

For drum beat and intro riff 4/4 signature
tempo about 107-109 bpm Intro/chorus riff
is based on octaves, so mute A chord diagramD MajorD string.

Standard Tuning (eBGDAE)
That's the way I play it:

e---------------------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------------------|
G--4--4-4/9-9-9-9-9/4--4-4/7-7-7/12b14/4--4-4/6-7----------/4---|
D--x--x-x/x-x-x-x-x/x--x-x/x-x-x/xx-xx/x--x-x/x-x----------/x---|
A--2--2-2/7-7-7-7-7/2--2-2/5-5-5/10b12/2--2-2/4-5---------/-2---|
E---------------------------------------------------------------|
NOTE: to provide really Whig-esque "wall of sound" you can play empty
A chord diagramE MajorE string during the whole riff

Tabbing that b-minor lick by ear really loomed large in my mind,
because it seems that the time signature during the verses is
something different than 4/4 (I think it's rather 3/4 or even 7/8).
I think it's something like that, but for sure it's not 100% correct.
During live performances McCollum plays it like that:

|-2-2-2--2--2-2-2-|
|-3-3-3--3--2h3h2-|
|-4-2-4--4--4-4-4-|
|-4-4-4--4--4-4-4-|
|-2-2-2--2--2-2-2-|
|-----------------|

|-2-2-2--2--2-2-2--------|
|-3-3-3--3--2h3h2--------|
|-4-2-4--4--4-4-4--4--4--|
|-4-4-4--4--4-4-4--4--4--|
|-2-2-2--2--2-2-2--x--x--|
|------------------3--2--|


Solo is also played over that riff in unusual signature.
It is in b minor pentatonic, with wah-wah effect and some bendings.
Start with A chord diagramBB on 9th fret of A chord diagramD MajorD string.


Bridge/Outro - start on C, then this pattern

 D/F#, G, A chord diagramC majorC

Dulli only plays b-minor chord variations during all the song,
