John Hiatt chords for Lipstick sunset

Guitar chords

The acoustic guitar here is in dropped-D tuning (DADGBE). NB A chord diagramA augmentedA tip for
playing it - the top A chord diagramE MajorE string  is  mostly avoided apart from the motif
that connects the verses, which goes something like:

-----3---5---2-
-----3---5---3-
--/4--/6-------
-----------0---
---------------
---------------

I had a go at tabbing the slide part, but I quickly realised I haven't
a clue about playing slide (which  doesn't  help when you're trying to
transcibe Ry Cooder!). Does anybody  else  want  to  try - if it's any
help, I'd be reasonably certain that it's  in  either open A chord diagramD MajorD or open A chord diagramE MajorE

tuning.
Corrections and comments welcome, as always...
