TO play this song it's very nesecary to listen to it. You can find the song at "The 
Series Vol 4 Live 1966 The Royal Albert Hall Concert".

Dropped D tuning (D-A-d-g-b-e'), capo 7th fret (sounding key A major)

D           000232
Dsus2  000030
D/c       030030
G           020033
Em        222000
F#m      444222
The rhythm isn't at all obvious in the introduction: his foot-tapping is on the 
but when the band enters, the full rhythm pattern corresponds well with what the intro would 
been with the foot-tapping as the beats.
This figure, with variations, is repeated for the intro, and played during the 
beginning of the verses:

  D                             D/c   D                             D9/f

       F#m                 D
What's wrong with you this time?

Black sun-glass [came here, pony run] *)
Tombstone babes, y'all can get it done
Fool's gold in your teeth and cementary hips
Get outside of your graveyard lips
Yes, everybody's wonderin'
when your friendship's gonna end
But come on, baby, I'm your friend!
And I know that you know that I know that you show
Something is tearing up your mind. **)

Tell me, momma,
Tell me, momma,
Tell me, momma, what is it?
What's wrong with you this time?

Ohh, [you're pleasing?] but your face is red
That ain't he can't get it, he's almost dead.
Everybody sees you on your window ledge
How long's it gonna take for your to get off the edge
You just gonna make everybody jump and roar
Now, whatcha wanna go and do that for?
For I know that you know that I know that you know
Something is tearing up your mind.

Ah, tell me, momma,
Tell me, momma,
Tell me, momma, what is it?
What's wrong with you this time?
