The Hendrix version played at Monterey is virtually identical to the one 
posted below with the exception that he starts the song by playing the 
chorus in power chords.  Get the rhythm off of the album :) It's 
approximately:

E|-----------------------------------|--------------------------------------
B|-----------------------------------|-------------------------------------- 
G|--5---X-------------------555555/7-|--5--/9----------------------55555-5--
D|--5---X---3-3----3/5--5---555555/7-|--5--/9------XX3-3---5---5---55555-5--

E|----------1-1----1/3--3------------|--------12\0-XX1-1---3---3------------

Then into the C F G progression for a few bars before beginning the

Here's the first verse. As I'm transferring the stuff from the left part of
my brain to the right (or is it vice versa?) it's probably a bit flawed :

4/4   | C | Dm | Em | F | G | G7 |

   C                    Dm
   Once upon a time you dressed so fine
   Em                    F             G
   Threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you
  C                          Dm
   People called you, said "Beware doll,
          Em                  F                    G
   You're bound to fall", you thought they were all kidding you
  F           G
   You used to laugh about
  F                       G
   Everybody else that was hanging out
  F        Em   Dm       C
   Now you don't talk so loud
  F        Em   Dm       C
   Now you don't seem so proud
         Dm                            F                G
   About having to be scrounging around for your next meal
                  C  F  G
   How does it feel, 
                  C  F  G
   How does it feel
                   C  F  G
   To be on your own
                     C  F  G
   In no direction home
                        C  F  G
   Like a complete unknown
                     C  F  G  G7
   Like a rolling stone.

The chord positions try to capture the phrasing, but you'll really have
to figure that out yourself :-)

-Raja.
