                Well, I have already in detail tabbed out the original album version of "Corduroy", and 
I was fiddling around with my brother's acoustic guitar (and then listening to an 
version of "Corduroy" on my computer) I figured out the chords for the acoustic...

Chords:
Em 022000
Asus2 002200
C 032010
B 02444x
Cadd9 032030
Em9 022030


It has the intro of the original:
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----4---4-----4---4-----4---4-----4---4-|
|-2-2---2---2-2---2-----2---2-----2---2---|
|---------------------0---------3---------|
|-----------------------------------------|

Then the rest of it is different than the electric version.

The verse progression (played in the same rhythm as the verse riff is played in the 
is:

C - B - G (play once through and then start singing part way through G strumming)

G           C     B  G
The waiting drove me mad
G              C            B G
You're finally here and I'm a mess
G           C B      G
I take your entrance back
G             C           B  G
Can't let you roam inside my head

C               Em        Asus2     G
I don't want to take what you can't give
C              Em          Asus2    G
I would rather starve than eat your bread
C              Em      Asus2   G
I would rather run but I can't walk
C               Em        Asus2  G
Guess I'll lie alone just like before

Interlude - one guitar plays intro riff, the other plays these chords with it
Em                      Asus2    C
|------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|
|-----4--4-----4---4---4---4---4-----4---4-|
|-2-2--2---2-2---2---2-------2-----2---2---|
|------------------------0-------3---------|
|------------------------------------------|

Next verse and chorus exactly the same chords as first ones. Then there is the 
verse thingy:

Guitar one plays: D-D-Dsus4-D-Dsus4 ad nauseam, guitar two plays these chords

(played twice through before lyrics start)
Em9 - Cadd9 - Em9 - Cadd9

Cadd9 Em9
 Everything has chains
Cadd9 Em9
 Absolutely nothing's chains
Cadd9   Em9
Take my hand, not my picture
Em9        Cadd9
Spilled my tincture

Regular next chorus and final verse. The outro is just interlude pretty much (with the 
and intro riff)
