Surprised tabs for this song haven't been posted, this is how I play this song...

The guitar in the recording is much softer then the other instruments. 
It hides behind the audacious piano, slide guitar, bass, drums..
Though, the guitar part really holds the basic structure and melody of the song. 
so playing this song with just a guitar sounds great!

I suggest checking out the Farm Aid 1997 live performance when learning the song.
The guitar part is much more prevalent when played live.
Also Beck adds in some nice sounding and very basic guitar fills through out the performance.
it's on youtube:

Then your fingernails are much too long

And you can stay there too

Seems like everyone's just floating away

Got to tie myself down

Got to tie myself right down!
