b------------------3--------2--3--2------------------------------
g----------------------4----2--2--2--0h1------1--2--0h1------1
d---------------4--------4----------------2---2--2------2----2
a-----0--1--2-------2-------0-----0-----------------------------
e--4----------------------------------------0----0---------0


I play the E and A strings with the flat pick and the B with the ring finger and the G and D with the middle finger.

There are some subtle nuances to this lick that are picked up more easily if you get in tune with a live version and play along. For instance between the E and A chord of the first half of the phase, the 1 on the G and 2 on the D just before the A chord are hit on the downstroke with the middle and ring finger and immediately stopped and hit again on the upstroke just before hitting the A chord.

I play a little bass line that you can hear Jerry play. I have heard versions with alternating bass i.e. B & F# over the Bm and A & E over the A although I am more partial to the above.

Of course as is usually the case Jerry evolved and the lick morphed in subtle ways. The above is a basic starting point from which to begin. Any thoughts please reply.

Without a doubt. Even within something as straight forward as this there's a lot of futzin room.
