Have any of you guys tried to work this out? In my very cursory attempt, I've figured out the "end of verse" lick (eg during the "this space is getting hot" line), which is simply sliding up the B string to the 12th fret and then hitting the e string on the 12th fret. Not sure on the rest though.

I've been following the chords with a slide and it works out okay. Try this:

/=slide p=pull off

-5/7------3/5--------2/3p0/5-------------5/7---------3/5----------2/3p0-
-5/7------3/5--------2/3p0/5-------------5/7---------3/5----------2/3p0--
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

one could also slide up to the 12th fret at the end of that line

Weir's interplay between fretting and sliding was outstanding and he hit some great slide accents.
