[updated:LAST EDITED ON Mar-10-06 AT 11:12 AM (EST)]No chords at all, just open string strums in open D tuning.
Behind the first vocal he plays a bend at the 8th fret of the B string while holding the 7th fret high E, the 2d and 3d phrases of the verse are accompanied with identical slide figures on the low strings. In between phrases he strums the open strings and throws in a low E 3d fret bend.

I thought such a master of transcribing such as yourself wouldn't have any trouble with such an easy song! After all, you credit yourself for transcribing a Blind Blake song on your site, Pony Blues should be child's play compared to Blind Arthur's Breakdown...
