You're both right; he's going to play it open, AND it's in D-flat.  
Like many other Goats tunes, this one is played tuned 1/2 step down, using the following open chords 
(when referring to them, I'm going to ignore the flats for ease's sake):

BASIC CHORDS/RIFFS:
      D  Asus4   A    G        Fill
Eb ---2----0-----0----3--   -----2---
Bb ---3----3-----2----3--   -----3---
Gb ---2----2-----2----0--   -----2---
Db ---0----2-----2----0--   -----0---
Ab ---0----0-----0----x--   -0-2-0---
Eb ---x----x-----x----3--   -----x---

OVER-ALL NOTES:
- There are only three real progressions/strumming patterns: Instrumental Verse, Verse, and Chorus.

- There are two small, but important differences between the two verse parts:
    1. The instrumental verse includes the fill.
    2. The instrumental verse hits each chord a half-beat early, whereas the vocal verse hits each new chord right on the 1-beat.

- The chorus is easy except the last measure, which (due to the fill being included), has one extra half beat.

TABLATURE:
- INSTRUMENTAL VERSE PART (starts with lead-in fill):
