This is how I play it. Listen to the record if you want to be able to time it right with the lyrics, it's a bit tricky.

Standard tuning

e|-------------------------------------------------0-0-
B|-------------------------------------------------0-0-
G|-------------------------------------------------0-0-
D|-------------------------------------------------0-0-
A|----------0-0--------------0-0--------------0-0--0-0-
E|0-0-0-0-0-----0--0-0-0-0-0-----0--0-0-0-0-0------0-0-

the waves were beating
against the shore
the waves were beating
as if they hadn't before
the dock was soaking
the wood was wet
your hair blew madly
i can't forget.
we went down to the boat.
we went down to the boat.
yeah!

the rushing water
the pale sky
hey, that's a good way
to let the dock dry
you know what i mean
we were slaves
the word was lurching 
the dark way
as we went down to the boat
we went down to the boat.
we went down to the boat.
we went down to the boat.
yeah!

I went through your version and it sounds a bit off. I won't delete it though because I'm pretty sure that'd be rude. Instead, this is how I play it.

e|--------------------------------------------0-|
B|----------------------0--------------------0--|
G|----------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------|
E|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0h3/4---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0h3/4---| x whatever

and that little bit at the end of each verse is just hitting open on B and e very quickly at the same time
