I've been working on The Firm's Midnight Moonlight song. I belive the tunning is DADGAD. It is a complex song, any help transcribing would be appreciated.

This is what I came up with for the intro:

D----14----9--11--6-----7---9---6---4----5--7--4---6
A----16---11--12--5-----9--11--7---5----7--9--5---7
G----14----9--11--6-----7---9---6---4----5--7--4---6
D-----0----0----0--0-----0---0---0---0----0--0---0---0
A-----0----0----0--0-----0---0---0---0----0--0---0---0
D-0--0----0----0---0-----0---0---0---0----0--0---0---0
Play 2x

Other cords I picked out listen to the song are:
D--0---0
A--2---8
G--0---0
D--0---0
A--2---8
D--0---0

Part at the end of the first few vocal lines(played on the bottom 2 strings) I don't belive this is correct:

A-3-5-5--5-5-3-2-0-2-0
D-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-3-0
Play 2x

The music to this song was recorded in part during Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti sessions, but they never did anything with the song. That recording is on the Led Zeppelin bootleg Physical Outtakes, titled The Swan Song. When Jimmy Page and Paul Rodgers formed The Firm, Rodgers put lyrics to the music,and it was released on their first (self titled The Firm) album as Midnight Moonlight. Page stated in an interview that the song came out of the extended jam parts of playing White Summer/Black Mountain Side live.

I thought I was the only person who knew about that tune. Isn't that on their second record?
