Willie kicks in just when Mark slides from 10/13:

Riff 5a:
e|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|------------------------|
D|-4\3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|  ===> the second time around you'll have to slide
A|------------------------|       from the 5th fret to 3rd (not 4th to 3rd)
D|------------------------|
       . . . . . . . . .


Riff 6a:
e|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|------------------------|
D|-3/7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--|

       . . . . . . . . .

G|------------------------|
D|-7\6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--|

Repeat Mark's part twice, and repeat Willie's twice HOWEVER when you get to  Riff 7a, 
start easing off the palm mute about half way through and start tremelo picking the 6's 
the 4th string),listen to the song you'll get the idea.

I'll post the entire tab when I'm done, hopefully soon, have fun!  Comments/suggestions always welcome.

Andd I know perfectly well Willie's part can be played higher up on the 6th string like 
does on hourglass, so here you go nitpicky bastards =P:

Willie's part (alternate version):


Riff 5b:
e|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------| ===> second time around you'll have to
A|-----------------------------------|      slide from 17th fret to 15th fret
D|-16\15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15-15--|      (not 16th to 15th)
          .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .

e|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------|
