Subsistence by Edwyn Collins,
from the album Gorgeous George

A7 is be played a few different ways...
Where A7 is called for, play [- 0 2 0 2 0]
Where A7* is noted play [- 0 2 0 2 3]
D7 also...
D7 is [- 0 0 2 1 2]
D7(V) - [5 5 7 5 7 5]
D7(V)* - [5 5 7 5 7 8]

I suggest listening to the recording for the timing on the D7 - D7(V) - D7(V)* progression

There are two low E notes plucked off beat during the intro
Intro picking pattern is played very softly, strumming starts at the end
