Good tab?

Here is the tab for "Long Train Runnin'" by the Doobie Brothers.The only way I can make this sound close to correct is by using thepucker method (opposed to the tongue  block, which I have grownaccustom to)on most of the sounds.  This is because there are somepretty rapid bends. Maybe if your a bad mofo when it comes to bendingyou can squeeze by this problem. 

*Note: I find that many of the quick bends are easily produced by sortof whistling backwards while tongueing the word "to, two or too"while sucking in air.  Whichever you prefer.

 The tab isn't 100% correct, but it gives a good frame to workaround. Any input is appreciated

Oh yeah a negative in front of the number dictates a draw.

As I have stated prior, this is just a frame to work off of.  The dudeplaying harmonica (Tom Johnston?) whips it all out pretty fast, so youwill have to listen to it to get a good feel of it.
