This tab is perfect.  I sat and listened to the song repeatedly while
tabbing it out using Guitar Pro. Then I synced them together to play at the
same time and it's a perfect match, notes and timing. Enjoy.

After this, the bassist just runs variations of the chorus.  Instead
of tabbing it out, I'll leave it up to you to play around with it for
a few bars as the music fades out.  Have Fun.
