D A D G B E
The tabs that I've seen for this are way oversimplified.  First of all, the song is in
D tuning and the low D string is hit during the first bass run.  Also, if you listen
you can hear the high e string the entire time except during the bass runs.  The song is 
of 3 chords, D, C, and B/G.  The chords are played as listed below.

D
e-----2-2-----2-2----2-2-----2-2----|
B-----3-3-----3-3----3-3-----3-3----|
G---------0h2------------0h2--------|
D--0--------------0-----------------|
A-----------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------|

        C
e------3-3-----3-3----3-3-----3-3----|
B------1-1-----1-1----1-1-----1-1----|
G------------------------------------|
D----------0h2------------0h2--------|
A---3--------------3-----------------|
D------------------------------------|

B/G
e-----3-3----3-3----3-3----3-3-----|
B-----3-3----3-3----3-3----3-3-----|
G-----0-0----0-0----0-0----0-0-----|
D---------0-------------0----------|
A--2-------------2-----------------|
D----------------------------------|

Don't try to pick hard at the e and B strings, but strike them with a very light strum.
song requires some touch.


There is a bass run during the G of the bridge and several during chorus.  The open D
is the start of the next D chord.

e-----3-3----3-3----3-3------------|
B-----3-3----3-3----3-3------------|
G-----0-0----0-0----0-0------------|
D---------0------0------2h0--------|
A--0h2---------------------0-------|
D-----------------------------0----|

Chorus bass goes something like this before going back into the C chord.

Bridge:  D D C B/G D

D         C
There are stars
G               D
In the southern sky
D         C      G  D
Southward as you go
D        C
There is moonlight
    G            D
And moss in the trees
D              C       G   D
Down the seven bridges road

D          C      G       D
Now I have loved you like a baby
D          C       G     D
Like some lonesome child
D          C      G       D
And I have loved you in a tame way
D          C         G    D
And I have loved you wild

C                           D
Sometimes there's a part of me
C                         D
Has to turn form here and go
C                         D
Running like a child from these warm stars
D              C       G    D
Down the seven bridges road

Any idea what the bass runs during the G and Chorus are? What does something like this mean exactly? Isn't that just as oversimplified as all the other tabs? The rest of the tab isn't bad!
