Thinking out loud

Tuning:(E-A-D-G) – Bass tab – Tempo: 158bpm – Key: D - 4/4

Intro/V1: 00:01 (vocals / acoustic guitar)
When your legs don't work like they used to before,
And I can't sweep you off of your feet,
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?

Hope this tab will help many and inspire many others to play on the Bass that lovely song from Ed Sheeran...
Careful with the "Pre-chorus" (or Bridge if you'd rather) the last note of each sentence/riff is:

B
AAAAA.

Enjoy,
