I have seen a lot of bass tabs for this song over time, but none of them have
seemed completely correct.  I decided to tab this out to put the correct version
out there.  I found this tab in a "Guitar" magazine from Jan '98, and since they
are usually completely correct, I am totally confident that this tab is totally
correct.  If not, oh well, tab it yourself.

Key:

pm____________: = palm mute until the colon
		  (I don't know how to explain it any better?)
x = muffle string
/ = slide up
\ = slide down


Intro: Violin, then (before vocals)

  pm_______________:          pm_______________:

I made a little mistake on this tab on the second "riff" in verse one and verse two. It is supposed to be 3's instead of 6's. Sorry 'bout that. But, that is all the mistakes I made, hopefully. Hope this tab helps you.

Sound great to me. Didn't fidn any mistakes. All the others looked too simple. Great job (although it wasn't yours, but anyway), keep tabbin!

sounds great, and although the timing on the bridge is slighlty confusing to me, I still think what you have is right.

I want to post or [tab]
