"Under the Bridge" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
Bass part by Michael Balzary (Flea)
Tabbed by Dan Bogosian (UtBDan)

NOTE: This is exactly what Flea plays on the "Off the Map" DVD.

If you want to know what's changed, he plays a part before the chorus, the chorus has 
slightly, and the bridge has changed A LOT.

POST INTRO, PRE-VERSE:
(after "Lonely as I am, together we cry")
G -------------------|
D -------------------|

NOTE:
"9~~/0" means hold the note for a while, then slide down to the first
fret and let go of the string so it plays an open.
