This tune is played on a 5 string bass in standard tuning. Low D's are played on the 3rd
fret of the B string. If you have a 4 string bass, substitute those notes for a D on the 
fret of the A string
The progression for most of the song is Em G D Am

verse:

G----------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------5------5-7-----------------|
E-0------0--2-3------3--5------------5-----8-7-5-3---|
B----------------------------------------------------|

verse 2:

G--------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------|
A----------10----------12-14-----12----------------|
E-12----------------14-------------------h(5)s-----|
B--------------------------------------------------|

For the last note, try hammering onto the 5th fret without plucking the string, then
slide downwards
The rest of verse 2 is the same as verse 1. Chorus 2 is very similar to Chorus 1 so
we'll skip ahead...

Bridge:

Outro chorus is similar to the first 2, but when it repeats the bass adds some variations:

G--------------------------------------|

E-0-0-----x0-0-2-2-3-3-----3-3----5----|

great tab. I don't have a 5 string, but the D on the 5th fret of the A string works fine. I tried playing the song in drop D, but it was too hard to play the descending lick in the verse.
