The Joker - Steve Miller Band (1973)
Written By: Eddie Curtis, Ahmet Ertegün, and Steve Miller.
Bass Tab

Here's the correct version in the correct key,
with the correct timing.
Listen to this 'YouTube' Link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZo88P1Ie94

Each increment = 1/32 note, so 2 inc's = 1/16 note,
4 inc's = 1/8 note, 8 inc's = 1/4 note, etc.

There are no sustained notes - each note is a 1/16 note.

Intro/Verse (2 repeating measures) -

4/4 TIME @ 82 BPM

  1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +    1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +
G|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
D|------------------------------0-|--------------------------------|
A|--------------0-1---1-------3---|3---3---------0-1-1-1-1-0-0-----|
E|1---1-------3-------------------|------------3---------------3-3-|

... I'll add the 'Chorus' later... Gotta go for now...

The key is definitely F#. Listen to the song and play along and it's very obvious! This is the only correct tab for the bass part :)
