Hey Bulldog has some of McCartney's really fine bass work. =) And the other bass tab on
site for this song sucks. So here's my version.

Not 100% accurate, and there are way too many variations (takes up way too much time to
out and tab). But these tabs are good enough to mess with and improvise.

Intro
G|-------------------------------------|
D|---------------12----14----15----16--|
A|--12h14-12h14------14----14----------|
E|-------------------------------------|

G|--------------------------------|
D|-----------12----16----15----14-|
A|--14-14------14----14-----------|
E|--------------------------------|


Riff 2 (Verse and Solo)
Varies throughout different parts of the song. Just improv if you're jamming. And if you
the exact basslines, then figure em out yourself. Work out your ears. =D

      Sheepdog           Standing in the rain
G|----------------------------------------|
D|--9-99999997--6-----------79-79--9-7----|
A|------------------9-9--9----------------|
E|----------------------------------------|

      Bullfrog           Doing it again
G|-----------------------------------7----|
D|--9-9--999-76-----------7-97-97-7/9-----|
A|--------------7--8--9-9-----------------|
E|----------------------------------------|

Riff 3
    Some kind of innocence is measured out in miles
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|--7-7---7--4-4---4---2-2----04-6-04-06---|
A|------7--------4-------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

    What makes you think that you're so special when you smile?
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|--7-7---7--4-4-----------4-4-----4-4-----|
A|------7--------4--3--2-2----2-22---------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

Riff 4
    You can talk to me...
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------|
E|--7-7-7-2/7-7-7-2/7-7-7-2/7-7-2/7-7------|

                         ...If you're
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------|
A|--7-7-7-2/7-7-7-2/7-7-7-2/7-7-2/7-7------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

   Lonely you can talk to me
G|--------------------|
D|--------------------|
A|--------5--7-7-7-7--|
E|--7-7-7-------------|

Riff 5
Basically the same as intro but on a lower octave.

G|------------------|
D|------------------|
A|-------5--7--8--9-|
E|--7-7----7--7-----|

G|------------------|
D|------------------|
A|-------5--9--8--7-|
E|--7-7----7--7-----|


Outro

G|-----------------------|
D|-------5h7-7777777--77-|
A|-----------------------|
E|--7-7------------------|

G|-----------------|
D|-----------7979--|
A|--9-9--9--9------|
E|-----------------|

G|--------------------|
D|--9-9-9--7--97-9-7--|
A|--------9-----------|
E|--------------------|

G|-------------------|
D|-------------------|
A|--9-9---7-9-9---7--|
E|------9-------9----|

G|-------------------|
D|--9-9---7-9-9---7--|
A|------9-------9----|
E|-------------------|

G|-------------------|
D|--------------7----|
A|--9-9---7-9-9---9--|
E|------9------------|

    There are lots of variations in the outro, and some of them are just basically
octaves of B and F# (that's 9 on D string and 7 on E string for B, and 9 on A string and 11
G string for F#.)

     Well, hell, the throughout the entire song McCartney is throwing in improvised
So just get the feel for it and have fun with the basic outline I've tabbed for you. =D
