The real song is a lot more complicated after the first chorus, but this will get 
you started. I've always loved this song, especially since I got my bass. After 
playing my old tab sheet for a while, I noticed a few minor errors. This updated March 10, 2011.

This is a perfect tab. Love the layout and combination of bass tab, chords, and lyrics. Brilliant!

It's not correct, but you can make it work.

Would advise listening to the song and using this tab if you're going to use it at all.
