Song Title: Waiting for the Bus
Artist: Violent Femmes
----------------------------------------------

ok, this is my 1st bass tab. this song has a good bass part, but i haven't found any postings for it, so i decided to figure it out myself. i'm pretty sure about most of this. it's a pretty easy song, and it's a bit repetitive. listen to the song for the timing.

Part 1:
-0---0------------------ ]
---------0-2h4-2-------- ] repeat 6 times
------------------------ ]
------------------------ ]

Part 2 walkdown:
-0-------
---3h2---
---------
---------

Part 2:
this part comes after "standing by the corner, waiting for the bus.."

-------0--2-0--------0--2-0---------------------
----2-------------2----------------0--2-0-------
-3-------------3----------------2-------------2-
-----------------------------3-------------3----

--------------------0--2-0--------0----
-0h2-0-----------2-------------2-----2-
-------3h2-0--3-------------3----------
---------------------------------------

* Part 3 walkdown:
"my precious time keeps slipping past.." 
--------------------------------------
-0-----------0----------0-------------
-----------------------------3--2---0-
--------------------------------------

Part 3:
-------------- ]
-------0--2-0- ] repeat 6 times
----2--------- ]
-3------------ ]

* another Part 1 walkdown:
"the damn city bus moves so slow" 
--------------------------0-----------
----------------------------3--2--0---
--------------------------------------
-----3---------3----------------------

do Part 1 again
then do Part 3 walkdown
then there's a part with just drums & talking..

Part 4 walkdown:
after "will you please open up the back door?"

Part 4:
-------0--2-0--------0--2-0-----------------------------
----2-------------2----------------0--2-0--------0--2-0-
-3-------------3----------------2-------------2---------

*Part 5:
"you got the mother and the kids
E-------------------------------3-2--3
"you got the guy and his date"
E----------------------------3-2--3
"we all get mad"
E--------------3-2--3
"we all get laid"
E---------------3-2--3
"looks like somebody"
E-------------------3-2--3
"forgot about us"
E---------------3-2--3
"standin on the corner, waiting for the bus"
-0------------0----------------------------
----------------3-----3-2-------------2-0--
-------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------

do Part 1 again

* Ending:
"my precious time keeps slipping past"
-------------------------------------------
------------------------0------------------
-5---------4-5------------3--2--0----------
-----------------------------------3-------

the rhythm of the lines with the * in front of them are matched up with the words
