My first attempt at a tab. I can't guarantee the tuning for the CD version, but
careful observation of Bongo playing the song live tells me that this is how he plays
it, or at least it is close. However it is still just my interpretation so don't take
it as gospel; usual caveats apply.

As I am both a novice tabber and bassist any feedback or corrections would be
welcome.




Figure 1: Main riff (verse)

G:—————————————————————————————————————|
D:—————————————————————————————————————|
A:—————————————————————————————————————|
E:——0——0———————————————0———————————————|

Play this ten times from about 0:35 until about 1:35 (CD version of course).
On the CD the notes are pretty clear but on stage they are often played kind of
staccato by Bongo muting each note as soon as it is played.


Then the chorus:

Figure 2
G:—————————————————————————————————————|
D:—————————————————————————————————————|
A:—————————————————————————————————————|
E:——121——1/51——1—1/71———————————————|


Then back to figure 1 twice, then the little magic Bongo flick which I can't do
without any effects. Follow this with figure 3 eight times until about 2:40

Figure 3:

G:—————————————————————————————————————|
D:—————————————————————————————————————|
A:—————————————————————————————————————|
E:——0——0——0————————————0———————————————|


Then play this slightly different chorus riff twice:

Figure 4
G:—————————————————————————————————————————|
D:—————————————————————————————————————————|
A:—————————————————————————————————————————|
E:——121——1/51—1—1/71———10—10———8—10——10—|


Then figure 5 three times to slide () on the last repeat

Figure 5
G:————————————————————————————————————|
D:————————————————————————————————————|
A:————————————————————————————————————|
E:———10——10————————8h10—10————————————|

Rest for a couple of riffs, then play figure 1 three times,
then play figure 1 four times extending and adding distortion on the last E.

Repeat the chorus (figure 4) twice, but kind of mute the slides.

Finally, figure 5 five or six times to fadeout.
