Tuning:Standard 5-string (BEADG)    

This song CAN be played on a 4 string in drop-D tuning, however I have seen them 
live and he plays it on a 5-string.  
Ironically he has the same type of 5-string bass that I own, so I tabbed it for a 
5-string.

This was my first tab, but i worked really hard to make it perfect.  If you have 


First half of the song:
G|------------------------|
D|------------------------|
A|-----6h4-6--------------|
E|---------------6--4--6--|  X repeat until around 2:46
B|--4---------------------|     (the final note played when it stops is the 4 on the B string, 
			    almost as if he is going to do it again and stops.)


         2 seconds of rest before this starts at around 2:48:

G|---------------------|
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|    
E|------------6--4--6--|  x7  (ends 1 measure before the singing comes back in)
B|---4-4---------------|  ("hit" the 4s on the B string to get the grizzly "thump" sound.
			The index finger works perfectly, and is actually what he does)

G|---------------------|
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|  x9  
B|---4-4---------------|  (again, do the "hit" thing)


This again
G|---------------------|
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|  x repeat until 1 measure after the lead singer says "laid in the dirt"
E|------------6--4--6--|  			                  you stop almost exactly at 4:18
B|---4-4---------------|  (still do the hit on the B string)  


G|---------------------|
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|  x7  
B|---4-4---------------| 

Final note:
G|---------------------|
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|  
B|---4~~~~~~~~---------| (it rings out for a while)



| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~~~ let note ring out
