Tuning:standard - EADG

This is one of the best rock and roll songs ever and should be part of every bassist'
i couldnt believe this song hadnt been tabbed for bass yet so thought id have a bash. the
little richard version has the guitar playing chords F Bb and C but i thought this 
sounded to heavy or too high for the song when converted to bass and so i moved the bass
down three frets. however if you want to play the original chord base, or muck around 
a heavy metal version of the song, which quite frankly would be awesome, then just change 
the 5's to 1's and the 7's to 3's
