Poetry And Prose Bass Tab
Note: This tab is based on Jeffrey Swing's (js018d@uhura.cc.rochester.edu) transcription of the song, but this is how I play it, and personally think it sound close enough, even without the wammy bar. I will use a small 'p' before the fret number to denote a pull-off.

Near the end of the song, I think Les starts to mix these two riffs together, but I haven't played with that yet.
