Another song from one of the greatest albums of all times.
I've also pretty much transcribed the bassline. It's at the
bottom of the file.
INTRO:
 
 ------

G C D [play four times]
VERSE 1:
 
 --------

[G]Tell your man I'm stuck on this lovely [C]girl[D]
[G]'Cause to me she mean all the [C]world[D]
[G]But then she like another [C]guy[D]
[G]I fall down dead, she never see the tears[C] I c[D]ry
CHORUS:
 
 -------

Said [G]please, please, please do not [C]go[D]
[G]Please, please, please do not [C]go[D]
[G]Please, please, please do not [C]go[D]
[G]Please, please, please do not [C]go[D] [G] [C] [D]
BRIDGE:
 
 -------

[C]How long can the days go [G]on
[C] When my love is so [G]strong
[C] And I know I cannot tell a [G]lie
[C] I wanna see him go [D]by, bye, bye bye, bye bye bye bye
VERSE 2: []
 
 --------

And I wonder, I wonder what she would say
If I told her, if I told her that I felt this way
You know it might make a turn, might make a turn,
might make a turn either way
So all I can do is patiently pray, pray, I pray pray pray
CHORUS: []
 
 -------

Said please, please, please do not go
Please, please, please do not go
Please, please, please do not go
Please, please, please do not go
BASS-SOLO:
 
 ----------

No way in hell can I transcribe this solo. Besides, this is a
guitar tab, not a bass tab. The solo is basically a variation
on the main bassline, look at the bottom of the file to see
the basslines for the song.
BRIDGE: []
 
 -------

How long can the days go on
When my love is so strong
And I know I cannot tell a lie
Oh, whoh, whoh, I wanna see him go by, bye, bye bye, bye bye bye bye
VERSE 3: []
 
 --------

I tell you man, I'm stuck, I'm stuck, I'm stuck on this lovely girl
And you know I could travel, I could travel over the whole world
And you know what she does, she turn around, she turn around
she like another guy
Oh what can I do, I fall down dead, she never see the tears I cry
CHORUS: []
 
 -------

Please, please, please do not go
Please, please, please do not go
Please, please, please do not go, oh oh
Please, please, please do not go, oh
Please, please, please, you hurt me, so
Please, please, please, you hurt me, so
Please, please, please I got something to, show...
[fade out] 
B A S S L I N E S:
/ = slide up p = pull-off
The INTRO is just this:
 
 G|-----------------|
 D|-2h3--2----------|
 A|--------5---1/2--| Then go straight away into the VERSE-BASSLINE.
 E|-----------------|

OK, here's the VERSE-BASSLINE:
[G] [C] [D]  
 
 G|-------------------------------------------------------|
 D|-------------5--5-3-2-------------------3p2---2--------|
 A|-------1/2-5----------5--3--2--3--0--5------5---0h2----|
 E|---3---------------------------------------------------|

and sometimes, like the end of the verse, it goes like this:
[G] [C] [D]  
 
 G|--------------------------------------------------|
 D|-------------5--5-3-2-----------------------------|
 A|-------1/2-5----------5--3--2--3--0--5--3--2--0---|
 E|---3----------------------------------------------|

Now the CHORUS-BASSLINE:
[G] [C] [D]  
 
 G|-------------------------------------------------|
 D|--5----3----2------------------------------------|
 A|-----------------5----3--2--3--0--5--3--2--0-----|
 E|-------------------------------------------------|

And finally, the BRIDGE-BASSLINE:
[C] [G]  
 
 G|---------------------------------------------|
 D|---------------------------------2-----------|
 A|--3---2---0------------2-----5-5-----5--2----|
 E|--------------3-----3-----3------------------|

|
Play this three times and then this
|
[C] [D]  
 
 G|---------------------------------------------|
 D|---------------------------------------------|
 A|--3---2---0-------5-----3-5----5--3--2--0----|
 E|--------------3------------------------------|

That should give you everything you need.
Enjoy!
