This track was also on the Pulp Fiction soundtrack.

Son Of A Preacher Man

Daniel Gebhardt's submition is pretty much spot on. The intro riff
is very slightly out, which i've tabbed out below.

/ = slide up
\ = slide down
< > = natural harmonic

E -------12-<12>-------------
B -11/12------------13\12----
G -12/13------------14\13----
D -----------------------14--
A ---------------------------
E ---------------------------

If anyone is interested in the bassline, it's very simple, and is
based around major pentatonic shapes.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/dusty_springfield/son_of_a_preacher_man_btab.html ]
It starts like this:
G -----9--9----------------------------9--9-------------------------
D ----------------------9--9h11-------------------------9--9--9h11--
A -7----------7--7h9/11-----------7--7--------7---9/11--------------
E ------------------------------------------------------------------

then just follows the root notes with the occasional major
pentatonic run.

E major pentatonic:

G -----------------9--11--13-  once you've got that shape down,
D ----------9--11------------  you can start it on any note to get
A 7--9--11-------------------  that note's major pentatonic, eg. if you
E ---------------------------  play the same shape starting on the 7th
			       fret of the E string you've got Bmaj
Hope this makes sense.
