Waiting For The Bus Bass Tab

Song Title: Waiting for the Bus
Artist: Violent Femmes
----------------------------------------------

ok, this is my 1st bass tab. this song has a good bass part, but i haven't found any postings for it, so i decided to figure it out myself. i'm pretty sure about most of this. it's a pretty easy song, and it's a bit repetitive. listen to the song for the timing.

Part 1:
-0---0------------------ ]
---------0-2h4-2-------- ] repeat 6 times
------------------------ ]
------------------------ ]

Part 2 walkdown:
-0-------
---3h2---
---------
---------

Part 2:
this part comes after "standing by the corner, waiting for the bus.."

-------0--2-0--------0--2-0---------------------

-----------------------------3-------------3----

--------------------0--2-0--------0----
-0h2-0-----------2-------------2-----2-
-------3h2-0--3-------------3----------
---------------------------------------

* Part 3 walkdown:
"my precious time keeps slipping past.." 
--------------------------------------
-0-----------0----------0-------------
-----------------------------3--2---0-
--------------------------------------

Part 3:
-------------- ]
-------0--2-0- ] repeat 6 times
----2--------- ]
-3------------ ]
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/v/violent_femmes/waiting_for_the_bus_btab_ver_2.html ]
* another Part 1 walkdown:
"the damn city bus moves so slow" 
--------------------------0-----------
----------------------------3--2--0---
--------------------------------------
-----3---------3----------------------

do Part 1 again
then do Part 3 walkdown
then there's a part with just drums & talking..

Part 4 walkdown:
after "will you please open up the back door?"
