    I don't have the tabs, but:

    It's in the key of F major.

    The intro, chorus and outro are a 12 bar blues:

    F///|////|////|////|Bb///|////|F///|////|C///|Bb///|
    F///|////|

    The verse is:

    F///|////|Bb///|////|F///|C///|F///|C///|

    The bass plays straight eighths, all roots, except for the F chords on the chorus, which is:

    efffefff

    The last measure of the verse is:

    fccccccc


    Hope this helps.
