This is how I've been playing this but:

1) this is my first ever attempt to submit tab
2) I have only recently started playing bass (previously lead guitar)
3) Haven't heard this song in years - worked it out from memory

Emphasize the fretted notes over the open A string throughout - vibrato and subtle 
can be used to give a fretless bass sound. Keep the feel loose and the slides up to the 12th 
10th frets smooth.
