Bass tabs with lyrics

It Will Rain - Bruno Mars

Tuning: standard

Note: This song does not really have a traditional bass part, but this is what
I play when I cover this song. It fits nicely. I tend to play more notes and
connecting bits than transcribed here, but this is the core of what I play.

Video of this bass cover:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2DdCgEcXZE&lc=aP8fI63pQrVWSLBbOKq0OJzlFkRTtEBNUjMK2PXVVTY

(I posted this video long before I made this tab and I was just improvising.
Due to several requests for tabs in the comments, I decided to finally do it.
This tab is somewhat based on how I played it originally, minus the various
flubs I made)

Update: I just did a video of this song specifically using this tab.
