The structure of the song is simple and you pretty much play the same run 6 times
and then play the outro.

I'm just going to show the main parts and a few of the different ways to
play them. I will not go over the entire song, because it's too quiet and it would
take forever to get everything down perfectly. Besides, the only parts that really change
are where he shifts down to the A string (e.g.- at 0:12 seconds) and the bridges (0:20 and 
0:27 seconds). 

The bassline is played at ~208 bpm. 

Here's a good video of Robin playing the song:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0kEXb43idw



Key:
where # represents a fret number

#h# - hammer
#p# - pull
/ \ - slides, up and down respectively.
#b# - bend from normal note up to achieve bended note.
#r# - release bend from bended note to normal note.

Kind of hard to tell what if any pattern is going on there with that A 
string bass-line. The outro is played slower than the rest of the song,
~100 bpm.
