I don't know the song, but this always my go-to source for tabs... I hope this (or the site) helps.  Good luck!

Thanks Brian, I'll check this out.

The song is simple enough you really don't need a TAB for the bass. It's yet another song that uses the eternal I-IV-V chordal relationship. This time in D minor (i.e Dm-G-Am)

Ok...Nancy's part is: Am/G repeated twice; then Dm/Am repeated 3 times (Note: I'm gonna force this thing to use the courier font going forward so I can get things to line up if that's ok. )

Female:       Am             G 
Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring.

Am G
My summer wine is really made from all these things.

Dm Am
Take off your silver spurs and and help me pass the time.

Dm Am
And I will give to you summer wine.

Dm Am
Ohh-oh-oh summer wine.

For this type of song, alternating between the root of the chord and the 5th
works really well. Especially if you play the 5th as the low note. Fortunately
that type of line is really easy to play on a bass.

The two strings should be tuned a 4th apart. (i.e. E-A or A-D or D-G or
whatever as long as it's a 4th interval.)

I'd start by alternating between the root and the 5th using the chord name
to identify the root.

Play the root note on the top string...

The fifth of the same chord is directly under it on the lower string. So if you're
on the 3rd fret, whatever note is on the top string has its 5th on the 3rd fret
of the string directly under it...

Pretty easy huh? Boom-boom, boom-boom! Like a
tympani - that infamous Bassline of Doom!

This works for almost any song. And once you get the beat down nice
and tight you can embellish what you play by syncopating or alternating.
So for the Am you could play A-E-A-E-A-E-A-E or A-E-E-A-A-E-A-E
and so on. Whatever sounds good and feels right. (Bass is all about feel.)

Rough TAB for a guitar tuned A-D:

Am:
7--------7--------7--------7----
----7--------7--------7--------7

G:
5--------5--------5--------5----
----5--------5--------5--------5

Dm:
0--------0--------0--------0----
----0--------0--------0--------0

Got the idea?

Here's a link to the chords. Have at it!




Quick aside... it seems to my ears that Nancy's song is very similar to the Pete Seeger classic Kisses Sweeter than Wine.

Here's Noel Paul Stookey, the "Paul" of Peter. Paul and Mary showing an audience how to do it.

It's really lovely and slightly bitter-sweet, like most good folk songs - and a real crowd pleaser. Good number to add to your repertoire if you're playing out.

Luck!

Thanks eK,   will use this.
