Default Country Tabs

Hello all...being I'm a new bass player and late to the game...are there any cool bass tabs for traditional country music? I like the easy "walking bass lines", if you will.
I just bought a Hartke HD 50 practice amp...looking to start playing.

For an example...great song to try is Family traditional by Hank Williams Jr.

Thanks

Playing bass on a country song generally requires using less notes to get the job done.

Think of the simplest thing you can play, and then play half of that.

Try this one. It's the basic two-beat feel (mostly half notes) for a moderate tempo country song.

Bars 4, 8, and 10 are examples of the classic quarter note walkup (or walkdown).

Jambalaya is ridiculously easy.(if you can get the feel) I recorded it but it's sampled, so I'm treating it as a study piece.
