What do they mean by 'SN BASS' such as below in the song "Dark Hollow." What do I play? What do the *'s mean?

E* F#* G* A E A * SN Bass
I'd rather be in some dark hollow
A D A
Where the sun don't ever shine
A A7 D
Then to be at home alone and knowin' that you're gone
A E A
Would cause me to lose my mind.

E* F#* * SN Bass

G* A E A
So blow your whistle freight train
A D A
Take me far on down the track
A A7 D D7
I'm going away, I'm leaving today
A E A
I'm goin', but I ain't comin' back.

I'd rather be in some dark hollow
Where the sun don't ever shine
Then to be in some big city,
In a small room, with you on my mind.

I'd rather be in some dark hollow
Where the sun don't ever shine
Then to see you another man?s darlin?
And to know that you?ll never be mine

It's G#, isn't it? I'll check.

The * is pointing to the note

* SN Bass, which means play the single note in the bass.
