    Great tune - heard many different performers doing versions of it

    Em D C Bm ( maybe B7) A

    the second part goes Bb and then Cminor then back to the Em D C Bm A thing

    the main melody is centered around a G ( E minor) scale

    I do have it written out in standard notation but I would have to scan it in - ( I don't have the electronic copy)

    is that legal to post ?

    I think this muse software will take a standard notation and tab it out for you - maybe I 'll give that a whirl
    hate tab.

    here is a meager attempt at tab - I don't have tab edit

    this is from ear so chords may not be exact

    John Reischman teaches this in his peghead nation course, not sure if you can just get that tune individually.

    Pretty sure it was Sam Bush on mandolin on the Acoustics recording.

    I think Sam played Fiddle and Mike Marshall played mandolin on Old Gray Coat.
