Thread Name: Chord Req: Slow Train (Flanders and Swann)
Subject: Chords Add: SLOW TRAIN (Flanders & Swann)

I've just had a quick listen and a rough version of the start is:

Miller's(1F) Dale for (5Am)Tideswell ...(3Gm) (1C7)
next 2 similarly
Kirby Muxloe ...
Mow Cop and Scholar Green ...

No (1F)more will I (1Am)go to (1Dm)Blandford (1F)Forum and (3Gm)Morte(1C7)hoe (3Gm) (1C7)
On the (1F)slow (1Am)train from (1Dm)Midsomer (1F)Norton and (5Dm)Mum(5Gm7)by (3C7)Road. (5Dm)(5Gm7)(3C7)
No (5F)churns, no (5Am)porter, no (6Dm7)cat on a (3Gm)seat
At (3Gm)Chorlton-cum-(3C7)Hardy or (6Bb)Chester-le-(5A7)Street.
We (10Dm)won't be (9DmMaj7)meeting ag(6Dm7)ain (6Dm6)
On the (3Gm)Slow (6Gm) (10Gm) (9C7)Train.

Here I'm using the inital number as the fret the chord starts on. If I had more time I'd do a better job of the chord description, but eg 1F is XX4211, 1Am is XX2210; most of them are obvious. 5Gm7 is XX5766, 6Dm7 is XX7768. The 10Dm.. section is XX0(10)(10)(10), XX0(10)(10)9, XX7768, XX7767, giving a chromatic descent on the 1st string.

I'm busy with other things at the moment, but if I have time tomorrow night, I'll have a closer look and do the chords for the bridge. Hope this is a help (if not, I can translate Terry's music too if you want).
