It's me again...

In my first entry above (17 Dec 09 @ 11:54AM), I primarily wanted to provide the lyrics for Sam Henry쳌fs version, but I could have been a little more complete about playing the tune and in what key.

Although Sam Henry쳌fs version indicates it쳌fs in the key of G, Andy actually plays it in the key of E쳌ó. On the Gibson H1 mandola strung with mandolin strings and tuned FCGC as mentioned above, this therefore requires capo3 or, alternatively, capo1 if playing on a 쳌enormal쳌f mandolin tuned GDAD. So, the resulting 쳌eopen쳌f tuning is A쳌óE쳌óB쳌óE쳌ó.

Great love to all;
