Thread Name: Odd chord progression in Tom Paxton song
Subject: RE: Odd chord progression in Tom Paxton song
I believe that Pat's Nectar of God is actually in E minor rather than E major. He occasionally hammers on D string on Em for Esus4, but it's definitely not E major. Not strange anymore: Em and D.

Tom's I Don't Want Your Pardon is definitely in E major. You can't find it on any record - it was scheduled to be on the 1975 Private Stock album, Something in My Life, but didn't wind on it. It's not hard to guess the reason.
