Bob:

For more years than I care to remember I have wanted to be able to perform this number for those to whom I sing on occasion. There were two things that prevented me from doing it -- 1.) The speed of the flat picking accompaniment and 2.) the inability to "translate" the lyrics from the only record I had of the song. You have removed one of those obstacles. Alas, I wish it had been the first !!. But, now that you have given me the words, perhaps I can get up the gumption to really tackle those John Herald riffs. Thanks so much and keep 'em coming !!
