Zhenya -

I play an Bastari-30 Anglo concertina out of G. I was just trying Jez's chords out on my 5-string banjo (capoed up 7 and playing out of C-position) and have decided that I must have folk-processed the melody in my head. The more appropriate chords now seem more like this:

Oh, when the Brockie lads come back, with the first days of sum-mer,
The whole town comes out to watch them pass,
In their trail-ers and vans, full of candy, rides and plea-sure,
And a fond smile for each and eve-ry lass.

Oh, the Brockie lads are bad, but the Brockie lads are bon-ny,
Oh, the Brockie lads are all they've said and done,
And I never loved but once, she was the fairest of any,
But a-way with a Brockie lad she's gone.

This is all very puzzling.;~)
