Thread Name: Chords Req: The Naked Highwayman (Steve Tilston)
Subject: RE: Chords Req: The Naked Highwayman
The tune, lyrics and chords are all in the Fairport Songbook 2, which is usually available from most folk music stores, Amazon (I think) and certainly the Fairport website.
It's a b*gger to sing up to speed. I've tried it slower, with the emphasis on beats 1 and 4 in the bar - gives it an unusual rhythm and lets the singer and the listener catch all the lyrics.
BTW, what's happening? Twice now in this thread, I've got halfway through a posting and the system has submitted a blank post, then taken me back to my incomplete post (you'll see an empty jonm poting before each of mine with text in). This hasn't happened before.
