I'd love to get the chords for Old Ballyhoo from the Charlie Poole CD, High Wide & Handsome By Loudon Wainwright III. It's the one that starts out:
    Mr. won't you lend a poor dime a cripple?
    I'm about a thousand dollars from my home.
    Ain't got no mile in my pocket,
    No head to stick my hole through
    And I don't know where I'll die when I go to.

I'm lookin'. However, as an aside, it was written by Dick Connette.

Thanks GUEST,999. Here's what I'm trying now. The second line of the verse may not be right. I can't remember the tune correctly and don't have access to the CD right now.

(G)Mr. won't you lend a (C) poor dime a cripple?
I'm a(A)bout a thousand dollars from my (D7) home.
Ain't got no (G) mile in my pocket,
No (C) head to stick my hole through
And I (D7) don't know where I'll die when I (Em)go to.

I've tried (D7)livin' in the valley and (G)workin' in the mill
I (Em)like bootleggin' better runnin' (A)whiskey through these (D7)hills
Now I've (G)come down from those mountains
And I'm (C) livin' on the bum
If you've (A) got change for a dollar
Why (D7)don't you give me some?

I have to go. No luck anywhere, PHJim. Sorry.

I can't help with chords. Never heard the song. However, if you could mp3 it to me I'd be glad to take a stab at putting the chords in, although it seems you don't need the help.

Lemme know.

Thank you thank you Brakn. I had the tune completely wrong in my head, but strumming through your chords brought it back to me. That's exactly what I needed.
