Since the recent passing of Fred Hellerman, I've been thinking a lot about this lovely little song.

Here is a video from 2010, and while the chords Mr. Hellerman used are fully visible, I confess I haven't the expertise to decipher them.

Can anyone out there help? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

In honor of Fred who gifted us with endless pleasure here is the my simple strummer's low-tech version that is not precise but close enough when tabs and notes mean zilch:

Start in A then pick an Am chord at 3rd fret slide to 5th fret and back to 3rd fret. No bar needed just pluck those strings.
   
A then play a barred F on 3rd fret and slide it north to the 2nd fret.
Stay on that fret.
Play Am barred on the 2nd fret then on the same 2nd fret E (barred)
do this twice then Am again on 2nd fret and then a B7 on the 3rd
to Em on 2nd fret and regular A7.

The chorus is D then A6(bar)
Em on 2nd fret and A7 on the same 2nd fret
then E7   

A then again F on 3rd fret slide F to 2nd fret
and Bm (Am on 2nd fret) to E7
and A then do the intro slide again (above)

Also there is a simple slide before the E7 that looks fancy but is actually just a D on the 4th fret slid up to D and then E.

Have fun!

"...here is the my simple strummer's low-tech version..."

Well, everything in life is relative, isn't it? LOL!

I guess it's time for this bare-bones guitar player to try and up his game!

But seriously - many thanks. It's a lovely song and perhaps I will eventually be able to do it justice.
