Hi there. This may sound crazy but I need the chords to the traditional song "Little Brown Dog". I heard Taj Mahal do it, it sounded terrific, and I want to use it in my show. If anyone could send them to me it would be a great help.

Thanks,

Rob Edmonds

Joe, Thanks a million for the chords, you've saved me a lot of time! Would've e-mailed you personally, but couldn't find your address.

Just a couple of personal recollections concerning this song:

I learned it at the Folk Cellar in Greek Street, Soho [aka at various times & in various avatars the Skiffle Cellar, Establishment Club &c] from Gina Glazer when she was over here in about 1957-8. Sang it from the floor a few years later while attending a gig of Peter Bellamy's in Peterborough, I think it was. He was intrigued by it, and got me to put it on tape for him when we got back to my place -- he usually stayed over with Valerie & me when he had a gig round Cambridgeshire. He sang it on a few subsequent gigs, I was told, though don't think he ever recorded it.

So I sang it at his memorial concert a year after his death, relating above as reason for my doing so; & I recall Martin & Norma Carthy expressing some interest in these reminiscences.

It's on my youtube channel

... Gina's [& hence my] version pretty well identical with the one Dave Van Ronk had recorded. I imagine that would have been where she learnt it, tho I have only just tracked that recording down as it is now on YouTube.

So thanks yet again to Mudcat, whence one learns something new all the time, innit!
