Don't know what key you want, but I do it in F. On the 12-string, the chord position is G. (12 is tuned down to D.)

[G] I'd be more than, etc. [Walk it to C.]
If I could catch a train and [G] ride
If I reach [B7th] Atlanta with [C] no place to go
[G] Make me a [D] pallet on your [G] floor.

[C] Make me a pallet on your [G] floor.
[C] Make me a pallet on your [G] floor.
Make it soft, make it [B7th] low, so my [C] good girl will never know,
[G] make me a [D] pallet on your [G] floor.

I do this blues style, and, I HATE to hear it done bluegrass style. In my opinion, blues should never be done in f*****g overdrive!

Hey Kendall! Are you saying you tune to an open D? If so I can do that but don't know the chord positions. Can you reccomend a site that can help me? Jeepman

In C, the John Hurt version goes this way:
 C7   F                       C    C7
Make me a pallet on your floor
C7 F C C7
Make me a pallet on your floor
C C7 E7
Make it soft, make it low,
F D7
so my good gal, she won't know
C G7 C
That you made me a pallet on your floor.
I surely hope those line up with the words of the song (from Digitrad). But that C7 into F is the key to the John Hurt version. He also uses an F9 (little finger on the 2d string, 3d fret) for melody there in the F parts.

Good luck. It's a good song.

Let's try that again. I'll put the chord names where the chord changes go:

(C7) / (F) Make me a pallet on your (C) floor (C7)
(F) Make me a pallet on your (C) floor
Make it (C7) soft, make it (E7) low,
So my (F) good gal, she won't (D7) know
That you (C) made me a (G7) pallet on your (C) floor. (C7)

Hope that helps.

Bob Clayton

I dont use an open D...I tune the 12 string down a full tone. If I want it up to pitch, I just clamp a capo on the second fret. That brings it up to standard pitch

Thanks to all of you. Brain surgery and rocket science are a piece of cake. Guitars are a wonderful mystery. Jeepman

G7&D7 ???I cant hear where those chords fit or go in there anywhere.
Try this:
BarF                     C   C7
Make me a pallet on your floor
BarF                              Bar G
Make me down a pallet on your floor


C       E7          F
Make it soft make it low

C          G             C C-7
So my good gal she won't know

Hank, I take it that barf doesn't mean the same thing to guitarists that it means to the rest of us.

Sandy Denny didn't do it bluegrass style! One of her earliest recordings.

Jo-Ann Kelly did a fine version.

I'd ahve sworn that the chord change came in the first syllable of the word "pallet"
