I'm suprised that the chords are not in DT along with the words but I hope this helps

One (C)evening fair I took the (Dm)air
Down (F)by Black - water -(C)side
'Twas in (Am)gazing all a-(Dm)round (G)me
'Twas the (F6)Irish lad I (C)spied

Nutty, since they've been written inside the last 70 years by a professional musician, they are unlikely to be featured in a collection of public domain tunes.

I don't have time to look out the record and write the tab out for Black Water Side, but I can say that it is a traditional song, not written by Bert Jansch, and I think that Bert played it in a drop D (ie. dadgbe) tuning.

The lyrics make me think of verse 6 of BLACKSMITH COURTED ME

What did you promise me when you lay beside me?
You promised to marry me and not deny me
It's witness I've got none but the Almighty
And he will punish you for slighting of me

I think it is likely in DADGAD

Led Zeppelin did a version very much based on Bert Jansch's on Led Zeppelin I and that is definitely in DADGAD. The following is a very rough approximation of something like the main theme and beginning of the tune - there are probably lots of extra notes thrown in and open strings hit during it but the bones are there I think

Bert's version is definitely in DADGAD.

I have been singing it for fifty years and it is an old traditional Irish song. Bert and I are from the same city ... Glasgow. He went south to England in his teens and lost his Glasgow brogue and not speaks with an english dialect.

Davy Graham started the folk baroque sound, wonderful splashy steel strings that sometime slapped against the fingerboard for a percussive effect. Independently Bert Jansch and John Renburn played wonderfully in that style, and also played as a duo. John is settled in Scotland in the Borders and close to another friend, Archie Fisher.

Actually the video on youtube of Bert playing this song is definitely in drop D tuning, capo-ed at either the 2nd or 3rd fret. 3rd fret to match the video. Watch the chord forms in the video, they do not work in DADGAD. I learned a DADGAD version and it sounds nothing like his. As a matter of fact, I haven't heard two versions by Bert that sound alike, so there ya go!
