Sorry, accidently posted it without anthing in :) Anyway, i was wondering if anynone had a tab of Jansch's Blackwater side. I've been looking for one for some time, and the only lead ive got on how to play it, was about 5 secnds of video of him playing it. Any help would be much appreciated.

You want  Fingerstyle Guitar.  It's in the Bert Jansch section.

Brought on with your want and will... I thought it was Wanton will? Are these lyrics at the blicky by the original writer, or someone who posted the lyrics and guitar instructions, with apologies for being an ignoramus?

Bert played the tune originally in DGDGBE , ie dropped D tuning. I learned it twenty years ago, then found I couldn't sing it without using a capo on the on the seventh fret. I think Bert may have tuned all the strings down a tone to sing it easily. A tab was published in Guitar magazine in the 70s. It's not very hard or I couldn't have done it!

The lyrics given at that site are indeed gibberish, and, not being a guitar player, I have no idea whether the (quite separate) tab file is accurate or not.  I simply answer the question asked, in this case, and leave it to Tony to decide whether or not it suits his needs.

Bit of thread creep here....Polly Bolton, an English folk singer, does a brilliant version of Blackwaterside on Bert Jansch's Compendium. Not to everyone's taste as it's a bit of a walk on the wild side, but I love her voice and arrangement.
