This is one of those "makes me cry, but I'm not sure why" songs. Usually that means I should learn it. Lyrics are in the DT, of course. Anyone know the chords?

Thanks in advance.

Roger-

I had a similar thought some years ago and was unable to decode the chords. I'd also be interested if someone has figured them out. It's a pretty scary song if you've been any where near the situation described.

Sorry I missed you in Baltimore 3 weeks ago.

Animaterra,

I took your advice and E-mailed Bob. I'll let you know if I get a reply.

Well, I am an impatient sort sometimes. Bob has not yet answered my e-mail. I do not fault him. I think he published the chords somewhere. Anyone else know 'em?

Maybe they're posted behind the bar at the Wharf Rat at Fells Point.

Cheerily,

Finally found the following sites:

First Site


Second Site


The second site is a chord transcription of the tune as done by David Wilcox. It appears to be the same, but there are sample chord structures to guide you if you don't know a D+2 chord. Also, the second says it is in "Drop D" tuning. Another source says that Bob does the song in standard tuning.

I know the chords are right 'cause it makes me cry to play it; just like Bob's version makes me cry when I hear it.

Thanks to whoever took the time to look.
