Subject: Chord Req: Mississippi John Hurt - Waiting for You
From: GUEST,Stephen
Date: 16 Mar 07 - 11:15 PM

Can I please get a tab or chords for this song, I started trying to figure it out but I think there is some backing guitar soloing thing that screws me up.

Anyway, any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Full title is " "Waiting for You (I Forgive You Before I Go)". I'll look, but better you keep the thread up where the blues guys and gals can see it.

Yeah, I didn't think I'd need the full title, I searched all around the internet browsing sites but I couldn't find any tabs.

Thanks for trying to help.

Please don't give up hope. There are blues people here, and it's a matter of time before someone of them see this and are able to help.

I noticed that there were lots of blues people here, multiple times this site came up when I was searching for info and lyrics for Lead Belly songs. I don't have a registered name, but I just thought it would happen quicker, maybe I should just sharpen my senses and give it another good try learning it by ear.

khandu and Tweed are two of the good guys among the bluesmen. If you join Mudcat, am sure that one of them will be able to help you. You could send an e-mail. Khandu has transcribed several MJH songs and he knows quite a bit about the man.

this song is played in open D tuning with a capo on the 5th fret. strum it open then the second chord is a g shape on open D and third is an A shape with open D then you can figure out the melody with those chords.

Will you be faithful to me?

Is your heart good and true?
C                     G
While you sow sorrow, and in pain,
D                            *(riff)
Darling, I'm waiting for you.

G
Because of your cruel ways,
      C             G
I may never live to know.
   C          G
In justice to my true love,
       D                G
I'll forgive you before I go.

        rep. 1 & 2

If we cannot meet again
Till our troubles all are through,
Beyond the river of Jordan,
I'll still be waiting for you.

        rep. 2

When you seek my grassy mount,
Then our trouble all is through.
My days have been shortened
Whilst I've been waiting for you.

        rep. 2
