Tabbed by Jamie Phillips (jamiephillips22@hotmail.com)

Thanks to Derry Leach for pointing out that I should tab this absolutely beautiful tune.
This is definitely Bert at his best! It utilizes the standard Jansch picking pattern and 
should be fairly straightforward to play, although there are a couple of fingering variations 
you can use to suit your playing - I've given the most obvious one at the bottom of the tab. 
The intro and the instumental break are exactly the same as the verse. This tune is also on the 
recently released "Live In Glasgow" CD which features extremely early Bert recordings and is 
virtually the same but without flute. It's interesting to note that he was an absolute dynamite 
player with fabulous arranging abilities even in his extremely early days. Magic! :o)
