Subject: RE: Soalin Tab, please U's this 1, I change the words.

Tab: Rocky Staats
Words: Adam Staats
Album: Peter, Paul, and Mary in Concert
Artist: Peter, Paul, and Mary
Song: 'Soalin'

This was is the version my father tought me.  It is similiar to the
other tabs sent in, but has a lot more added to it.  If you start at the
beginning of the song and other guitarist start in after you at the
first verse, it can sound incredible.   It is a song all guitarist
should learn.  On the record it sounds like it is capoed on the third
fret, but my record player could just be fast as old as it is, but I
know it is at least capoed on second fret.  I prefer tuning it up one
and a half step instead on capoing it.

'Soalin'

Hey, ho, nobody home,
meat, nor drink, nor money have I none
can't you, we be merry,
hey ho, nobody home.

Chorus: A soulin, a soulin, a soulin cake
Please, good missus, a soulin cake
An apple, a pear, a plum or a cherry
Any good thing to make us all merry
One for Peter, two for Paul
Three for Him who made us all

God Bless the master of this house, the mistress also
And all the little children who around your table grow
the cattle in your stable, the dog at your front door.
And all that dwells within your gates
we wish you ten times more
chorus:

Go down into your cellor,
and see what you can find,
if the barrels are all empty
we hope you will be kind.
with the apple in your sill, and the pumpkin in your chair
We won't come no more till this time next year
chorus:

The streets are very dirty and my shoes are very thin
I've got a little pocket I can put a penny in
If you haven't got a penny, a ha' penny will do
If you haven't got a ha' penny, then God bless you.
chorus:

To the lord and praises,
to all the angels and saints,
and to loving brotherhood,
each other now embrace,
if only be kind and pray for us.
time has come, enjoy.

Awesome job. I have the concert on video, and both guitars capo it on the second fret. I play prefer to play it with 2 guitars. The high part sounds AWESOME on my 12 string. For reference, Paul Stookey played the high part, and Peter Yarrow played the low part.

I want to post or [tab]
