Yarmouth Town, a tradtional Sailor-pulling-a-string tale arranged by Bellowhead! 
I think there are two different chord progressions for verses, one with an E and 
one without. See what you think! Any corrections please message me :) 

Have fun 

Yarmouth Town. Bellowhead.

A                      D
In Yarmouth town there lived a man
