Tabbed by Jamie Phillips (jamiephillips22@hotmail.com)

Artist: Bert Jansch
Track title: The Lily of the West
Album: Live at the 12 bar, Downunder - Live in Australia
Tuning: EADGBE
Capo: 1st fret

I tabbed this from the Live at the 12 Bar album but it's basically the same on Downunder
except that version has bass. This is straightforward to play. Bert shows slight variation
from verse to verse and there is also an instrumental break which is virtually the same
as the verse. It's nearly impossible to tell exactly how he picks on a few bars where the
vocals drown out the guitar so feel free to experiment - I used a mixture of the verse
and instrumental to figure it out. It's a great traditional song this one.

Rhythm: 4/4
