Here's another Cockburn tune for y'all......

Happy Good Morning Blues - Bruce Cockburn
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

>From  the album "High Winds White Sky" 1971.
Transcribed and tabbed by Jared White (whitej@lincoln.ac.nz)
                       and John Kean (keanj@agresearch.cri.nz)

Tuning: Standard (Cockburn tunes all strings down one semitone)
Timing: 4/4 with the odd tricky bit...
Notes : This tune needs swing!
        Measures 41 & 42 are real finger-busters.  If anyone has
        other suggestions, please Email us. It's fairly easy to
        simplify if necessary.
        Bracketed notes are optional.  Feedback appreciated.  Enjoy!!

Happy Good Morning Blues
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Good day to you, fat balloon man
May you always have air
You sing a song everybody can believe

Good day to you, uncle tom cat
Out to drink the whole world
You carry a tune for nobody but yourself

Good day to you, herr policeman
May your boots always fit
Someday you'll find a song you can believe

Good morning good people
The sun is long sailing
The only clouds you see
Are carried within-
Soon they'll be blown all away
Wind gonna rise and blow those clouds away
Wind gonna rise and blow your blues away
Your sun gonna shine on my back door someday

Loved this whole album and never thought I'd have the chance to learn it. Just a wonderful pastime for me. I really enjoy learning instrumental guitar and this is my only venue for now.
