Em                           Am
way down yonder, down in the meadow 
F                  Am
lies a poor little child 
Em                                         Am
the bees and the flies are pickin' out its eyes 
F                                    Em
the poor little child crying for its mother 
                   Am
oh, crying for its mother 
hush-a-bye, don't you cry 
go to sleep you little baby 
when you wake, you shall have cake 
and all the pretty little horses 
blacks and bays, dapple and greys 
coach and six white horses 
blacks and bays, dapple and greys 
all the pretty little horses 
blacks and bays, dapple and greys 
all the pretty little horses.

I tried submitting this as a tab before, but it was declined, so I think I should have submitted it as a correction. It suggests a number of fairly big changes. A quick intro to explain the chords, and then my suggested corrections.

"Am and Am9 chords are played as xx555 and xx557. Cm and Cm9 are played as xx888 and xx8810. G#dim7 is played like G#dim, but with a diminished seventh, so 456464. G#dim7 is the best description I can come up with. Feel free to correct... Since it is a Southwest-style tune, most slow-moving chords sound best if the bass note is played first, and the rest of the chord is finger-picked upward and back downward."

A Section, Line 9: [/ch]Em[/ch] should be [ch]Am[/ch]

Transition from A section to B section:
[ch]F[/ch] - [ch]Em[/ch] [ch]F[/ch] - [ch]G[/ch] [ch]G#dim7[/ch]

Repeat x2:
-[ch]Am[/ch] [ch]Am9[/ch] [ch]Am[/ch] [ch]Am9[/ch] [ch]Am[/ch]
- [ch]Cm[/ch] [ch]Cm9[/ch] [ch]Cm[/ch] [ch]Cm9[/ch]
- [ch]Am[/ch] [ch]Am9[/ch] [ch]Am[/ch] [ch]Am9[/ch] [ch]Am[/ch]

B Section:
[ch]Dm[/ch] [ch]Am[/ch]
way down yonder, down in the meadow
[ch]Bb[/ch] [ch]Am[/ch]
lies a poor little child
[ch]Dm[/ch] [ch]Am[/ch]
the bees and the flies are pickin' out its eyes
[ch]Bb[/ch] [ch]Am[/ch] [ch]E[/ch]
the poor little child crying for its mother
[ch]Am[/ch]
oh, crying for its mother

Hope this helps! -Jonathan
