                             FREIGHT TRAIN - Elizabeth Cotten
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Dave "Red Fox" Nelson
Email: bikeking8@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard ( E A D G B e ), capo on 3rd fret

I saw this performed on some online video and it looked like a good challenge.

Now, if you don't know by now, this is a fingerpicking song and the tempo is
rather fast. This next part is important! The chords shown on this tab do NOT
represent the true sound, merely the chord fingering. I thought this might
make things a little easier for you instead of trying to decipher it with a
capo. Should anyone request the PRMIT's to go along with it, I'd be happy to
oblige; but I left them out for now because what I'm comfortable with may not
work with someone else. Do what feels comfortable for you and make it your own.

This is my first submitted tab, but I've done my best to transcribe it
correctly. Constructive criticism is appreciated, though. Enjoy!
