"Captain Wedderburn" (Trad.\Arr. GBS)
   From "Turn" (1999)

 
 This one poses a few questions, guitaristically as well as lyrically.
 The mid-song modulation up a step being an issue. while it is possible
 and easy enough to play the first bit in C then switch to D, it seems 
 more likely the capos were moved up via an edit.
 the live version with Sarah Harmer on "Road Rage" would
 seem to suggest as much, being in D for its entirety
 
 Use a capo on the fifth fret (ignoring modulation-otherwise third fret 
 for first half) and standard fingerpicking.


 Intro: C F/C |C' Fmaj7| C5 F/C |C  Csus2 C| x2

    C               Csus4 C       F            G   Gsus4  G
 A Nobleman's fair daughter came down a narrow lane
      C                Csus4  C       F      G       C
 And met with Captain Wedderburn the keeper of the game
  C              Csus4  C           F            G  Gsus4 G
 Now, my pretty fair miss, if it wasn't for the law
       C              Csus4      C    F            G           C
 then you and I in a bed might lie, roll me over next to the wall,
   F            G           C
 Roll me over next to the wall

 Intro X1

 Now, my dear good man she said, do not be perplexed
 before that you might bed with me you must answer questions six
 six questions you must answer me, I will ask them all
 then you and I in a bed might lie, roll me over next to the wall,
 ah-roll me over next to the wall

 Intro X2

 What is rounder than a ring, and higher than the trees?
 what is worse than a woman's curse and what is deeper than the sea?
 Which bird sings first, which one best, where does the dew first fall?,
 then you and I in a bed might lie, roll me over next to the wall
 ah-roll me over next to the wall

 Intro X2 

 Break: Am F Am F Am F C Am F C | Intro x1

 the earth is rounder than a ring, and heaven is higher than the trees,
 the devil is worse than a woman's curse and hell is deeper than the sea
 the lark sings first, the thrush sings best, the earth is where
 the dew falls first, and you and I in a bed must lie,
 ah-roll me over next to the wall, ah-roll me over next to the wall
 
 Intro X2

 He takes her by her lily-white hand, Leads her down the hall,
 he takes her by her slender waist for fear that she might fall
 he lays her on a bed of down without a doubt at all, now
 he and she lie in one bed, ah-roll me over next to the wall
 she and he lie in one bed, ah-roll me over next to the wall
 roll me over next to the wall, roll me over next to the wall

 Intro X2, End on D
