I've seen many different tabs and chords for this song on the website. Got to say that the other tab is not
right and neither are the 1st and 2nd chords versions. So only the Vers3 of this song's chords isaccurate
(thank you flatwound) 
However, the guitar tab is still missing.
Here is an arrangement for standard tuning on a standard 6 string guitar. im sad to say i cant find nor tell
whats the actual tuning of leadbelly, as he plays a 12 string guitar with a reaaaally bass sound on the
6th string (on this song we gets to play a lower A on the E string)
