D A D F# A D
Song: Worried Mary
Band: Old Crow Medicine Show
Album: Greetings from WAWA

This song is of course on the banjo but there wasn't a choice for it.
It is on a classic 5-string banjo in Open D tuning. To get there from the standard Open 
G tuning do this:

D
B - down a whole step to A
G - down half a step to F#
D
G - down half a step to F#

Resulting in:

D
A
F#
D
F#

Anyways, here goes. Clawhammer style!

D |-0~~~-|
A |-0~~~-|
F#|-0~~~-|
D |-0~~~-|
F#|-0~~~-|

Then there's basically 2 parts to this song:
