Candy man been here and gone
Candy man been here and gone
Candy man, salty dog
If you can't be my Candy man you can't be my salty dog

Candy man, candy man
Candy man, fattin hog
Candy man, Santa Claus
If you can't be my candy man, can't be my fattin hog

Candy man, candy man 
Candy man, been here and gone
Candy man, salty dog
I wish I was in New Orleans, sitting on the candy stand

Run get the pitcher, get the baby some beer (6X)
I'd give anything in this god almighty world
To get my Candy man home 

Candy man, salty dog
Candy man, fattin hog
Candy man, salty dog
If you can't be my Candy man
You can't be my man at all

Awesome. Simple but elegant. Makes me want to practice from 8 to 9.

I appreciate your fine work transcribing, however you've made one significant mistake:

He's actually playing a reverse picking pattern, the thumb alternates high to low. This is something Rev. Gary and old style / ragtime pickers would do back in the day. It's a pretty neat variation, but often overlooked.

The first note in your tab is actually the "4" - so your tab just needs to shift over to the left one beat.

All your notes are otherwise correct. Great work!

I mean to say the first 12 bars.

Rev. Gary begins playing the song on the 4. Though it sounds like the 1! And it doesn't really make a difference until he starts singing.

Splitting hairs here. But anyway.

Great work.
