Mark -
I have the chords for the PPM arrangement set up in a fairly bombproof text format with .pdf back up. Which do you want?

I am not sure the melody is the same or even similar to the Hammond song you seek. No minor chords in the PPM version - mostly progressions of G G6 G7 interpolated in various ways.

Here is the skinny:

Note that this is in half time and that ALL the chord changes within the measure fall on the midddle beat.


(Arrangement by Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey & Mary Travers 1964)

             |G* G7   |G6          G7         |G    G7   |

G6 G7       |G   G7    |G6             G7      |G    G7 |
    There's |one   kind |favour I'll ask of you |___      |

G6 G7       |G   G7    |G6    G7       |G7 C      |Eb       |

This might indicate an alternate open tuning on the 2nd string. But one would have to work out the fingering patterns for the C, D and Eb chords - probably not a big problem.
