G'day Joe Offer,

I'm not sure whether the fact that nobody wants to transcribe this song should appal me ... or redeem my poor opinion of general Mudcat taste ... Anyway, a band I played with in the '70s (Rouseabouts) did this on a number off occasions when i was not able the get away ... and our tune has been burned into my grey cells. I also checked John Mehlberg's recording of Archie Tawney -the only one of 3 that successfully downloaded - and that seems to be ... more or less ... the tune I remember.

Here is the ABC format of the tune (in C - roughly where I would sing it):

ABC format:


X:1

T:

M:2/4

Q:1/4=120

K:C

G6G2|G4EE3|E4DC3|E8|-E6G2|G4EE3|E4DC3|A4D4|

-D6G2|G4EE3|E4DC3|F8|A6A2|G4GG3|F4ED3|D4C4|

-C3||



I'll send the MIDI file to MMario.

Enjoy ... ?

Regards,

Bob
