Elizabeth Cotten - Freight Train tab

This was Originally Tabbed by: Dave "Red Fox" Nelson.  I re-tabbed Dave's work 
without the capo reference.  It was just easier for me to understand it!
All the comments are Dave's and he gets the credit for a very nice tab.
Thanks Dave.

			     FREIGHT TRAIN - Elizabeth Cotten

Tuning: Standard ( E A D G B e ), capo on any fret, the tab is in relation to where you capo.

I saw this performed on some online video and it looked like a good challenge.

Now, if you don't know by now, this is a fingerpicking song and the tempo is
rather fast. This next part is important! The chords shown on this tab do NOT
represent the true sound, merely the chord fingering. I thought this might
make things a little easier for you instead of trying to decipher it with a
capo. Should anyone request the PRMIT's to go along with it, I'd be happy to
oblige; but I left them out for now because what I'm comfortable with may not
work with someone else. Do what feels comfortable for you and make it your own.

This is my first submitted tab, but I've done my best to transcribe it
correctly. Constructive criticism is appreciated, though. Enjoy!
