Bert Jansch - In The Bleak Midwinter tab

Tabbed by Jamie Phillips (jamiephillips22@hotmail.com)

Artist: Bert Jansch
Track title: In The Bleak Midwinter
Album: The River Sessions
Tuning: DADGBE (drop D)
Capo: 2nd Fret

This was the one song I used to love singing at school before Christmas as a kid, and I'm 
chuffed to find Bert singing it too. As ever, the guitar part goes beautifully with the song
and the good news is this one's really easy to play. I've tabbed the intro, the first verse
and the break before the second verse (which contains nothing different). This is a really
beautiful tune! Enjoy :o)
