Thompson Richard - Withered & Died tab

From: bhutchinson@cix.compulink.co.uk ("Barry Hutchinson")
Subject: TAB: "Withered and Died", by Richard Thompson

A simple fingerstyle arrangement of a very pretty song - sung by Linda 
T., as was, on the album "I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight". R.T. 
has a great knack for writing very authentic-sounding "traditional" songs 
- "How Will I Ever Be Simple Again" being another of my own favourites. I 
like his later style too, but the early stuff still moves me most.

One verse and coda transcribed.

All comments very welcome.
