Sorry I'm late with this.

Here's a tab for Weave & Way that I learned from Norman Blake's first album, Home In Sulpher Springs. Norman and Tut Taylor play a great guitar/dobro duet on this tune. Reg Buck and I used to play it as a mandolin medley duet with Red Haired Boy. I sent it in to Dick Kimmel's Thumpin' column in BNL about thirty years ago I've probably changed it a bit since then.

I found a video on Youtube of a group called Red Pajamas playing it. I can't listen to it myself because I'm at the library, but I figure it must be the same tune

Here's a guitar tab by Steve Kaufman:

I hope this is what you're after.

I was just told that the Red Pajamas do a vocal on this tune. I know that Michelle Shocked wrote words to this tune and recorded them on her Arkansas Traveller record and I think Norman did the guitar break.
Norman Blake says in his Home In Sulpher Springs liner notes,"...probably an old Scotch (sic) tune".

Good call Jim. I've always loved this tune, I first heard it on the Norman Blake album around 30 years ago.
