Notes: This is based on the version on Linda Ronstadt's album of the same name from 2006. As noted in the tab, the banjo can capo at the 2nd fret, allowing the guitar/mandolin to play am and dm for the chords. The tab is missing one of the verses, but it can easily be found on the internet.

Notes: This is my own arrangement in 3/4 time. I was going to submit this for one of the banjo challenges, but a house move and resultant disruptions got in the way. For extra credit what major motion picture, shot in New England, features this song?
