Notes: As played by Bobby Thompson in Bill Monroe's recording, capoed up to A. One could quibble, I suppose, with my interpretation of the B part beginning in measure 18, where I show the notes as played on a single string (third string second fret to third string open) as opposed to melodic style (fourth string seventh fret to third string open) to achieve the same sequence of notes. I don't know for sure which way Bobby Thompson played it, but I find the single-string approach to be easier to play.
