Notes: by Bradbury/Warner. Arrangement by Wayne Conrad. My first tab. While watching TV and goofing around with this tune, I was trying to come up with some way to vary the "bum ditty" to keep the arrangement from sounding repetitive. I stumbled on the idea of playing the "ditty" using two quarter notes instead of two eight notes. The first half of this song is done with the usual "bum ditty," but the second half uses the two-quarter-note "bum ditty" wherever the word "me" occurs in the lyrics. These are all half notes or dotted half-notes in the melody, and a great place for a slower rhythm. I'm sure this is an old idea in clawhammer, but it's new to me. I hope you enjoy it.
