Looking for a tab for Osborne Bros. Me and My Old Banjo, preferably with lyrics.
Thanks in advance.

Here's the lyrics and chords. I've never heard the song, but if you have the song on video/tape/CD you can sing and chord along with it and maybe figure out a simple melody on the banjo. Or maybe someone else has a tab. I don't do tab any more.

Me and My Old Banjo
By Sonny Osborne


G C G
Well the sun came up, bright and clear
D7
I headed for the fishin’ hole.
G C
Just in case the fish don’t bite,
G D7 G
I brought along my old banjo.

Bluegrass playin’ on the radio
I sure do love that sound.
I come here to fish, but I changed my mind
Too much movin’ around

(Chorus)
The sun’s so hot and I’m so tired
I just can’t do no more
Under the shade of my old oak tree
Me and my old banjo

(Instrumental break)

I could try my hand at Soldier’s Joy,
or maybe Cripple Creek.
But listenin’ to Earl’s Breakdown,
that makes my fingers weak.

(Chorus)
The sun’s so hot and I’m so tired
I just can’t do no more
Under the shade of my old oak tree
Me and my old banjo

(Instrumental break)

Now the sun’s a-goin’ down., It’s getting’ dark
I guess I’d better go.
But we’ll come back to the ol’ oak tree
Me and my old banjo

(Chorus)
The sun’s so hot and I’m so tired
I just can’t do no more
Under the shade of my old oak tree
Me and my old banjo
Me and my old banjo
Me and my old banjo

Neat tune, Jack. Strange that I've never heard it before. I like it and will probably learn to pick and sing it.
