Here's a beautiful song I worked on years ago. I first heard Allen Shelton play it. Lee Marcus and I worked on this version many years ago when Lee was a teenager and I met him on Jim Pankey's old website. Lee didn't know tab then but he sure could play. When I called Lee at his home, I remember talking to his mother who wouldn't let me speak to Lee until she knew exactly who I was--so funny when I think back...Jack  p.s. we based this arrangement on hearing Allen Shelton play it as I remember...

Here's Joy Bells also...Earl plays this one with "cheaters"laugh

Joy Bells

Beautiful rendition, Jack. Not the way I play it, but I think I like your way better.

Surprise, Gina Furtado also has a tab on the same song. It sounds more like what I do. Both versions are great!
