I started playing sad Richard Thompson songs for the 82nd Season of the Ukulele a week ago, and couldn't stop. I did another one this week, and still had this one that I needed to get out of my system.

Shady Wilbury asked me for the chords yesterday. I didn't have them in electronic format then, but I tabbed out a couple of bits and got the chords for the rest.

Thanks, Jon. I'm working on an early REM one you might like.
