This is my first post.  I transcribe for myself quite frequently (solo or 
duo acoustic arrangements), but don't usually put it down on paper (or 
computer).  I decided that it was time to share!  Here's a tune that was 
re-done by 10,000 Maniacs -  further evidence of it's _timelessness_, in my 
opinion.


* = fretted note        play all strings marked "o", mute (or don't 
@ = add for 4th                play) strings marked "x"
% = add for 2nd
                                    
E oooooo  A. oooooo  A.. xooooo  B. xooooo  B.. oooooo  C#m xooooo

Performance Notes:

        I play this with many open strings except in the REFRAIN, which is 
really straight bar chords.  The F#m in the chorus is probably a straight 
F#m bar chord - Mike Mills plays the low F# on bass.  BUT, I prefer to play 
the following F#m7add4 chord (because it "jangles" and sounds fuller than 
the bar chord):
                        F#m7+4 xooooo
                               ------
