Colleen Malone: Larry Sparks Album: Special Delivery Capo 3rd Fret Please Note: The intro follows the pattern of the first two lines, except the last two chords are reversed in the second line. I have put in how it would be with words. If you have the recording you will hear it. This is a great bluegrass song where Larry Sparks flat-picks the first two lines of the instrumental. He has a unique style that really makes the acoustic guitar sound as it should, without fancy electronic adjustments. If you can't find this recording, contact me at Gmwns@aol.com and I'll be glad to send you the MP3. Intro: (Keep in mind the words are just to set the pattern.
