Deep River Blues   Doc Watson

In article , (WillTurn)

Anyone have the tab to Doc Watson's fingerpicked version of Deep River
Blues?  I've been playing around with the first half for years and can
never seem to get the rest.  Thanks

I love this tune too Bill and have been working on it for a while.  I
start it with these chords E7 and E flat7 and back to E7, up the neck:

-------7---     and the E flat 6        -------6--
-------5---       (if that's it's name)  -------5--
-------7--                                     ------6--
-------6  -                                    -------5--
xxxxxxx                                   xxxxxx--
-------0---                                    --------0--
The progression then goes:
(E7) Give me back (E flat 6) my old boat (E7) I'm gonna sail boys (A) if
she'll float

(E, played at 1st fret) I've got them deep river (B7)blues 

(E7) If my boat (Efl6) sinks with me (E7) I'm going down boys (A)don't you

(E)I've got them (B7)deep river (E) blues
