That's copyright protected. You can probably find guitar chords and work out your own arrangement.

We probably won't make a copyrighted song available in a tablature file here on ED, but there may be some others out there who pay the fee to sell the tab. Ron Zuckerman has dabbled in this on a few tunes and Tull Glazener has arranged tablature for copyrighted tunes also (just two people of whom I am aware). The sales process each of these people use for selling copyrighted material manages the payments for royalties to the owner of the tunes.

In a different path, if you were planning to sing this song, the chords are very simple and the melody almost follows the chords for a dulcimer tuned CGG (you might be able to pick the melody just playing the chords). The url below is for a site that has the lyrics and the chords.


If you want to play it in a D tuning, just substitute C with a D, G7 with an A or A7, and F with a G. Depending on your dulcimer tuning (DAA or DAD), you can experiment with the chord forms to find the sound you like the best. I tried a few bars with DAA tuning and the 302 for a D, 403 for an A or A7, and 313 for a G made some nice chords for accompaniment.
