Here is a song I heard Jeff Warner do in concert here in Connecticut and have been unable to get it out of my head.As they said in Elizabethan times its a maggot (Hard to get out of your head after hearing it ) .This piece has a wonderful melody and a twister of a tuning . It's in Sawmill tuning (-1) but the Fifth string is also dropped a note . If you were in G its down at F but being lower its tuned to the first string third fret . I am playing my wonderful 1880's Dobson that David Oakes refurbished for me .


I'm a long time travelin' here below, I'm a long time travelin' away from my home. I'm a long time travelin' here below, Gonna lay this body down.

1. When I can see my title's clear, to my mansions in the sky. I'll bid farewell to every fear, And I'll wipe my weepin' eye.

2. Let others seek a place below, where flames devour and forever roam. I'll seek a home above the sky, Where I'll always live, I'll never die.

3. There I shall bath my weary soul, in seas of heavenly rest. And not a wave of trouble roll, across my peaceful breast.
