I was able to restore my tab of Little Martha from backup tapes
(thank goodness for backups !).  Here it is again.

                        Little Martha
                     by: Duanne Allman

  Playing notes:

  This instrumental is played in open A chord diagramE MajorE tuning (A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramBB A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramG#G# A chord diagramBB A chord diagramE MajorE).
  Rather than tuning the 3rd, 4th and 5th strings up (which can
  be really stressful on the neck), you can tune down to open A chord diagramD MajorD
  (A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramF#F# A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramD MajorD) and capo at the second fret.

  The thumb keeps time with a monotonic bass line while the
  fingers play the melody.  The structure of the tune is:

      1 - Intro
      2 - Part 1 ending with [1.]
      3 - Repeat Part 1 ending with [2.]
      4 - Part 2
      5 - Repeat Part 1 up until [To Coda]
      6 - Coda

Chords used:  numbers in grid indicate frets
              numbers in parentheses are suggested fingerings (1=index,2=middle,etc)
