Guitar tabs with lyrics

Here's another nice old-time fiddle tune, "The Growling Old Man and Old Woman,"
in an arrangement adapted from a hammered dulcimer arrangement. Some people
play the part I have labeled as Part A chord diagramBB first.

Fiddlers usually play this in A, so capo at the second fret.

|-3-| is a triplet. (D/F) means "D or F." -1p0- means pull off from 1 to 0.
-3/4- means slide from 3 to 4.
