This is a very old traditional folk song, "Banks of the Ohio". It was the first arrangement that I made from scratch, as I did not have any tablature for it.

There is a major Doc Watson influence in this arrangement, primarily from his 'On Stage' recording. On that record, Merle Watson did the fingerpicking and Doc added some harmony.

This song, like my other MP3, "Freight Train", is played in C position with the capo at the 4rd fret, and just uses C, G7 and F. The solo is close to the melody.
