Broadford Bazaar guitar tab

Broadford Bazaar 
Ian Anderson 
(transcription: Paul Tarvydas, tarvydas@tsctrl.guild.org) 

Notes: 

- Capo 7th fret 
- tablature 0 is 7th fret 
- chords w/o parentheses are the "normal" guitar chord positions 
  played relative to the capo (i.e. most convenient for guitarists) 
- chords inside parentheses are the actual chords 
- entirely flatpicked 
- most chords are "washboard" strummed (just slowly enough that 
  distinct notes are heard)

(Em)        (D)      (Bm)               (A) 
 Dirty white caravans down narrow roads, sailing.

(Em)        (D)      (Bm)         (A) 
 Vivas, Cortinas, weaving in their wake.

     (Em)           (D)             (G) 
 With hot, red-faced drivers, horns, flattened fists,

 wailing,

   Putting trust in blind corners as  they overtake. 

           G        D 
 And it's "All come willing now, 
 C       G 
 Spend a shilling now, 
 G            C            Em        D 
 Stack up the back of your new motor-car." 
         G         C            G           Em 
 There's home-dyed woolens, and wee plaster Cullins. 
     C          D         E      Esus4 E 
 The day of the Broadford Bazaar. 
  
 Am         G         Em           D        Dsus2 D D5 D 
 Out of the north, no oil-rigs are drifting. 
     Am           G        Em          D   Dsus2 D D5 D 
 And jobs for the many are down to the few. 
 Am           G              C        D 
 Blue-bottled choppers, they visit no longer. 
      G            G/F                C            D 
 Like flies to the jampots, they were just passing through. 
           G        D 
 And it's "All come willing now, 
 C       G 
 Spend a shilling now, 
 G            C            Em        D 
 Stack up the back of your new motor-car" 
                  G           C 
 Where once stood oil-rigs so phallic 
              G              Em 
 There's only swear-words in Gaelic 
    C          D         E      Esus4  E 
 To say at the Broadford bazaar. 
  

 Am           G           Em           D       Dsus2 D D5 D 
 All kinds of people come down for the opening. 
 Am           G              Em       D      Dsus2 D D5 D 
 Crofters and cotters, white-settlers galore. 
     Am        G                C                D 
 And up on the hill, there's an old sheep that's dying, 
            G             G/F         C         D 
 But it had two new lambs born just a fortnight before. 

           G        D 
 And it's "All come willing now, 
 C       G 
 Spend a shilling now, 
 G            C            Em        D 
 Stack up the back of your new motor-car." 
                                 G                C 
 They'll take pounds, francs and dollars from the well-heeled, 
     G               Em 
 And stamps from the Green Shield. 
     C          D           E    Esus4 E 
 The day of the Broadford Bazaar.
