I think the chords for All Night Long on the Live album should be like this:

(D) I'm going to the (G) depot
To call all aboard (D)
If the train ain't (A) there
It's somewhere on the (D) road

All night long (G)
All night long (D)
All night long (A)
All night long (D)

Pick and fiddle away.

And for you fiddlers out there, I believe Ketch is tuned to A-D-A-E, an old-timey D-tuning. I'm afraid this one's a bit above my skill level but I'm trying!

There were a few lyrical errors in the post in the old lyric/chord archive. I do believe banjogeek is correct with the key of D.


ALL NIGHT LONG

I'm goin' to the depot
To crawl aboard
If the train ain't here
I'm goin' down that road
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long

Well if I had minded
What mama said
I could a-been sleepin'
In mama's bed
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long

Well if I live
And don't get killed
Gonna make my home
In Louisville
In Louisville
In Louisville
I'll make my home
In Louisville
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long

I ain't got no woman
I ain't got no kin
I ain't got nobody
To be bothered with
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long

All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
(6x to end)

While I'd earlier thought that this was an Earl Johnson cover, searching for an old fiddle tune by the name of "Richmond Blues" has led me to believe that the OCMS version derives from Burnett & Rutherford's 1928 version.

If I did an Old Crow top ten, this would surely be on there. Love it.

Hmm. They work for me. Don't know why they wouldn't. They're just fiddle tabs.

So messing around for a few minutes, I found out "Code" uses fixed-width spacing.
