I hear the song part of the track as just this:


Dm /// Dm /// Dm /// Dm /// Dm /// C /// Dm / C / Dm ///

All the way through

Yes, definately sounds more like that, though u can use an Am instead of the C at the end and it still sounds ok.
But yeh, definately does not change key after the first verse!
perhaps thats a different/live version or something?
Cos its not the album version.

This is ok, 3 stars. flix is right about there being no key change though. just thought id put this forward (as a variant on the main chord progression, to mix it up or add emphasis):

Dm F
"Come home with me, little Matty Groves, come home with me tonight.
C Dm C Dm
Come home with me, little Matty Groves, and sleep with me till light."

Uriel's droning-sounding progression goes very nicely with the style of the song as well, mostly I used that interspersed with the one above: when combined with mixing the fingerpicking up that makes the song more interesting to play.

Sorry, that was meant to read:

Dm_________________________________________________________F______
"Come home with me, little Matty Groves, come home with me tonight.
__________________________C_________________Dm_________C_______Dm____
Come home with me, little Matty Groves, and sleep with me till light."

Yes, there are only two chords in the Fairport version, Dm and C. Very easy to work out. I would love to see if anyone was brave enough to tab the whole song out entirely - that would be a lot of work. Richard Thompson's playing on it is extraordinary.

I expect the other versions we've seen are interesting variations on ways to do the song.
