Martin Simpson - Go Down Moses Text Guitar Tab

Learn the song with the online tablature player
An old American gospel tune from 'A Closer Walk With Thee', where Simpson
segues into this from 'O Jerusalem' (which I have also transcribed -
should be available at OLGA, otherwise feel free to mail me and I'll let
you have a copy). They do make a nice pairing.

It's a fairly straightforward piece, but take care not to let any open
strings other than the Ds ring during the slides in measures 5, 9 and 17.
