Does anybody have or know where I can go to find the Tab and Lyrics for this beautiful song? I've looked all over, but it seems all I can come up with is "Here stands the Glass". Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks!

Im not sure where you can get the tab for Teds music, however it is very simple stuff, as you know its the technique that makes it happen!!

I was lucky enough to see Ted play in Leeds back in the late eighties from what I could see Ted had his guitar tuned to 'open E' and then put a capo on at F sharp. He played all his songs (from what I could see) by simply barring the fret with one finger.

In 'I got what I wanted' he plays F sharpe (put the capo here) B and D flat all in open E with capo applied as above.

Try it out and you will soon get the idea.

Hope this helps

Funny to see your enquiry which Google brought when I entered my own search for the song. Its not by Ted Hawkins, but he dignifies this song by his superb performance.

The lyrics are at:

Incidently there are no real tabs for this song. Ted played everything in open tunings and just laid his finger straight across the frets. Almost everything is in Open D or Open G tuning I think.

All the best
