This is one for for you stage 2ers out there...

Now I'm pertty certain that the song is in open G (DGDGBD) and mostly built around this pattern x05030 x02010 x04030...

Can anyone get more specific with chord structures than this?

I learned this one from a radio show tape, and never knew who wrote it. Here are lyrics anyway. I hope this is what you are after. As I recall, the chord structure is pretty straightforward. Sorry about lack of line breaks, spelling, etc. but my turn on the computer is just about over.

JENNY BRYCE (James Keelaghan)

This morning I was lost in thought as up the hill I wandered,
And sitting there to greet the dawn upon my life I pondered.
I glanced across the shaded grove where often I had been
With sweet Jenny Bryce, Jack the rover's daughter. (2x)

Some said they were of tinker stock, baptized by flowing water.
Old Jack, he was disposed to roam, and so his only daughter.
And as a lad of seventeen, I left my parents' home
With Jenny Bryce, Jack the rover's daughter.

From wooded glen to heathered moor with Jenny I went roaming.
Her voice so sweet made soft the road from daylight 'til night's closing.
And when at night I laid to rest, 'twas in my true love's arms,
With Jenny Bryce, Jack the rover's daughter.

One day says she, "Oh Willie, I weary of the road."
So a fine small house I built for her down in yon shady grove.
And then with Jenny by my side, I led a settled life
With Sweet Jenny as companion and as wife.

And one day says she, "Oh Willie, a child for us I bear."
And all that winter long I worked and helped her to prepare.
But none but God could help her with a birth such as she saw.
She was Jenny Bryce, she bore for us a daughter.

Six tortured hours she lingered and never once complained.
And all there was to do for her, I did to ease the pain.
And when morning came, I formed a cross and carved in it her name.
I carved "Jenny Bryce, Jack the rover's daughter."

This morn as I was lost in thought, 'twas down the hill I ambled,
And back along the shaded stream where with my love I rambled,
To greet a child of seven years that bears her mother's name.
She's sweet Jenny Bryce, Jenny Bryce's daughter.

Sweetie, I'm assuming that if you title the post as you did that you also want lyrics.

I've been looking for some clues to the chords of James Keelaghan's Jenny Brice and found this thread at Mudcat. Clinton Hammond's guess that its open G (DGDGBD) seemed a good starting point. So I retuned my Martin and played around for a while and came up with what I think might be the intro (not the finger picked part, but the fast rhythm strum with what sounds like hammer-ons and pull-offs.)

So try this sequence

x05035, x04035, x02010, x04030

and see if its somewhere there for you.

Maybe if we put our heads together we'll get a tab for this great tune.

Tabs or diagram would be great for us less talented folk who enjoy playing these great songs just for fun. My ear is only so good at picking out the details, especially in open tuning. I am getting there, but I wouldn't want to play this one in a fake fashion, it just sounds to good by Garnet and James!!!
If anyone can post it would be great
