The Elevator

A tune by Jonny Hardie of the Old Blind Dogs, which complements their stellar rendition of "Tramps and Hawkers". https://thesession.org/tunes/7091
This transcription is from "Play Live", which should be linked in recordings.
The first part, in 9/8, is used as a bridge between chorus and verse, and also bookends the tune proper. I’ve written out "C" in full because of some variations in the repeat.
Tune form: A-B-C-B-C-A
