Does anyone have tabs for the songs: "Nobody's Fault But Mine", and "One Kind Favor" from Birth of the Dead? My father has just taken up the guitar along with my sister and now that they've gotten the basics down the wanted to learn some songs. I would have tabbed them put myself but I just can't listen to music and pick out chords and melodys and stuff. I guess I just don't have an ear for music. Thanks in advance. P.S. Also I do have the tabs for "Early Morning Rain" from Birth of the Dead if anyone is interested.

Got this online from the original version which is similar to how Bromberg does it. Led Zeps version is also available online.

I've only heard the Dead play this as a jam between tunes. Did they ever actually sing it?
I've never heard zepplin do it.

I would also add Sister Rosetta Tharpe to the list. She adds in a C# to the walk down . . .
