    I took a Musescore file of it and stripped out piano and added mandolin tab.

    That's fantastic, thank you very much!

    Do you also have the intro for mandolin?

    All the best.

    I took the intro from the piano score, the first 4 measures continue through the sax intro. Also added some of the piano to the mandolin part where there were empty measures. Far from perfect but it may help. There are some obvious slide opportunities I didn't denote, Dm7 to Em7 and the C to D in the first 4 measures.

    Cool. It's a terrific song. We've been playing at Wake the Dead shows lately. We've got a pretty unusual arrangement, with mandolin, octave mandolin, guitar, bass, percussion, and uilleann (Irish) pipes. Sylvia Herold does a killer job singing it. If we ever get around to making a fifth record, that one will probably be on there.
