Default Lord Franklin in DADGAD Tab Request

I am wondering does anyone have a nice DADGAD tab for this song, fingerpicked or fingerstyle solo? I have worked out some of my own ideas, and would like to expand on them.

I would be happy to buy at a fair price. Thanks in advance.

Sorry, I can't help with the tab, but I wanted to say that I love the song! I play it in drop-D. First heard it on Pentangle's Cruel Sister album many years ago.

Renbourn plays it in EADGBE, in E major, and I think it he did it the same in the Pentangle version, just tuned down a half-step.

A quick google for "Lord Franklin DADGAD" brought up these two:

Great song alright. Check out Liam.Clancy's version. It's very nicely done.

I really like the sense of tonal ambiguity John Renbourn created in his accompaniment by omitting the 3rd in chords from an otherwise conventional progression, perhaps Renbourn was thinking about the sailors dream state but anyone who knows real winter white outs knows the ambiguous reality of water that behaves hopefully like rock as you travel on it and the light grey mist in front of you that might be a wall of snow or might just be empty space.
