I'm a guitar player, so here's the main melody of this song transcribed for 
guitar. This isn't the complete song, but it's a good start. I'm working on finishing it...

I've never played a mandolin, but it sounds like it's an octave higher than the 
guitar. If that's the case, and if you tune 

it the same as a guitar, here's how the song could be played:

e----------------------------------------------------------------
b-----------------------------------------------3^5-----3--------
g--0-0-0----0-----0-2-4^0---5^0---2---0^2---0-2-----2-----2---0--
d---------4---2-4---------0-----0---------4-----------4-----4----

Or you could put a capo on the 12th fret of a guitar and play it that way, it's 
up to you.

If some mandolin/guitar player out there would like to translate this guitar tab
into mandolin, please feel free.

I'm pretty confident the notes are accurate, but you might to want to change 
the fingerings in order to play it faster. I've given you a few different ways 
to play the theme in here, pick which ever you find easiest. This one sure goes 

Good Luck!
