The Scotsman chords by The Irish Rovers

D D G G A A D D
Well Scotsman clad in kilt left the bar one evening fair
D D G G D D A A
One could tell by how he walked, that he'd drunk more than his share.
G G D D G G A A
He stumbled on until he could no longer keep his feet,
D D G G A A D D
Then he staggered off into the grass to sleep beside the street.


[Chorus]

G G D D A A
Ring ding diddle iddle I dee oh, ring di diddle I Oh
D D G G A A D D
He staggered off into the grass to sleep beside the street.


[Verse]

D D G G A A D D
Later on two young and lovely girls just happened by,
D D G G D D A A
One says to the other with a twinkle in her eye.
G G D D G G A A
See yon sleeping Scotsman, so strong and handsome built,
D D G G A A D D
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt.


[Chorus]

G G D D A A
Ring ding diddle iddle I dee oh, ring di diddle I Oh
D D G G A A D D
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt.


[Verse]

D D G G A A D D
They crept up to that sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be,
D D G G D D A A
Lifted up his kilt above the waist so they could see.
G G D D G G A A
And there behold for them to view beneath his Scottish skirt,
D D G G A A D D
Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth.


[Chorus]

G G D D A A
Ring ding diddle iddle I dee oh, ring di diddle I Oh
D D G G A A D D
Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth.


[Verse]

D D G G A A D D
They marveled for a moment then one said we'd best be gone,
D D G G D D A A
Let's leave a present for our friend before we move along.
G G D D G G A A
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon, tied into a bow,
D D G G A A D D
Around the bonnie star of the Scots kilt lifting show.


[Chorus]

G G D D A A
Ring ding diddle iddle I dee oh, ring di diddle I Oh
D D G G A A D D
Around the bonnie star of the Scots kilt lifting show.


[Verse]

D D G G A A D D
The Scotsman woke to nature's call and stumbled towards a tree,
D D G G D D A A
Behind a bush he lifts his kilt and gawks at what he sees.
G G D D G G A A
Then in a startled voice he says to what's before his eyes,
D D G G A A D D
My friend I dunno where you've been but I see you've won first prize.


[Chorus]

G G D D A A
Ring ding diddle iddle I dee oh, ring di diddle I Oh
D D G G A A D D
My friend I dunno where you've been but I see you've won first prize.
