The Scotsman chords by The Irish Rovers

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

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