Well a Scotsman clad in kilt left a bar one evening fair
C C F F C C G G
And one could tell by how he walked that he'd drunk more than his share
F F C C F F G G
He fumbled round until he could no longer keep his feet
C C G G C C F F G G C C
Then he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street
F F C C G G
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
C C G G C C F F G G C C
He stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street
C C F F G G C C
About that time two young and lovely girls just happened by
C C F F C C G G
And one says to the other with a twinkle in her eye
F F C C F F G G
See young sleeping Scotsman so strong and handsome built
C C G G C C F F G G C C
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt
F F C C G G
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
C C G G C C F F G G C C
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt
C C F F G G C C
They crept up on that sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be
C C F F C C G G
Lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see
F F C C F F G G
And there behold, for them to view, beneath his Scottish skirt
C C G G C C F F G G C C
Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth
F F C C G G
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
C C G G C C F F G G C C
Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth
C C F F G G C C
They marveled for a moment, then one said we must be gone
C C F F C C G G
Let's leave a present for our friend, before we move along
F F C C F F G G
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon, tied into a bow
C C G G C C F F G G C C
Around the bonnie star the Scots kilt did lift and show
F F C C G G
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
C C G G C C F F G G C C
Around the bonnie star the Scots kilt did lift and show
C C F F G G C C
Now the Scotsman woke to nature's call and stumbled toward the trees
C C F F C C G G
Behind a bush, he lifts his kilt and gawks at what he sees
F F C C F F G G
And in a startled voice he says to what's before his eyes
C C G G C C F F G G C C
O lad I don't know where you been but I see you won first prize
F F C C G G
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
C C G G C C F F G G C C
O lad I don't know where you been but I see you won first prize
