[Scottish Song]

Intro: C-G-C-G-C-G-C-G-G

From (F)Forfar the Dean (C)Water drains the (F)Vale of Strath(C)more,
Doon the (F)lazy loopin (C)Isla to the (Am)Tay by Meik(G)lour.
Now the (C)Isla's early (F)roa(C)min' is in (Am)Highland no' in (G)Lowland,
Where the (C)Ardle (F)and (C)Shee twine in Ericht's (G)compa(C)ny.

Chorus
For the (C)Lochs (Am)o' the (C)Tay
Are the (Dm)jewels in the (C)crown of a (Am)Scone coro(G)nation.-C-G
And the (C)streams o' the (F)Shire
Course the (C)county that's (G)dearest tae (C)me. G-C-G

Now the (F)Garry disnae (C)tarry in a (F)melt-swollen (C)spring,
With the (F)Bruar, Tilt and E(C)rochty leachin' (Am)Atholl's high (G)grun'.
From the (C)moors o' (F)lonely (C)Rannoch trickles (Am)peat fae many (G)dark loch,
Through the (C)Tummel's (F)cleft (C)braes by the Northern (G)High(C)ways.

Chorus
Doon the (F)Dochart and the (C)Lochy spillin' (F)doon tae Loch (C)Tay,
Killin tae (F)Kenmore tae Aber(C)feldy just a (Am)raft race a(G)way.
Up the (C)pools o' high (F)Breadal(C)bane slip the (Am)sleek Lyon (G)salmon,
As they (C)funnel (F)their (C)way atween Schiehallion (G)and (C)Tay.
Chorus

As the (F)Bran pours by Loch (C)Freuchie doon the (F)braes tae Dun(C)keld,
So the (F)Almond hurries (C)Sconeward, aye the (Am)Tay's eldest (G)child.
But the (C)Earn will run her (F)own (C)way, giving (Am)way to Tay (G)only,
Ere she (C)flows (F)tae the (C)tide, wi the Farg on (G)her (C)side.
Chorus twice
