A friend has asked me whether a Scottish version exists of this song (these songs? - I used to think they were different ones). She found a few lines in a book by Hamish Henderson (she doesn't say which one, but could be 'Alias MacAlias') and thinks there possibly is. I've found nothing in the DT. Thanks for your help. - Susanne

Welcome to the Mudcat Susanne,

There have been multiple discussions of this song and its variants. You can click here, or here, or here, or here.

The first one has a posting by Bruce O. that may answer your Scottish version question. There are also some suggested ways to search for variants in the DT that may help you.

Enjoy the song! Impress your friend!

Roger in Baltimore

Thanks, Roger, for providing the links. I found the fragment from Bruce Olson's website, so I hope it'll make my friend happy.
Still, as far as I can make out there is no Scottish version in the DT, in which case no amount of searching techniques would have helped. Also, I'm doing this in the office, not yet having Internet access at home, and pressure from superiors sometimes makes it rather difficult to find enough time for the Mudcat ... I wish I could make it a fulltime job! - Susanne

I think its an Irish Tune. I've heard it on the album Sinanche, by Solas. Im looking for the chords desperately and fruitlessly.

The chords Noreen has pointed out are very good ones - similar to the ones I, myself, use. However, the versions that are more closely aligned with the east side of the Atlantic do them just a little differently, since the tune is just a bit different also. That said, the chords PP&M use will point you in the right direction for discovering the chords for most versions.
