Marion in Cornwall Chords Req: The Roving Dies Hard (Battlefield Band (13) RE: Chord Req: Needing Chords for The Rovin dies hard 22 Aug 05

Hi Sebastian,
There's an email on its way to you with a picture of the music attached. At the back of the book there is this comment about the song.

"THE ROVIN' DIES HARD - Are there more Scots outside Scotland than in it? Each wave of emigration in our country's history seems to wash home the seeds of the next one. Gernerations of this process have bred a kind of Scot who is driven to roam, a compulsive traveller whose prsonality becomes more identifiably Scottish the further it gets from home. Brian (McNeil) is fascinated by the panorama of Scotland's history and in this song which looks across three centuries of wanderers he wonders whether we, the current generation of Scotland's musicians, are the latest group to follow the lead. (Different verses in F, Bb and G)"

Let me know if there's a problem
All the best
