Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Braw Sailin' On The Sea
Here's (roughly) how Kris Drever does it:

D                        A
There came a letter late yestreen
D                        A
The ship maun sail the morn
Bm      G       F#m    G
Alas cried the bonny lass
D         A      G
That ever I was born

CHORUS
D                            A
And it's braw sailing on the sea
D                         A
When wind and weather's fair
Bm             G    F#m       G
It's better tae be in my love's arms
D    A          G
Oh gin I were there
