I lost my Ed Trickett, "The Telling Takes Me Home" tape, which has a great version of this song. The tune is just vaguely bouncing around some spent neurons in my old brain. I plan to introduce this song at our song swap workshop this Sat. This month's topic is Songs of the Sea. Please, anyone, send me the chords. I'll catch the tune once I see the chords.

put marnie in the blue search box above and then click on the "click here to play" at the bottom of the song. If your browser is set up right (mine isn't), it will play the tune for you. The tune is the same as the hymn Only Remembered.

'Marnie' was on an LP (1970s?) with many fine Scottish singers- can't recall the name but the Thurso group 'MIRK' sang it on that LP

The chord request was made 17 years ago.

The DT has two versions of the melody, one in 3/4 time and one in 4/4. Neither one seems quite right.

Margie Sinclair was the female Mirk singer-her husband iain sang, played and composed. I've forgotten the name of other(s) in group - need to trawl through me record collection; a guy who played a small pedal organ.
I think Jean Redpath would have recorded it too - she was a great fan (and friend I believe) of Jean Ritchie. Jean Redpath taught us Marnie at some of the Heritage of Scotland summer schools at Stirling University .

Yes - I had it on a compilation album of Scottish folkies, sung by Jean Redpath.

I believe somewhere on a Mudcat thread, Jean Ritchie ("kentuckytrad") tells a story of hearing a Scottish singer performing Marnie, and afterward correcting a lyric - and his astonishment when he discovered that he was talking to the author of the song.

I uploaded my own version of this lovely song a couple of years ago using chords I worked out from a CD:

Come Fare Away (Including lyrics and chords)

From Jean Ritchie's songbook "Celebration of Life"

G / G / C / G /
G / G / A / D /
G / G / C / G /
G / D / G /

G / C G / G / D /
G / C G / G D / G /

on the last chord of the first line of the chorus
I like to play an /A D / instead of the / D /

and yes, she plays it in 4/4 time

a great song

Cheers, S. in Seattle
