Could it be a variant (or a pre-variant) of "Who Will Sing for Me?".

Dan, I hope you don't get offended, because this is supposed to convey a gentle, but friendly, chiding tone. I get a little frustrated when people post messages about songs not in our database and say, "I have the lyrics, but can you give me the chords?"
If you've got the lyrics and we don't please post 'em. That's part of the idea of this forum - we all share what we know, and then we can be surprised at all we learn. The song sounds interesting - can you post the lyrics for us? Besides, posting the entire lyrics may give somebody the clue they need to remember the song and come up with chords for you. Thanks.

Absolutely, Joe. But they're at home in a CD thingie. I will bring them to work and post them up. It is a very interesting song on a Jean Redpath album--I think it's on "Lowlands."

Hope this'll save you the trouble, Dan Evergreen. An unusual song, and Jean lists it as 'Trad.' I can't help you with the chords, though.

WHO SHALL COUNT FOR THEE

Rich in gold thou art; in thy hand is plenty.
Silver is thy store, and yet thy heart is empty.
Who shall count for thee, and what shall be the measure?
What in time shall prove to be thy greatest treasure?

Rich in pride and fame, dearly has it cost thee.
Noted is thy name, and yet thy friends have lost thee.
Who shall count for thee, and what shall be the measure?
What in time shall prove to be thy greatest treasure?

Rich in silks and fine coats of softest leather,
Yet can they the storm of friendless trouble weather?
Who shall count for thee, and what shall be the measure?
What in time shall prove to be thy greatest treasure?

Rich in music sweet, strings and voice combining,
Yet bitter is thy tongue, by foes and friends aligning.
Who shall count for thee, and what shall be the measure?
What in time shall prove to be thy greatest treasure?

Rich in loving poured like a rain upon thee,
Not for love's reward, but angry glances from thee;
Yet I shall count for thee unto the fullest measure.
Constancy shall prove by friends thy greatest treasure.

Here's a link to the sample download for this song as sung by Jean Redpath. I'm certain someone will be happy to work out the chords.

Fourteen years have passed since the chords were requested, and that kind of takes the fun out of it. But I listened to the music you linked, Maeve, and I've determined that it's in the key of B flat.

That should help if anybody want to take it from there. It's a good song.

I suppose the song is asking who will count when the funeral bell tolls for this wealthy yet friendless person.

Jean Redpath credits it to Rosie Hardman. Rosie recorded it on her Firebird album in 1972.
It's beautifully crafted, as are all her songs, so I would not be surprised if Rosie had written it.
