Can anyone suggest some chords for "Kincardine Lads", also known as "Barley Bree", as sung by Old Blind Dogs and others? As a Kincardine lad myself, I'd greatly like to be able to play it!

OBDs play it in F - here it is in E, you could capo the first fret. To make it more interesting, substitute B for A where suggested.

   E                         A
So come, a' ye Kincardine lads
E                      A
Come along wi' me
E                            A
We'll ging doon tae Sandy's still
    F#m                   A (or B)
And tak the barley bree

Chorus (after each verse):

         E                              A
Wi' a hi dum a doo dum a daddy o
F#m                         A (or B)
Hi dum a doo dum a daddy o
E                              A
Hi dum a doo dum a daddy o
F#m                         A (or B)
Hi dum a doo dum a daddy o

Sandy rade his auld gray mare
He rode the break o' day
Sayin', "Laddie, laddie, gyan yersel'
The gaugers are on their way"

The gaugers, they cam tae the hoose
They ran richt up the stair
Searched the room, a' richt aroon
But they fund nae bottles there

They pu'd the blankets aff the bed
Threw them on the flair
Maggie, she cam runnin' ben
Sayin', "Ye beggars, get oot the door"

Well, Sandy Callum made the still
He made it tae a plan
So it would stand away oot there
And mak the doubles strang

So come, a' ye Kincardine lads
Come along wi' me
We'll ging doon tae Sandy's still
And tak the barley bree

Many thanks Michael! I play the uke, and E is a very difficult chord to play on it. Am I right in thinking that in F it would be:

F                         Bb
So come, a' ye Kincardine lads
F               Bb
Come along wi' me
F                      Bb
We'll ging doon tae Sandy's still
    Gm             F (or C)
And tak the barley bree

I'm a relative musical novice, so I may have stated the obvious, or I may be way off.

Quite right, except it should be Gm to Bb. Playing through it again, a C doesn't seem to fit that well in the verse, but could be an option in the chorus. Have fun!
