Subject: Chord Req: Kirk ‘o Birnie Bouzle Chords
From: GUEST,Pallando the Blue

Hello folks, happy holidays. I am on a hunt for chords to the song “Birnie Bouzle”

From Brigit’s Well, the lyrics are as follows:

Gin ye'll marry me, lassie,
At the kirk o' Birnie Bouzle,
Till the day ye dee, lassie,
Ye shall ne'er repent it.

Ye shall wear when ye are wed
A kirtle and a hieland plaid,
Sleep upon a heather bed
Sae couthie and sae canty.

Ye shall gan sae braw, lassie,
Tae the kirk o' Birnie Bouzle,
Little brogues and a', lassie,
Vow! but ye'll be canty.

Yer wee bit tocher is but sma',
But hodden gray will wear for a',
I'll save my siller tae mak' ye braw,
Ye shall ne'er repent it.

We'll ha' bonnie bairns and a',
Some lassies fair and laddies braw,
Like their mother ane and a',
And yer father he's consented.

I'll hunt the otter and the brock,
The hart, the hare, the heather cock,
I'll pull ye limpets frae the rock
Tae mak' ye dishes dainty.

Thanks for any help.

This is what somebody said in another thread. Don't know if it's enough to help.

    am & G


I first heard this song performed by Gordeanna McCulloch, so I always think of this song as a cappella:

A very simple set would be as follows:


(Am) Gin ye'll marry me, lassie,
(G)At the kirk o' Birnie Bouzle,
(Am)Till the day ye dee, lassie,
(G)Ye shall ne'er re (Am) pent it.

(Am) Ye shall wear when ye are wed
(G)A kirtle and a hieland plaid,
(Am) Sleep upon a heather bed
(G) Sae couthie and sae (Am) canty.

Or any combination of minor chord plus major below it in the scale, e.g. Em/D, Dm/C.
But as Joe suggests, it’s most often sung a cappella.

We do play “The Braes o’ Tulliemet” (as mentioned in the link there) in one of the ceilidh bands I’m in for dancing the Highland Schottische. It hadn’t occurred to me before that it was the tune for this song!
