Can anyone help with chords for this classic? I know the lyrics are in the database but I haven't found the chords.

Simple - it's basically a three-chorder. D, G and A will get you through. I stick in Bm and F#m for the "it's not the roar o' sea or shore" line, as they do in this nice version.

I looked up 'tassie.' It's a Scottish word for a small cup. I suspect it's related to the German, Tasse, 'cup.'

The lyrics for this and the sticks & dots are now in the DT.

I found the tune a disappointment - a huge range (mid C to high F) and not much melody. I doubt if it was intended as a vocal piece when it was composed.   If I wanted to sing this Burns poem, I would write a new tune for it.
