Subject: Chord Req: Chords for 'Hugh the Graeme'

Does anyone have chord suggestions for "Hugh the Graeme" as sung by Ewan MacColl (preferably), or "Patrick Spens" as sung by Fairport Convention (the tunes are roughly equivalent)? I know this song has come up in a thread before, but I could not find a chord request! Thanks for your help.

Hi, Alex - well, it's not in the Essential Ewan MacColl songbook, but the Traditional Ballad Index says MacColl sang Bronson tune #6. Maybe some kind soul has Bronson and will send me the tune or post the chords.

From Ewan MacColl's "Folk Songs and Ballads of Scotland" (Oak, 1965), musical arrangement by Peggy Seeger (so this is probably what she plays on guitar for the Tradition LP version, the only one I have or have heard):

The (G) laird o' (D) Hume he's a (G) huntin' (D) gane
(G)Over the (D) hills and (G) mountains (D) clear
And (Em) he has ta'en Sir Hugh the Graeme
For (D) stealin' (Em) o' the (G) Bishop's (Am) meer

(Dm) Tay ammarey, O (Am) Londonderry
(C) Tay ammarey, O (G) London (Am) dee.

Kelly, O'Brien, and Sproule do a great version of this song, although I am not sure it is the same chords.
