OK, my previous message looking for chords to ALtan's "Lass of Glenshee" failed, so let's try this: does anyone have the Arlo Guthrie/Pete Seeger version on CD and if so could you tell me if they sing the song or is it just instrumental? It's on their Precious Friend album. DOes anyone have this song in a Pete Seeger or Arlo Guthrie songbook?

Hello Susan-Marie,
I got the Preious friend LP, but it is at the old home place and I haven`t heard it for quite a while. If I remember correctly it was a whistle solo.
Best wishes
Ernest

Hi, Susan-Marie. I have a CD with Altan's 'Lass of Glenshee'. I've never sat down to work out the chords, but if you give me a couple of days, and no one else responds in the meantime, maybe I can help you out. Regards ... -btmp

Here's what I use from the Altan version

   Am             D          F         Dm
One morning in springtime as day was a-dawning
       Em                   C       D
Bright Phoebus had risen from over the lea,
    Am          G       F             Dm
I espied a fair maiden as homeward she wandered
    Em             D          F       G    Am
From herding her flocks on the hills of Glenshee.

This is what I use, and is similar to Alison's notation:

LASS OF GLENSHEE

- - - - Am - - - - - D - - - - - - F - - - - - Dm - -
One morning in springtime as day was a-dawning,

- - - - Am - - - - - - Em - - - - - C - - - D -
Bright Phoebes had risen from over the lea.

- - Am - - - - - Em - - - - F - - - - - - - - - Dm - - -
I spied a fair maiden as homeward she wandered      

- - - - - Em - - - - - D - - - - - - F - - - - G - Am - - D -
From herding her flocks on the hills of Glenshee.

This thread certainly caught my eye, as I just sang this last night at a local singers' circle! Unaccompanied though. I knew the Altan version, but never knew Arlo Guthrie had done any version, sung or otherwise - I'll have to check for that one. Thanks to those who posted chords, which I will try out as well.

There is no such thing as Arlo Guthrie's Lass of Glenshee. TLOG is a traditional song which is found extensively in Ireland, Scotland and North America.

My guess, FWIW is that Guthrie learned it directly or indirectly from Len Graham's LP Ye Lovers All. Claddagh. CC 41. Where Len got it, I do not know, but he is always scrupulous about naming his sources, so it will doubtless be in the sleevenotes.

Whatever, TLOG does not belong to Arlo Guthrie. It belongs to all of us.

You can hear Altan's version here. It's a lovely tune.

"There is no such thing as Arlo Guthrie's Lass of Glenshee. TLOG is a traditional song which is found extensively in Ireland, Scotland and North America."
You might think there was no such thing as Arlo Guthrie's "Gal I left behind me," but his version is copyrighted. The lyrics differ from the version collected by J. Fingers in 1897 in the following ways: "gal" is changed the the politically correct "girl". "if the Indians they don't find me" is changed to the grammatically correct "if the Indians don't find me, boys."
But Pete Seeger makes no claim of ownership for his banjo version on God Bless the Grass, which you can hear on YouTube.
