Subject: Chord Req: Tranent Muir & Lads O' The Fair

Been looking around for the chords of Tranent Muir by Tannahill Weavers and Lads O' The Fair by anyone, although the North Sea Gas version from Caledonia Connection is absolutely brilliant. I've looked everywhere for these with no luck; has anyone any info on where to find them? Thanks,

Ross

Lads O' The Fair, from the Battle field Band Song Book. R

    A               
Come bonny lass, lie near me
    D
And let the brandy cheer ye
                G                  D
For the road to Fife and Falkirk's lang
                      A
And cold and wet and weary
    A7
My trade it is the weavin'
         D
At the bonny toon o' Leven
                      G                      D
And I'll drink to the health o1 the farmers' dames
                A       D
Wha'll buy my cloth the morn

Chorus         
            D
For ye can see them a'
      G          D
The lads o' the fair

Lads o' the Forth and the Carron water
                  G       D
Workin' lads and lads wi' gear

Lads wha'll sell ye the provost's daughter
                        G      D
Soldiers back frae the German wars
                     A
Pedlars up frae the border
    G             D       A             Bm
nd lassies wi' an eye for mair than the kye
       G       D       A   D
At the Trystin' Fair at Falkirk

I believe Brian McNeil is the author; he's a solo "freelancer" these days.

Lads o' the Fair
(Brian McNeill of Falkirk)
(capo first fret)
E
            E                                  A       E
Come, bonnie lass, and lie near me,
       A                        D       A
And let the brandy cheer ye,
A          D                A          D             A      
For the road frae Fife to Falkirk's lang
A      D             A             E
And cold and wet an' dreary.
E                              A      E
My trade, it is the weaving
            A                         D    A
At the bonnie toon o' Leven;
A             D                  A                      D               A
An' we'll drink to the health o' the fairmer's dames
            D             E               A
Who'll buy oor claith the morn

cho:
                         A                D         A                D      
    For ye can see them a', the lads o' the fair,
    A                      D                      A          E       A
    Lads frae the Forth an' the Carron Water,
    A                            D            A
    Workin' lads an' lads wi' gear,
    A                                     D                E      A
    Lads that'll sell ye the provost's dochter,
    A                                  D             A
    Sogers back frae the German Wars,
    A                                  D    A
    Peddlers up frae the Border;
D                            A          E                      F#m
An' lassies wi' an eye for mair than the kye,
A                         D       E    A
At the tryst an' fair o' Falkirk

Come, Geordie, lead the pony for the path is steep an' stony,
An' we're three lang weeks frae the Isle o' Skye.
An' the beasts are thin an' bony.
We'll tak the last o' the siller.
An' we'll buy oorsels a gill or two;
An' we'll drink tae lads who'll buy oor kye.
In Falkirk in the morn.

Stan here an' I'll show ye, there's the toon below ye,.
But ye'd best bide here in the barn the nicht
For the nichtwatch dinna know ye.
Ma brither, he's a plooman an' I'm for the feein' noo, man;
Sae we'll drink tae the price o' the harvest corn
In Falkirk in the morn.

O, the wark o' the weaver's over, likewise the days o' the drover,
An' a plowboy sits on a tractor noo; (too high tae see the clover,)
The workin's no so steady, but the lads are past the ready.
For tae drink a health tae the workin' man in Falkirk in the morn.

based of of old blind dogs play of the song
