Subject: Chord Req: Silver Darlings (Jim McLean, Bob Halfin)
From: Timo_Tuokkola

Can anyone please provide me with the chords to the song "Silver Darlings"? I just heard the song on a little breath of scotland with Dennis Snowdon on am 740, and would love to add the song to my repertoire. The lyrics are as follows:

Oh herring are harvest that fishermen glean
Where flashes the silver through deep ocean green,
And when herring harvests reach old Aberdeen,
They're known as the silver darlin's. CHORUS

Chorus:
Silver darlings on Aberdeen quay,
Brought by the fishermen home from the sea
To the city that stands 'twixt the Don and the Dee,
The home of the Silver Darlings.

The boats leave the harbour, their wakes spreadin' wide
And empty they roll with the swell of the tide.
Oh, soon may their hatches be thrown open wide
With a catch of the silver darlin's. CHORUS

There's ice on the riggin' and death down below,
With the gales screaming wild and the glass hangin' low.
The wives and the sweethearts are women who know
The price of the silver darlin's. CHORUS

I don't have the time right now to place the chords over the words, but if you sing it in F then you only need Bb and C and I think it's obvious where the chord changes are.
