The Great Silkie Guitar Chords By The Corries. A traditional Scottish song. This ballad comes from the North Of Scotland, a ballad concerning ''A Seal Man''  who's one of the legentary characters who is part seal and part man. When he's at sea he's a seal and when he's on land he's a man. The unfortunate thing about this character is that he can only mate when he's a man, so he has to come on land every so often to find a maiden where he seduces her and leaves her bearing his off-spring. He heads back to sea for a few years before returning as a man to reclaim his son.
