THE MOOR ROAD Lyrics Guitar Chords 3/4 (Ian McCalman)

The Moor Road refers to the road between Kllchattan Bay & Rothesay on the Scottish Island of Bute, a mile from Ian McCalman's father’s birthplace

The McCalman’s played this song in the key of A with capo on 2nd fret, chords by Marc Fahrbach.

Chorus

(G)High on the (D)crest of the (Em)moor (C)road

(G)Nothing much (Em)matters, no (G)trouble or (D)care

(G)Wandering (D7)over the (Em)moor (C)road

(G)Out in the (D)west island (C)there

(G)Nobody (D)bothers me (G)there

 

(G)Take me a(D)way on the (Em)moor (C)road,

(G)Winding its (Em)way to Kil(G)chattan be(D)low

But I’ll (G)tarry a (D7)while before (Em)walking that (C)mile

And (G)stay where the (D)soft breezes (G)blow.

(Em)I may stroll (D)west, then (G)down to Kin(C)garth

To (G)share a cold (Em)beer with an (C)elegant (D)pal

But I (G)just might stay (D7)here on the (Em)moor (C)road

And (G)think, and (D)think a (G)while.

 

Chorus

 

As I (G)lie on the (D)grass looking (Em)up at the (C)sky

(G)Watching the (Em)lark flying (G)lazy and (D)free

And their (G)song tells the (D7)world they’re as (Em)happy as (C)I,

There’s (G)no place that (D)I’d rather (G)be.

I’ll (Em)do what I am (D)good at that’s (G)nothing at (C)all

And (G)look at the (Em)universe (C)spinning a(D)round

I could (G)fly away (D7)up to that (Em)far distant (C)sun

But I’ll (G)probably (D)stay on the (G)ground.

 

Chorus

 

(G)Take me a(D)way on the (Em)moor (C)road,

(G)Winding its (Em)way to Kil(G)chattan be(D)low

But I’ll (G)tarry a (D7)while before (Em)walking that (C)mile

And (G)stay where the (D)soft breezes (G)blow.

I sup(Em)pose I should (D)move away- (G)everyone (C)must

From the (G)place that they (Em)know and the (C)place that they (D)trust

But I’ll (G)come back a(D7)gain to the (Em)moor (C)road,

(G)Looking at (D)life from a(G)bove.

 

(G)High on the (D)crest of the (Em)moor (C)road

(G)Nothing much (Em)matters, no (G)trouble or (D)care

(G)Wandering (D7)over the (Em)moor (C)road

(G)Out in the (D)west island (C)there

(G)Nobody (D)bothers me (C)there

(G)Nobody (D)bothers me (G)there
