THE ROLLING HILLS OF THE BORDERS 3/4 (Matt McGinn)

Lyrics and chords fit the McCalmans’ version from their album ‘The Music And Song Of Scotland’ (with capo on 1st fret). Original version by composer Matt McGinn in D major (to change key set G=D, C=G, D7=A7, D=A, Em=Bm).

The River Tweed marks the Borderline between England and Scotland.

Intro: G-G-G-G

 

Chorus

(G)When I die, (C)bury me (G)low

Where I can hear the (D7)bonny Tweed (D)flow;

A (Em)sweeter place I (C)never did know,

Than the (G)rolling hills of the (D7)bor(G)ders. -G-G

 

(G)I have travelled (C)far and (G)wide,

Seen the Hudson (D7)and the (D)Clyde,

I've (Em)courted by Loch (C)Lomond's side,

But I (G)dearly love the (D7)bor(G)ders. -G-G

 

Chorus

G-G-D7-G-D7

 

It’s (G)well that I can (C)mind the (G)day,

With my lass I (D7)strolled by the (D)Tay,

But (Em)all his beauty (C)fades away,

A(G)mong the hills of the (D7)bor(G)ders. -G-G

 

Chorus

G-G-D7-G-D7

 

(G)There's a certain (C)peace of (G)mind

Bonnie lassies (D7)there you'll (D)find

The (Em)men are hard but (C)yet so kind,

A(G)mong the hills of the (D7)bor(G)ders. -G-G

 

Chorus 2x

G-G-D7-Em-C

G-G-D7-G-G-G-G
