Is There For Honest Poverty

	  		Intro: G  C  G  C  (x2) 

Verse 

   G                C    D 
Is there for honest poverty 
     G                  C 
That hings his head an' a' that? 
    G                C        D 
The coward slave, we pass him by 
   G                D 
We dare be pair for a' that 
    G            C  D 
For a' that, an' a' that 
    G                 C 
Our toils obscure an' a' that 
    G               C 
The rank is but the guinea's stamp 
    G         C        D 
The man's the gowd for a' that 

Verse 

    G                C       D 
But though on hamely fare we dine 
     G               C 
Wear hoddin gray an' a' that? 
    G                     C            D 
Gie fools their silks and knaves their wine 
  G               D 
A man's a man for a' that 
    G            C  D 
For a' that, an' a' that 
      G               C 
Their tinsel show an' a' that 
    G                 C 
The honest man though e'er sae poor 
   G       C       D        G  C  G  C 
Is king o' men for a' that 

Verse 

   G              C      D 
Ye see yon birkie ca'd a lord 
    G                     C 
Wha struts an' stares an' a' that? 
       G                C      D 
Though hundreds worship at his word 
     G              D 
He's but a cuif for a' that 
    G            C  D 
For a' that, an' a' that 
    G                  C 
His ribband, star, an' a' that 
    G          C 
The man o' independent mind 
   G         C         D 
He looks an' laughs at a' that 

Verse 

  G                C      D 
A prince can mak a belted knight 
  G                  C 
A marquis, duke, an' a' that 
       G             C        D 
But an honest man's aboon his might 
     G               D 
Guid faith, he mauna fa' that 
    G            C  D 
For a' that, an' a' that 
      G             C 
Their dignities an' a' that 
    G                 C 
The pith o' sense an' pride o' worth 
    G      C         D 
Are higher rank than a' that 

Instrumental: G  C  G  C  (x2) 

Verse
 
     A                 D       E 
Then let us pray, that come it may 
   A                D 
As come it will for a' that 
     A                    D      E 
That sense and worth o'er a' the earth 
      A                 E 
Shall bear the gree an' a' that 
    A            D  E 
For a' that, an' a' that 
     A              D 
It's comin' yet for a' that 
     A              D 
That man to man the world o'er 
      A        D      E 
Shall brithers be for a' that
