                   C                                 F 
You're all dressed up to seize the world and all its toys 
            G    C G  C       F 
I hope it's roses  -  all the way

May you be lauded from Tiree to Arinsay

Tell the truth and shame the devil

When you play fair the field is always level

Don't go with Jezebels  -  they'll lead you to straight to hell

Find a girl whose heart is not for sale

With your sweet voices in my ears, such sweet release 
          G     C G     C      F 
The piper calls  -  and I must heed 
         C                                    F 
When the curlew's flying low, please think on me

When the curlew's flying low, please think on me
