capo 3

     Em                              Am
There stands three trumpeters on yon hill
Em           B          Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
     Em                                   Am
And they Blaw their trumpets sae loud and shrill
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'

  Em                      Am
Gin I'd his trumpet in my kist
Em           B           Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
     Em                              Am
And were in the lad's arms that I like best
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'

Em                     Am
Gin ye would be wed wi' me
Em           B           Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
     Em                         Am
There's ae thing ye maun dae for me
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'

Em                      Am
I maun hae a fine linen sark
Em           B           Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
 Em                      Am
Without a stitch o' needlewark
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'
 
 Em                         Am
Ye maun wash it in yon draw-well
Em           B           Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
     Em                      Am
Where water never sprang nor fell
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'

 Em                       Am
Ye maun drt't on yon hawthorn
Em           B           Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
     Em                              Am
That hasna seen blossom since man was born
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'

Em                   Am
Gin I mak'a sark for thee
Em           B           Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
    Em                         Am
There's ae thing ye maun tae me dae
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'

     Em                   Am
My faither has an acre o' land
Em           B           Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
       Em                  Am
Ye maun ploo it wi' your ae hand
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'
 
 Em                    Am
Ye maun sow it wantin' corn
Em           B           Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
     Em                       Am
And roll it wi' a sheep's shank-bone
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'
 
  Em                              Am
Ye maun shear it wi' a scythe o' leather
Em           B           Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
     Em                     Am
And bind it wi' a peacock's feather
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'
 
Em                      Am
Ye maun stook it in the sea
Em           B           Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
     Em                         Am
And bring the whaetsheaf dry tae me
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'

     Em                       Am
And gin you wark noo all this wark
Em           B           Em
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
Em                              Am
Come to me and you'll get your sark
        Em                 B    Em
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'
