Tattie Bogle Chord Req: Kirk o Birnie Bouzle Chords (10) RE: Chord Req: Kirk o Birnie Bouzle Chords 27 Dec 20

A very simple set would be as follows:

(Am) Gin ye'll marry me, lassie,
(G)At the kirk o' Birnie Bouzle,
(Am)Till the day ye dee, lassie,
(G)Ye shall ne'er re (Am) pent it.

(Am) Ye shall wear when ye are wed
(G)A kirtle and a hieland plaid,
(Am) Sleep upon a heather bed
(G) Sae couthie and sae (Am) canty.

Or any combination of minor chord plus major below it in the scale, e.g. Em/D, Dm/C.
But as Joe suggests, its most often sung a cappella.
