Zipster Origins: Green Hills of Tyrol/Scottish Soldier (29) Green Hills of Tyrol/Scottish Soldier 21 Feb 02

I have done a search on this, (I'm never very successful in digitrad, so apologies in advance if its already there.

I have the lyrics for this, and there, to an extent is the rub. This song will I'm sure for a certain generation of Scots always remind us of the sadly departed Andy Stewart. Unfortunately this genre of Scottish music, (White Heather Club and every Hogmanay show for many years)was not a true reflection of....well anything really. However I was at Murrayfield recently and on hearing a pipe band play it I realised what a truly rousing tune it is.

Ideally I would like to play it as an instrumental on guitar, but I don't have the musical ability to transpose the melody to chords. Can anyone help. If anyone furth of these isles isn't familiar with the tune, I do recommend it. Unfortunately as yet I don't know how to link to it.

Any help much appreciated.
