Try it again, ParaHandy. It works for me.

There are loads of others, just google Farewell to the Creeks or Banks of Sicily.

From the countess's link...



( Words : Hamish Henderson / Music : Pipe-Major J. Robertson )

The pipie is dozie, the pipie is fey
He wullnae come roun for his vino the day
The sky owre Messina is unco an gray
An aa the bricht chaumers are eerie

Farweill ye banks o Sicily
Fare ye weill ye valley an shaw
There's nae Jock will mourn the kyles o ye
Puir bliddy swaddies are wearie
    [Aa the bricht chaumers are eerie]
Farweill ye banks o Sicily
Fare ye weill ye valley an shaw
There's nae hame can smoor the wiles o ye
Puir bliddy swaddies are wearie
    [Aa the bricht chaumers are eerie]

Then doun the stair an line the watterside
Wait yer turn the ferry's awa
Then doun the stair an line the watterside
Aa the bricht chaumers are eerie

The drummie is polisht, the drummie is braw
He cannae be seen for his wabbin ava
He's beezed himsell up for a photie an aa
Tae leave wi his Lola, his dearie

Farweill ye banks o Sicily
Fare ye weill ye sheilin an haa
We'll aa mind shebeens an bothies
Whaur kind signorinas were cheerie
Farweill ye banks o Sicily
Fare ye weill ye sheilin an haa
We'll aa mind shebeens an bothies
Whaur Jock made a date wi his dearie

Then tune the pipes an drub the tenor drum
Leave yer kit this side o the waa
Then tune the pipes an drub the tenor drum
Aa the bricht chaumers are eerie
    [Puir bluidy swaddies are wearie]

©Hamish Henderson

If you play it in Dmajor, then simple chords are D,G,D,G until the word 'day' and he first syllable of 'Eerie' which should be A. It should be obvious when to play D or G.
The same for the chorus with A on the wa' (a-wa).
As I said these are simple chords and no doubt others could be added.
Jim
