Lochanside (Tune by John McLellan; words and arrangement Jim Malcolm)


D Come theˆwinter, cold and dreary

D A Brings aˆhawk doon frae the high scree

A D Tae theˆwhin where snowy hares hide

Em A7 D A aroond the Lochanside


D Come theˆspring thë land lies weary

D A Till theˆsun shines oot sae cheery

A D Brings theˆbloom, for a o June's pride

Em A7 D A aroond the Lochanside


D If ye'd been ye'd have seen the scatter

G A O the peezies o'er the machair

A D When aboon the tawny ool glides

A7 D A aroond the Lochanside


D And the heron he comes a-creeping

G A Through the rashes sae green and dreeping

A D Tae the pool whaur wily troot slide

A7 D A aroond the Lochanside


A D Aye if you ever hae a reason

A (D)A7 Tae be here in ony season

D G Come and try the barley bree in

Em A7 D Roond the fire on Lochanside


D Summer time - the fish are louping

D A Dippers in the burnies couping

A D Swallaes flee frae dawn til e’entide

Em A7 D A aroond the Lochanside


D By the autumn the pinks are winging

D A Blaeberries o'er the moors are hinging

A D Salmon through the surging spate fight

Em A7 D A aroond the Lochanside

D If ye'd been ye'd have seen the scatter

G A O' the peezies o'er the machair

A D When aboon the tawny ool glides

Em A7 D A aroond the Lochanside


D And the heron he comes a-creeping

G A Through the rashes sae green and dreeping

A D Tae the pool whaur wily troot slide

Em A7 D A aroond the Lochanside


A D Aye if you ever hae a reason

A (D)A7 Tae be here in ony season

D G Come and try the barley bree in

Em A7 D Roond the fire on Lochanside


A D Aye if you ever hae a notion

A (D)A7 Tae be welcomed wi devotion

D G Traivel home o'er ony ocean

Em A7 D Tae be here on Lochanside.
