Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This may not be 100% but I just figured out the chords plainly.  He does hammer on and 
such but I wanted it to be easier than all that.  This is just the basic for beginners... 
such as myself.  I believe it's originally in the key of [Bm] but as follows is the best I can do.


Ma [Dm]name's Duncan [Am]Campbell fae the [C]shire o Ar[Dm]gyll

Then A'd [Dm]show ye a [Am]game played in [C]Erin-go-[Dm]Bragh

An a [Dm]lump o black[Am]thorn that A [C]held in ma [Dm]fist
Aroun his big [Am]bodie A [C]made it tae [Dm]twist
And the blude fae his [Am]napper A [Dm]quickly did [C]draw
An [Dm]paid him stock-an-[Am]interest for [C]Erin-go-[Dm]Bragh

An the [Dm]people cam [Am]roun like a [C]flock o wild [Dm]geese
Sayin catch that daft [Am]rascal he's [C]killt the [Dm]polis
And for every frins [Am]A had Ah [Dm]sweir he had [C]twa
