E A B7 EWell a Scotsman clad in kilt left the bar one evening fair
A E B7And one could tell by how he walked that he'd drunk more than his share
A E B7He fumbled round until he could no longer keep his feet
E B7 A B7 EAnd he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street
A E B7Ring ding diddlediddle ay de o, ring di diddly ay o
E B7 A B7 EAnd he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street
E A B7 E About that time two young and lovely girls just happened by
A E B7One said to the other with a twinkle in her eye
A See yon sleeping Scotsman
E B7 So strong and handsome built
E A B7 EI wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt
A E B7Ring ding diddlediddle ay de o, ring di diddly ay o
E A B7 EI wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt
E AThey crept up on that sleeping Scotsman
B7 EQuiet as could be
A E B7And lifted up his Kilt an inch so they could see
A E B7And there behold for them to view beneath his Scottish skirt
E A B7 EWas nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth
A E B7Ring ding diddlediddle ay de o, ring di diddly ay o
E A B7 EWas nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth
E AThey marveled for a moment
B7 E Then one said we must be gone
A E B7Let's leave a present for our friend before we move along
A E B7As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon tied into a bow
E A B7 EAround the bonnie star the Scotsman's kilt did lift and show
A E B7Ring ding diddlediddle ay de o, ring di diddly ay o
E A B7 EAround the bonnie star the Scotsman's kilt did lift and show
E ANow the Scotsman woke to natures call
B7 EAnd stumbled toward a tree
ABehind the bush he lifts his kilt
E B7 And gawks at what he sees
A And in a startled voice he says
E B7To what's before his eyes
E A B7 EAch, lad I don't no where ya've been but I see ya won first prize
