Southern bound from Glasgow town
        Am7/G         F
She’s shining in the sun
             Am
My Scotsoun Lassie
C              F
On the border run
        Am
We’re whistling down the hillsides
     Am7/G           F
and tearing up the climbs
             Am     C
I’m just a thiever
          F
Stealing time
               Am
In the border reiver

       Am
Eight hundred thousand on the clock
      Am7/G         F
And plenty more to go
               Am
Crash box and lever
     C                  F
She needs the heel and toe
       Am
She’s not too cold in winter
         Am7/G           F
But she cooks me in the heat
                 Am
I’m a six foot driver
         C                F
But you can’t adjust the seat
               Am
In the border reiver

F
              C
“Sure as the sun rise”
                  Em           F
That’s what they say about the Albion
              C
“Sure as the sun rise”
                  Em           F
That’s what they say about the Albion

She’s an Albion
         Am
She’s an Albion

     Am            
The Ministry don’t bother me
    Am7/G         F
My paperwork’s alright
            Am
They can’t touch me
   C                 F    
I got my sleep last night
       Am                          Am7/G  F   
It’s knocking out a living wage in   1969
             Am     C
I’m just a thiever
