                [Chorus]
A                   D            E
Saw ye Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy
A                         E    D
Saw ye Rory Murphy comin' frae Dumbarton
A                   D            E
Saw ye Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy
A                         E    D
Saw ye Rory Murphy comin' frae Dumbarton
 
[Verse]
 
A              D     E
Now Rory was a piper bold
A                 D      E
Hieland blood wi' in him flowed
A                   D          E
And lowland bodies' hearts aye glowed
A               G    A
To the tunes of Rory Murphy
A                       D           E
He filled the warriors' breasts wi' fire
A                       D        E
He cheered the heart o' sage and sire
A                      D      E
And made the listening groups admire
A           E       A
As he gae'd through Dumbarton
 
[Chorus]
A                   D            E
Saw ye Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy
A                         E    D
Saw ye Rory Murphy comin' frae Dumbarton
 
[Verse]
A                D      E
He had a beard o'lammer gloss
A                       D        E
His cheeks were fresher than the rose
A                     D         A
His sparkling eyes as black A sloe's
A             G       A
And a nose as red's a partan
A              D       E
Rory stood six foot or more
A                  D          E
The brawest man on Scotland's shore
A                   D   E
And all the lassies did adore
A.        E A
The piper o'Dumbarton
 
[Chorus]
A                   D            E
Saw ye Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy
A                         E    D
Saw ye Rory Murphy comin' frae Dumbarton
 
[Verse]
A                       D     E
He oft times played the night awa'
A                D        E
And never was he tired at aw
A               D       E
Piping note for one and a'
A                G      A
And a tune for a lovely tartan
A                  D     A
When Rory drank an extra gill
A                   D         A
He made his chanter sound say shrill
A                 D         A
You'd hear him on Benlomond Hill
A        G     A
As clear as in Dumbarton
 
[Chorus]
A                   D            E
Saw ye Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy
A                         E    D
Saw ye Rory Murphy comin' frae Dumbarton
 
[Verse]
A                     D   E
'Twas whisky that did him betray
A                         D          E
While tottering home more drunk each day
A                    D        E
He fell headlong all doon the brae
A               G        A
That killed him dead for certain
A                      D      E
No more we'll hear his witchy tones
A                      D       E
No more he'll blow his Hieland drones
A                  D           E
His bones lie cold beneath the stones
A               E   A
In the kirkyard o'  Dumbarton
 
[Chorus]
A                  D            E
Saw ye Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy
A                         E    D
Saw ye Rory Murphy comin' frae Dumbarton
 
A                   D            E
Saw ye Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy
A                         E    D
Saw ye Rory Murphy comin' frae Dumbarton
A                   D            E
Saw ye Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy, Rory Murphy
A                         E    D
Saw ye Rory Murphy comin' frae Dumbarton
