Old Scots Drink  Misc. Unsigned Bands

Gie him [Am]drink until he [Fmaj7]wink,
He that's [C]sinking in [E]despair;
And liquor [Am]guid to fire his [Fmaj7]bluid,
That's [C]prest wi' grief and [E]care:
There let him [Am]bouse, an' deep [Fmaj7]carouse,
Wi' [C]bumpers flowing [E]o'er,
Till he [Am]forgets his loves or [Fmaj7]debts,
An' [C]minds his griefs no [E]more

Middle :
[Am]Well your sittin in the corner,
[Fmaj7]A fair, dram in yer hand (pronounced hon)
[C]An' Yer pickin up the pieces,
[E]Though you can barely stand (pronounced ston)

[Am]An' yeh picture her fine face,
[Fmaj7]All, gleaming white,
[C]As yer tryin to find yer way home,
[E]In the - dead of night.

[Am]You whisper in the darkness,
[Fmaj7]Even Though she cannot hear,
[C]A soft, but clear, I love you,
[E]A love a-washed with fear.
[Am]An' its the drink that does the talkin,
[Fmaj7]When the police pick you up,
[C]When youve been lying on the pavement,
[E]On the filth an' grime an' muck
[Am]But just before you know it,
[Fmaj7]Yer in the back eh' a squad car,
[C]Givin those poor coppers hastle,
[E]Wishin, you're back at the bar.
[Am]Coz the drink is dryin up now,
[Fmaj7]An' head is feelin sore,
[C]A night spent at the station,
[E]Before breaking down your own back door,
[Am]Because you lost the key that evening,
[Fmaj7]Somewhere along the road,
[C]Coz you cant escape the mindset,
[E]Of not doin what your told.
[Am]Coz life it aint that easy,
[Fmaj7]When every day is just the same,
[C]When every body's just plain boring,
[E]When no - body knows your name.
[Am]WHEN [Am]NOBODY [Am]KNOWS [Am]YOUR [Am]NAME
[Fmaj7]WHEN  [Fmaj7]NOBODY [Fmaj7]KNOWS [Fmaj7]YOUR  [Fmaj7]NAME
[C]LIFE [C]IS [C]NOT [C]THAT [C]EASY
[E]WHEN [E]NOBODY [E]KNOWS [E]YOUR [E]NAME
so

Gie him [Am]drink until he [Fmaj7]wink,
He that's [C]sinking in [E]despair;
And liquor [Am]guid to fire his [Fmaj7]bluid,
That's [C]prest wi' grief and [E]care:
There let him [Am]bouse, an' deep [Fmaj7]carouse,
Wi' [C]bumpers flowing [E]o'er,
Till he [Am]forgets his loves or [Fmaj7]debts,
An' [C]minds his griefs no [E]more

Cheers :D
