The Drunk Scotsman  

[E]Well a Scotsman clad in [A]kilt left a [E]bar one evening fair,
And one could tell by [A]how he walked he\'d [B7]drunk more than his share.
He [A]fumbled \'round [E]until he could no [A]longer keep his [E]feet,
And he [E]stumbled off [A]into the grass to [B7]sleep beside the [E]street.
[A]Ring-ding-diddle-iddle-adi-o
[E]Ring-da-diddly-ai-[B7]o
[E]And he stumbled off [A]into the grass to [B7]sleep beside the [E]street.

[E]About that time two [A]young and lovely [E]girls just happened by,
One says to the [A]other with a [B7]twinkle in her eye,
[A]See yon sleeping [E]Scotsman, so [A]strong and handsome [E]build,
I wonder if it\'s [A]true what they don\'t [B7]wear beneath the [E]kilt?
[A]Ring-ding-diddle-iddle-adi-o
[E]Ring-da-diddly-ai-[B7]o
[E]I wonder if it\'s [A]true what they don\'t [B7]wear beneath the [E]kilt?

[E]They crept up on that [A]sleeping Scotsman, [E]quiet as could be,
Lifted up his [A]kilt about an [B7]inch so they could see.
And [A]there, behold, for [E]them to view [A]beneath his Scottish [E]skirt,
Was nothing more than [A]God had graced him [B7]with upon his [E]birth.
[A]Ring-ding-diddle-iddle-adi-o
[E]Ring-da-diddly-ai-[B7]o
[E]Was nothing more than [A]God had graced him [B7]with upon his [E]birth.
[E]They marveled for a [A]moment than one [E]said, We must be gone,
Let\'s leave a present [A]for our friend be[B7]fore we move along.
[A]As a gift they [E]left a blue silk [A]ribbon tied into a [E]bow,
Around the bonny-[A]star the Scot\'s [B7]kilt did lift and [E]show.
[A]Ring-ding-diddle-iddle-adi-o
[E]Ring-da-diddly-ai-[B7]o
[E]Around the bonny-[A]star the Scot\'s [B7]kilt did lift and [E]show.
Now the [E]Scotsman woke to [A]nature\'s call and [E]stumbled towards a tree,
Behind the bush he [A]lifts his kilt and [B7]gawks at what he sees.
And in a [A]startled voice he [E]says to [A]what\'s before his [E]eyes,
Lad I don\'t know [A]where ya been but I [B7]see you won first [E]prize.
[A]Ring-ding-diddle-iddle-adi-o
[E]Ring-da-diddly-ai-[B7]o
[E]Lad I don\'t know [A]where ya been but I [E]see you [A]won [B7]first [E]prize.
