The King's Shilling Ukulele Chords

Oh my [G]love has [D]left me with [A]bairnies [D]twa
And [A]that’s the [G]last of him I [A]ever [D]saw
He [G]joined the [D]army and he’s [A]marched a[D]wa’
He [G]took the [D]shilling
He [G]took the [D]shilling and he’s [A]off to [D]war.

Come [G]laddies [D]come, hear the [G]cannons roar
Take the [D]King’s shilling and you’re [A]off to [D]war

Oh he [G]looked sae [D]prood and sae [A]gallant [D]then
With his [A]kilt and [G]sporran and his [A]musket [D]gun
And the [G]ladies [D]kissed them as they [A]marched a[D]long
And they [G]sailed a[D]wa’ boys
They [G]sailed a[D]wa’, boys, by the [A]Broomie [D]law

Come [G]laddies [D]come, hear the [G]cannons roar
Take the [D]King’s shilling and we’re [A]off to [D]war
Come [G]laddies [D]come, hear the [G]cannons roar
Take the [D]King’s shilling and we’re [A]off to [D]war

The [G]pipes did [D]play as they [A]marched a[D]long
And the [A]men they [G]sang oot a [A]battle [D]song
“March [G]on, march [D]on,” cried our [A]Captain [D]gay
For [G]King and [D]country
For [G]King and [D]country we will [A]fight this [D]day

Come [G]laddies [D]come, hear the [G]cannons roar
Take the [D]King’s shilling and we’re [A]off to [D]war
Come [G]laddies [D]come, hear the [G]cannons roar
Take the [D]King’s shilling and we’re [A]off to [D]war

The [G]battle [D]echoed to the [A]sound of [D]guns
And [A]bayonets [G]flashed in the [A]morning [D]sun
The [G]drums did [D]beat and the [A]cannons [D]roared
And the [G]shilling [D]didn’t seem
The [G]shilling [D]didn’t seem much [A]worth no [D]more

Come [G]laddies [D]come, hear the [G]cannons roar
Take the [D]King’s shilling and we’re [A]off to [D]war
Come [G]laddies [D]come, hear the [G]cannons roar
Take the [D]King’s shilling and we’re [A]off to [D]war

Some [G]lost the [D]battle, their [A]bodies [D]fell
Cut [A]doon by [G]bayonets and [A]musket [D]ball
And [G]many [D]of these [A]brave young [D]men
Would [G]never [D]fight for
Would [G]never [D]fight for their [A]King a[D]gain

Come [G]laddies [D]come, hear the [G]cannons roar
Take the [D]King’s shilling and we’re [A]off to [D]war
Come [G]laddies [D]come, hear the [G]cannons roar
Take the [D]King’s shilling and we’re [A]off to [D]war

Oh my [G]love has [D]left me with [A]bairnies [D]twa
And [A]that’s the [G]last of him I [A]ever [D]saw
He [G]joined the [D]army and he’s [A]marched a[D]wa’
He [G]took the [D]shilling
He [G]took the [D]shilling and he’s [A]off to [D]war.
