     A chord diagramE minorEm                              A chord diagramA minorAm
There stands three trumpeters on yon hill
A chord diagramE minorEm           A chord diagramBB          A chord diagramE minorEm
Blaw, blaw, blaw winds, blaw
     A chord diagramE minorEm                                   A chord diagramA minorAm
And they Blaw their trumpets sae loud and shrill

And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa'

There's ae thing ye maun dae for me
