Rolling Hills (Matt McGinn)

Guitar tuning: Gsus4/4 (CGDGCD)

Lyrics

I've travelled far, I’ve wandered wide,

Seen the Hudson and the Clyde,

I've wondered by Loch Lomond side,

But I dearly lou the Borders.

 

Chorus

When I die, bury me low

Where I can hear the bonny Tweed flow,

A sweeter place I’ll never know,

Than the rolling hills o’ the Borders.

 

Oft dae I hae mind the day

Wi my love I strolled by the Tay,

But all its beauty fades away,

Amang the hills o the Borders.

 

Chorus

 

There's a certain peace of mind

Bonnie lassies there you’ll find

Men sae sturdy and sae kind,

Amang the hills o the Borders.

 

Chorus

 

I've travelled far, I’ve wandered wide,

Seen the Hudson and the Clyde,

I've wondered by Loch Lomond side,

But I dearly lou the Borders.

 

Chorus
