Jock Stewart (aka: A Man You Donít Meet Every Day) --- Trad.



Oh my [G]name is Jock [D]Stewart; I'm a [G]canny gaun [C]man
And a [G]roving young [D]fellow I've [G]been [D]
Iíve [G]traveled this [D]world for [G]many a [C]year
And [G]manyís the [D]places Iíve [G]seen [D]

    So be [G]easy and [D]free when you're [G]drinking with [C]me
    I'm a [G]man you don't [D]meet every [G]day [D]

I have [G]acres of [D]land; I have [G]men at com-[C]mand
I have [G]always a [D]shilling to [G]spare [D]
Well I [G]took out my [D]gun; with my [G]dog I did [C]shoot
All [G]down in the [D]county Kil-[G]dare [D]

    So be [G]easy and [D]free when you're [G]drinking with [C]me
    I'm a [G]man you don't [D]meet every [G]day [D]

I'm a [G]piper by [D]trade, and a [G]roving young [C]blade
And [G]many a [D]tune I do [G]play [D]
So come [G]fill up your [D]glasses with [G]brandy and [C]wine
What-[G]ever the [D]cost I will [G]pay [D]
Let us [G]catch well the [D]hours, and the [G]minutes that [C]fly
And we'll [G]share them to-[D]gether this [G]day [D]

    So be [G]easy and [D]free when you're [G]drinking with [C]me
    I'm a [G]man you don't [D]meet every [G]day [D]
    So be [G]easy and [D]free when you're [G]drinking with [C]me
    I'm a [G]man you don't [D]meet every [G]day
