GUEST,Kenny Chords Req: The Valley of Strathmore (A M Stewart) (23) RE: Chords Req: The Valley of Strathmore (A M Stewart) 17 Jul 19


D            G       D
By the clear and the winding streams,
       G               A
In the valley of Strathmore,
         D       G      D
Where my love and I have been,
            G            A
Where we'll wander never more,
       Bm         A7             G
But If time was a thing man could buy,
                            A
All the money that I have in store,
    D            G          D
I'd give for one day by her side,
       G               A
In the valley of Strathmore.

The above are the chords and lyrics to the first verse and chorus taken directly from "The Andy M. Stewart Song Book" - pg8.
There are a few differences to what "Skarpi" has above.

Other minor corrections from the DT version above I've put in capitals below :

By the clear and the winding streams
In the valley of Strathmore
Where my love and I have been
Where we'll wander never more

    But if time was a thing man could buy
    All the money that I have in store
    I'D give for one day by her side
    In the valley of Strathmore

From the glen of the golden and green
I left for a land far away
Where sadness has never been seen
Aye, and joy only costs a day's pay

In Strathmore there's a long working day
For a man with his hands on the PLOO
But it's work I'd be happy TAE DAE
If at night I were LYIN' WI' you

As I take a long DRAUGHT from my glass
Oh, I'm drinking alone here again
And I try not to think O' my lass
For the old days will ne'er come again
