This song comes from the mostly excellent 2007 album Living With The Living. It's my 
tab as well, so forgive me if it sucks and move on.


Riff:
e--------------------------|
B-----3-----3-----3-----3--|
G---0-----0-----0-----0----|
D-2-----0------------------|
A-------------3------------|
E-------------------3------|

Play the riff 3 times and then
Variation:

Em                               C
Nine years down the road and I remember it still,

G                             Em
Standing on the corner back in Govanhill -

Em                        C
Nine days out from home, feeling no pain,

G                              Em
The northern city sun breaking through the rain;

Em                          C      G
That warmthless sun barely shinin' on

[Riff]x4 and then the [Variation]
Me and yooooouuuu and a bottle of Buckie
Me and you-hooooo and a bottle of Buckie

Em                                C
Nine years come and gone since I left you at home

          G                            Em
And this restless soul of mine has me startin' to roam,

Em                                 C
But the first time I stood by the banks of the Clyde,

       G                            Em
I was so glad to have you standing back by my side.

Em                        C     G
So proud of what we were doing, oh

[Riff]x8 and then the [Variation]
Me and yooooouuuu and a bottle of Buckie
Me and you-hooooo and a bottle of Buckie
Me and yououooooo and a bottle of Buckie
Me and you-hooooo and a bottle of Buckie

       C                        G
Well I knew by the dew in your starry eyes,

           Em                              C
It was the day we both had studied for for all of our lives,

         C                       G
Whether bold missionaries, or a Children's Crusade,

Em                         C
No fear, pioneers, we were on our way,

           C                            G
And there never were nothin' that could get in our way (oh!)


Tin whistle solo at 1:32

         Em                                  C
Then the Neds with their knuckles and their Burberry scarves,

            G                          Em
They said, "How'd you Jersey boys ever make it this far?"

         Em                           C
But you jumped in between and said, "Listen, my son:"

        G                                          Em! Em!
Said, "You don't know nothin' about-a where we're from,

Em                             c        G
You don't know nothin' about-a why it's now


[Riff]x8
Me and yooooouuuu and a bottle of Buckie
Me and you-hooooo and a bottle of Buckie
Me and yououooooo and a bottle of Buckie
Me and you-hooooo and a bottle of Buckie (Hey!)

Now play the Riff some more, but this time start strumming them, as in:

  A7sus4  G-ish   Cadd9   G
e-3-------3-------3-------3------|
B-3-------3-------3-------3------|
G-0-------0-------0-------0------|
D-2-------0-------2-------0------|
A-----------------3-------2------|
E-------------------------3------|

Of course the chords aren't exact, but that's what I play and it sounds fine. Do it over the last verse:

Three times I've been back in my wandering ways.
Last time it was July, during Marching Days,
When someone said to run from that bitter parade,
But I knew what you would do and I decided to stay;
And I knew no one ever got the better of (the) me and yoooouuuuu

End with 4x[Riff] and 1x[Variation]


Enjoy it. I do.

Good work, but I think there's an Am in the verse. Em-C-Am-G. Just what I'm hearing

oh shit, you're right. Sorry! Am is the relative minor of C and Em is the relative for G so I guess I got the sounds mostly right and didn't think about how a minor resolution made no musical sense at all
