Scalliwag by Gaelic Storm

Dm C  6x

Dm
Come away come away with the traveling show
C
come away with the raggle taggle gypsy oh!
Dm
We'll raggle-taggle here we'll raggle-taggle there, 
C
raggle up and down taggle everywhere.

Dm
From the North from the South from the East from the West, 
C
well the sky is our roof and the road is our rest.
Dm
No one to say 'yes', no one to say 'no'.
C
Run free with the raggle-taggle gypsy oh!

Dm  C  Dm  C
 
Dm
They locked you in a tower and threw away the key 
C
but this tower's no match for a wag like me
Dm
I'll be sneaking through your gate I'll be peaking round the corner 
C
well I've come to take your daughter, don't you say I didn't warn ya.

Dm
I'll be bringing you a fiddle I'll be singing you a song 
C
we'll fiddle, sing, sing, fiddle all day long.
Dm
In the halls and the walls they will her us sing and say 
C
"whack fol the diddle diddle die diddle day"


Chorus:
F                     Bb                        F                    C
Come on and wade, way out into the water with me, we're drowning on dry land. 
F                    Bb                        C  C#                      Dm
Come on and wade way out into the water with me...   Jump in and take my hand.

Dm
I'll be rapping at your window I'll be knocking at your door 
C
I'll be tip tippy tapping, tippy tapping on the floor
Dm
With me fine silk britches and a feather in me hat 
C
If I run into your father then I'll stop and have a chat!

Dm
Cutting through your garden on the way to rendezvous 
C
and the owls in the trees are hooting "who are you?"
Dm
And the mice and the cats and the spiders and the bats 
C
we're dancing 'round the kitchen like a pack of acrobats

Dm
Run away, Run away with the traveling show 
C
Run away with the rambling gypsy oh!
Dm
Run away, Run away with the traveling show 
C
Run away with the rambling gypsy oh!


Chorus:
F                     Bb                        F                    C
Come on and wade, way out into the water with me, we're drowning on dry land. 
F                    Bb                        C  C#                      Dm
Come on and wade way out into the water with me...   Jump in and take my hand.


Violin solo
Dm C Dm C Dm C Dm C Dm C Bb C* Dm C Bb C*

*play like a B chord on the 3rd fret


Dm
A roving and a running and a riding on the sea 
C
and everywhere we go as happy as can be
Dm
All the mountains and the valleys and the rivers and the streams, 
C
all the lovely places that you've seen in your dreams

Dm
I'll give you the heavens, the stars in the sky, 
C
every wooded creature, every bird and butterfly
Bb
I've never had a fortune not a penny will you find 
          C*
you're my one and only treasure, you can leave all the rest behind.


F                     Bb                        F                    C
Come on and wade, way out into the water with me, we're drowning on dry land. 
F                    Bb                        C 
Come on and wade way out into the water with me...  (repeat until end)

This is really good. Pretty sure they play most of those as barre chords but I do like mixing the opens and the barres when I play acoustic without any accompaniment. Also, the line is "you're my only treasure, you can..."
