First tab on here, from watching online - couldn't find it properly transcribed anywhere. There's 
a bit of feeling to the timing, if you know the song. A beautiful ode to Glasgow by Michael Marra,
made famous by Hue and Cry.Feel free to update/improve, and enjoy!

The E tends to be an E with a quick flicker to an A, then back again, as played on the piano part to 
this song.

E                       A       B
In the second city of the Empire
A                    B                  E
Mother Glasgow watches all her weans
E                               A B
Trying hard to feed her little starlings
F#m                     B               E
Unconsciously she clips their little wings

Verse 2 as above

E                               A               B
Among the flightless birds and sightless starlings
A                       B               E
Father Glasgow knows his starlings well
E                               A       B
He wont make his own way up to heaven
F#m                     B               E
By waltzing all his charges in to h***

A                       B       E
Mother Glasgow's succour is perpetual
E                       B
Nestling the Billy and the Tim
E                                    A    B
I dreamt I took a dander with St. Mungo
A                   B                   E       
To try to catch a fish that couldnae swim

And the tree
And the fish
And the bird
And the bell...

A       B F#m B E
Let Glasgow Flourish!
