Intro:

F#m    D  A
F#m    D  E


Verse 1: 

    F#m                                    A
The drinking dens are spilling out and staggering in the square
        D                                      A              E
There`s lads and lassies falling about and a crackling in the air
F#m                                  A
Down around the dungeon doors, the shelters and the queues 
D                           A               E         
Everybody`s looking for somebody`s arms to fall into this way...

                               
Chorus 1: 
                F#m   D   A
It`s what it is
                F#m   D   E
It`s what it is now


Verse 2: 

        F#m                                            A
There`s frost on the graves and the monuments but the taverns are warm in town
D                               A               E
People curse the government and shovel hot food down
F#m                              A 
Lights are out in city hall, the castle and the keep
F#m                              A           E
Moon shines down upon it all the legless and asleep


Pre-Chorus 1:

D                                 A
Cold on the tollgate where the wagons creeping through
D                           A          E
Cold on the tollgate, god knows what I can do with you, its what it is...


Chorus 2: 
                F#m   D   A
It`s what it is
                F#m   D   E
It`s what it is now


Verse 3: 

F#m                                         A
The garnison sleeps in the citadel with the ghosts and the ancient stones
F#m                               A       E
High on the parapet the scottish pipers stands alone
F#m                             A
High on the wind the highland drums begin to roll
F#m                              A                E
And something from the past just comes and stares into my soul


Pre-Chorus 2:

D                             A
Cold on the tollgate where the caledonian blues
D                          A                  E
Cold on the tollgate, god knows what I can do with you, its what it is


Chorus 3: 
                F#m   D   A
It`s what it is
                F#m   D   E
It`s what it is now
                F#m   D   A
It`s what it is
                F#m   D   E
It`s what it is now


[Instrumental break, verse and chorus]


Verse 4:
          F#m                                         A
There’s a chink of light as a burning wick, there’s a lantern in the tower
F#m                                              A                  E
Wee Willie Winkie with the candle sticks still writing songs in the wee wee hours
   F#m                                  A
On Charlotte Street they take a walking stick from my hotel
F#m                                 A                E
The ghost of Dirty Dick is still in search of Little Nell, its what it is...


Chorus 4: 
                F#m   D   A
It`s what it is
                F#m   D   E
It`s what it is now
                F#m   D   A
It`s what it is
                F#m   D   E
It`s what it is now...
