Like played by The Irish Rovers here: https://youtu.be/_ex9gh8yv2I

[Chorus]
Dm                                         F
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie
C
Rolling with a wee girl underneath the tree
   Dm                             F
A bumbee stung me well above the knee
Am                           Dm               C Am   Dm
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie

[Verse]
Dm                                 F
As I went out roving on a summer's day
C
I spyed a bonnie lassie strolling on the brae
Dm                                                F
She was picking wild berries and I offered her a hand
Am                                    Dm          C Am   Dm 
Saying maybe I can help you fill your wee tin can

[Chorus]
Dm                                         F
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie
C
Rolling with a wee girl underneath the tree
   Dm                             F
A bumbee stung me well above the knee
Am                           Dm               C Am   Dm
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie

[Verse]
Dm                                               F
Says I me bonnie lassie, are ya gonna spend the day
C
Up amongst the heather where the lads and lassies play?
Dm                                                            F
They're hugging and they're kissing and they're making fancy free
Am                                Dm                C Am   Dm 
Among the blooming heather on the hill o' Bennachie

[Chorus]
Dm                                         F
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie
C
Rolling with a wee girl underneath the tree
   Dm                             F
A bumbee stung me well above the knee
Am                           Dm               C Am   Dm  
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie

[Verse]
Dm                                         F
We sat down together and I held her in me arms
C
I hugged her and I kissed her taken by her charms
Dm                                       F
Then I took out me fiddle and I fiddled merrily
Am                                Dm                C Am   Dm  
Among the blooming heather at the hill o' Bennachie

[Chorus]
Dm                                         F
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie
C
Rolling with a wee girl underneath the tree
   Dm                             F
A bumbee stung me well above the knee
Am                           Dm               C Am   Dm  
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie

[Verse]
Dm                                         F
Come all you bonnie lassies and take my advice
C
Never let a soldier laddie kiss you more than twice
Dm                                                     F
For all the time he's kissing you he's thinking out a plan
Am                               Dm          C Am   Dm  
To get a wee bit rattle at your ould tin can

[Chorus]
Dm                                         F
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie
C
Rolling with a wee girl underneath the tree
   Dm                             F
A bumbee stung me well above the knee
Am                           Dm               C Am   Dm 
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie

Dm                                         F
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie
C
Rolling with a wee girl underneath the tree
   Dm                             F
A bumbee stung me well above the knee
Am                           Dm               C Am   Dm
Up among the heather at the hill o' Bennachie
