Okay this is a beautiful lullaby that is thought to be written by Matt McGinn. 
I've never heard a recording of this but I picked it up at a session in southern 
Scotland, and completely fell in love with the song. 
This is just how I play it, start singing on a G.
I pick it all the way through, as the song naturally lends itself to a gentle accompaniment. 

    Coorie [C] doon, Coorie doon, Coorie [F] Doon, my darling,
    [G] Coorie doon the [C] day.
    Coorie [C] doon, Coorie doon, Coorie [F] Doon, my darling,
    [G] Coorie doon the [C] day.

Lie [C] doon, my dear, and [F] in your ear,
To [C] help you close your [G] eye,
I'll [Am] sing a song, a [F] slumber [Am] song,
A [G] miner's lulla [C] by.
Your daddy's doon the mine, my darling,
Doon in the Curbly Main,
Your daddy's howkin' coal, my darling,
For his ain wee wean.
There's darkness doon the mine my darling,
Darkness, dust and damp,
But we must have oor heat, oor light,
Oor fire and our lamp.
Your daddy coories doon, my darling,
Doon in a three foot seam,
So you can coorie doon my darling,
Coorie doon and dream.
