[Intro]
G  C  G  G  
C  Am  Em  G 
C  D  G  C  
D  G


[Verse]
G                      C             G
Tam he woke tae find a shadow by the bed,
G                               C     Am       Em
Blamed it on the vapors still beleaguerin' his head,
C                                    G                    D 
Scrubbed his chops & dragged an oily bug rake through his hair,
    G                                   C    D        G
And wiped the mirror tae find the bogey mimickin' his stare,
   G                                  C              G
He boilt the jug tae quench his mug & baked a lump o' toast,
G                           C        Am    Em
Hid behind the racin' pages from the hoary ghost,
    C                   G                D
oh "Awfy ghostie if yer here tae make me dead,
G                                 C         D     G
Spare me life & bother me wife or Mother-in-law instead!"


[Chorus]
G                     C                G
"Tam McCorty I'm not here to make you cry,
  G                                 C       Am     Em
I know you’re just a broken man wi' longing in his eye,
     G                        C                   D
I'll say my say & go my way a-carving through the rye,
G                    C       D    G   C   D   G
Tam McCorty, it’s not your day to die."


[Verse]
        G                                   C            G
"By the way ye've hung yer tools o' trade & mantle I can tell,
G                                     C      Am    Em
Ye will nae leave until ye've seen me safely intae hell,
   C                                     G              D
So follow me down the 'Horse & Crown' of liquor I'm sae fond,
     G                                  C       D      G
I'll drink meself tae death & haunt the witches from beyond." 


[Chorus]
G                     C                G
"Tam McCorty I'm not here to make you cry,
  G                                 C       Am     Em
I know you’re just a broken man wi' longing in his eye,
     G                        C                   D
I'll say my say & go my way a-carving through the rye,
G                    C       D    G   C   D   G
Tam McCorty, it’s not your day to die."


[Verse]
     G                            C                 G
They drank to fallen heroes, they spat & cursed the Queen,
     G                                C      Am   Em
They argued o'er 'Black Caviar' - The finest ever seen?
     C                                   G               D
They smoked cigars & played at cards for pots o' Gilbeys Gin,
G                               C           D          G
Roarin' as the fiery liqour, it spilled all down their chin. 


[Chorus]
G                     C                G
"Tam McCorty I'm not here to make you cry,
  G                                 C       Am     Em
I know you’re just a broken man wi' longing in his eye,
     G                        C                   D
I'll say my say & go my way a-carving through the rye,
G                    C       D    G   C   D   G
Tam McCorty, it’s not your day to die."


[Verse]
     G                                 C                G
They staggered home along the tracks & pissed against a post,
    G                             C             Am     Em
The dogs a' barkin' madly, all as though they'd seen a ghost,
    C                               G              D
"Oh take me now I beg you, pick yer mark & pick it well,
    G                                 C        D         G
I'm tired o' livin' & there I think I hear the hounds o' HELL!"


[Chorus]
G                     C                G
"Tam McCorty I'm not here to make you cry,
  G                                 C       Am     Em
I know you’re just a broken man wi' longing in his eye,
     G                        C                   D
I'll say my say & go my way a-carving through the rye,
G                    C       D    G   C   D   G
Tam McCorty, it’s not your day to die."


[Verse]
      G                             C           G
Death threw his cloak across him where he passed out in his chair,
    G     
And whispered in a frosty tone directly in his ear,
C                                 G                D
"Best you learn to live again, forgive yerself yer past,
    G              
For when you see me next Tam, it'll be your last." 
 

[Chorus]
G                     C                G
"Tam McCorty I'm not here to make you cry,
  G                                 C       Am     Em
I know you’re just a broken man wi' longing in his eye,
     G                        C                   D
I'll say my say & go my way a-carving through the rye,
G                    C        D      G 
Tam McCorty, it’s not your day to die."
G                     C                G
"Tam McCorty I'm not here to make you cry,
  G                                 C       Am     Em
I know you’re just a broken man wi' longing in his eye,
     G                        C                   D
I'll say my say & go my way a-carving through the rye,
G                    C        D      G 
Tam McCorty, it’s not your day to die."
G                    C        D      G 
Tam McCorty, it’s not your day to die."
G                    C        D      G 
Tam McCorty, it’s not your day to die."
