Subject: Chord Req: Hot Stuff
From: GUEST,Justin, London.

Does anybody know the guitar chord arrangement to 'Hot Stuff'below?

Come, each death-doing dog that dares venture his neck,
Come, follow the hero that goes to Quebec;
Jump aboard of the transports, and loose every sail,
Pay your debts at the tavern by giving leg-bail;
And ye that love fighting shall soon have enough;
Wolfe commands us, my boys, we shall give them Hot Stuff.

Up the River St. Lawrence our troops shall advance,
To the Grenadier's March we will teach them to dance.
Cape Breton we've taken and next we will try
At the capital to give them another black eye.
Vaudreuil, 'tis in vain you pretend to look gruff,
Those are coming who know how to give you Hot Stuff.

With powder in his periwig, and snuff in his nose,
Monsieur will run down our descent to oppose;
And the Indians will come, but the Light Infantry
Will soon compel them to betake to a tree.
From such rascals as these may we fear a rebuff?
Advance, grenadiers, and let fly your Hot Stuff!

When the Forty-seventh Regiment is dashing ashore,
When bullets are whistling and cannon do roar,
Says Montcalm, "Those are Shirley's, I know their lapels."
"You lie," says Ned Botwood, "We are of Lascelles!
Though our clothing is changed, yet we scorn a powder-puff;
So at you, ye bitches, here's give you Hot Stuff."

With Monkton and Townsend, those brave brigadiers,
I think we shall soon have the town 'bout their ears,
And when we have done with the mortars and guns,
If you please, Madam Abbess, a word with your nuns.
Each soldier shall enter the convent in buff
And then, never fear, we will give them Hot Stuff.

Apparently it is the same tune as 'Lilies of France'? but I cannot seem to find that either.

Many Thanks.

Did you try Roy Palmer's collection, "The Rambling Soldier"? My copy is temporarily out of reach but I'm fairly sure the lyrics and music are in that. This is a collection of songs and extracts from various military memoirs of the 18th/19thC.

Interesting. I have just sent off for a copy of this book from that famous online emporium of books and other things.
I hope that it's not printed in notation as sadly I only can read chord letters! :(

- thank you none the less 12-stringer!

I have found the chords! I have listed them below for others.

Come follow the hero that goes to Quebec
A7       D                   E7                A      D       E7
Jump aboard of the transports and loose every sail

And ye that love fighting shall soon have enough:
                                           A                     D            E7    A
Wolfe commands us, my boys, we shall give them hot stuff


Up the River St Lawrence our troops shall advance

To The Grenadiers' March we will teach them to dance

Cape Breton we've taken and next we will try

At their capital to give them another black eye

Vaudreuil, 'tis in vain you pretend to look gruff:

Those are coming who know how to give you hot stuff


With powder in his periwig and snuff in his nose

Monsieur will run down our descent to oppose

And the Indians will come but the Light Infantry

Will soon oblige them to betake to a tree

From such rascals as these may we fear a rebuff?

Advance, grenadiers, and let fly your hot stuff


When the forty-seventh regiment is dashing ashore

While bullets are whistling and cannon do roar

Says Montcalm, 'Those are Shirley's, I know the lapels'

'You lie,' says Ned Botwood, 'we belong to Lascelles.

Though our clothing is changed, yet we scorn a powder-puff

So at you, ye bastards, here's give you hot stuff'

With Monckton and Townshend, those brave brigadiers

I think we shall soon have the town 'bout their ears;

And when we have done with the mortars and guns:

'If you please, Madam Abbess, a word with your nuns'

Each soldier shall enter the convent in buff

And then, never fear, we will give them hot stuff.
