Massacre Of Glencoe

The Corries

Tom: G
G C G Oh, cruel is the snow that sweeps Glencoe, G D and covers the grave o' Donald. G C G And cruel was the foe that raped Glencoe, C D G and murdered the house o' MacDonald.
G D G 1. They came in the blizzard, we offered them heat, D G D a roof o'er their heads, dry shoes for their feet. G D G Em We wined them and dined them, they ate of our meat, C D G and they slept in the house o' MacDonald.
G C G Oh, cruel is the snow that sweeps Glencoe, G D and covers the grave o' Donald. G C G And cruel was the foe that raped Glencoe, C D G and murdered the house o' MacDonald.
G D G 2. They came from Fort William with murder in mind, D G D the Campbell's had orders, King William had signed : G D G Em Put all to the sword, these words underlined, C D G and leave none alive called MacDonald.
G C G Oh, cruel is the snow that sweeps Glencoe, G D and covers the grave o' Donald. G C G And cruel was the foe that raped Glencoe, C D G and murdered the house o' MacDonald.
G D G 3. They came in the night when the men were asleep, D G D this band of Argyles, through snow soft and deep. G D G Em Like murdering foxes, among helpless sheep, C D G they slaughtered the house o' MacDonald.
G C G Oh, cruel is the snow that sweeps Glencoe, G D and covers the grave o' Donald. G C G And cruel was the foe that raped Glencoe, C D G and murdered the house o' MacDonald.
G D G 4. Some died in their beds at the hands of the foe, D G D some fled in the night, and were lost in the snow. G D G Em Some lived to accuse him, that struck the first blow C D G but gone was the house of MacDonald
G C G Oh, cruel is the snow that sweeps Glencoe, G D and covers the grave o' Donald. G C G And cruel was the foe that raped Glencoe, C D G and murdered the house o' MacDonald.
