Massacre Of Glencoe Chords
Massacre of Glencoe

CHORUS 
      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 


Verse 1 
  
      G                   D                     G 
They came through the blizzard, we offered them heat 
       D                    G                   D 
 A roof o'wer their heads, dry shoes for their feet. 
        G            D               G 
  We wined them and dined them, they ate of our meat 
       C                D         G 
  And slept in the house O' MacDonald  

CHORUS 
      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 
They came from Fort William with murder mind 
      D                            G           D 
The Campbell's had orders, King William had signed 
     G           D                     G 
Put all to the sword, these words underlined 
     C                     D       G 
And leave none alive called MacDonald 
    
CHORUS 
      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 
They came in the night when the men were asleep 
      D                        G             D 
That band of Argyles, through snow soft and deep. 
       G        D        G 
Like murdering foxes, amongst  helpless sheep 
       C                  D         G 
They slaughtered the house O'MacDonald  
 
CHORUS 
      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 
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 
Some lived to accuse him, that struck the first blow 
      C                  D       G 
But gone was the house of MacDonald 
 
CHORUS 
      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
