G             C
Behold I am a soldier bold

Em               C
a braver warrior never was seen
G              D         G
fae Inverness tae Gretna green
C
when I was young my father said 
G                 D

Em                 C

G                      D     G
so went and joined the forty twa

[Chorus]

G                  C
The wind may blaw ,the cock may craw
G                         D
the rain may rain and the snaw may snaw 
Em                    C
but ye`winna frichten Jock Mcgraw
G                            D     G

G                   C
the sergent when he listed me
G                   D
he winked his ee an then say`s he
Em                  C
a man like you sae stout and tall
G                       D      G
can ne`r be killed by a cannonball
C
the captain then when he cam roond
G                     D
and looked me up and looked me doon
Em                           C
then turnin tae the sergeant awa ye scamp
G                            D      G
ye`ve lested the bleachfield oot on tramp

Em                    C
but ye`winna frichten Jock Mcgraw
G                            D     G

[Verse 3]
G                 C
at oor last fecht across the sea
G              D
the general he sends efter me
Em                     C
when I get there wi my big gun
G                     D      G
the battle of course it was won
C
the enemy aw run awa
G                       D
they were feert at Jock McGraw
Em                 C                 
a man like me sae tall and neat
G                   D         G
ye ken yersel could never be beat

G                    D        G
and Jock McGraw came marching last
C               
the royal pairty grabbed their sticks
G                  D
and all began tae stretch their necks
Em                             C
cries the king to the colonel upon my soul
G                     D         G
I took thet man for a telegraph pole

[Chorus]

G                  C
The wind may blaw ,the cock may craw
G                         D
the rain may rain and the snaw may snaw 
EM                    C
but ye`winna frichten Jock Mcgraw
G                            D     G
