MacPherson’s Rant

[Verse 1]
G                         D
Fare ye weel ye dark and lonely hills,
G         C           D
Far away beneath the sky.
G                     D
Macpherson's time will no be long
C           G      D
on yonder gallows tree.


[Chorus]
G               D
Sae rantinly, sae wantonly,
G                 C
Sae dantinly gaed he.
G                       D
He played a tune, an' he danced it aroon
C              G        D
in a blow the gallows tree


[Verse 2]
    G               D       
It was by a woman's treacherous hand,
     G       C            D
That I was condemned tae dee.
G                   D       
Upon a ledge on a window she stood,
C                  G      D
And a blanket she threw ower me.


[Chorus]
G               D
Sae rantinly, sae wantonly,
G                 C
Sae dantinly gaed he.
G                       D
He played a tune, an' he danced it aroon
C              G        D
in a blow the gallows tree


[Verse 3]
       G                     D 
For there's some come here tae see me die,
     G       C        D
An' some tae buy my fiddle
G                      D
But before that I do part wi' her,
 C              G            D
I'll break her through the middle


[Chorus]
G               D
Sae rantinly, sae wantonly,
G                 C
Sae dantinly gaed he.
G                       D
He played a tune, an' he danced it aroon
C              G        D
in a blow the gallows tree


[Verse 4]
    G                  D 
He took his fiddle in tae both o' his hands
  G             C        D
An he break it ower a stane.
G                       D
Says no anither shall play on thee,
 C         G        D
When I am dead an' gone.


[Chorus]
G               D
Sae rantinly, sae wantonly,
G                 C
Sae dantinly gaed he.
G                       D
He played a tune, an' he danced it aroon
C              G        D
in a blow the gallows tree


[Verse 5]
       G                   D 
The reprieve was comin' ower the Brig o' Banff,
  G        C        D
Tae set Macpherson free.
 G                       D
But they pit the clock a quarter to four
C           G             D
An they hanged him tae the tree.


[Chorus]
G               D
Sae rantinly, sae wantonly,
G                 C
Sae dantinly gaed he.
G                       D
He played a tune, an' he danced it aroon
C              G        D
in a blow the gallows tree
