[Verse 1]
G                                      C
I'll tell it to you as they told it to me
       G                    Am       D
By the glow of the campfire burning
       G                           Bm          C
By the banks of the water where we sported and played
     G                      D    G
They once faced the fury of battle

[Chorus]
G                                                 C
And up through the Champlain came the Highland Brigade
    G                                          D
The pipes and the drummers played Scotland the Brave
    G                         Bm         C
But when they sailed home the piper's refrain
    G        C        D    G
Was "O, how cruel the volley"

[Verse 2]
G                                   C
To one Duncan Campbell it came in a dream
     G                                     Am    D
That he'd meet his fate where he never had been;
          G                        Bm          C
Where the blue waters roll and the stickerbush tear,
     G                          D           G
It's "Travel well, Duncan, I'll wait on you there.

[Verse 3]
G                                                  C
"For the French and the Indian have challenged our King."
      G                               Am        D
(To a soldier like Duncan, no need to explain.)
      G                Bm            C
"'Tis many a time I've travelled the waves
   G                   D  G
To find my fate in the fire."

[Chorus]
G                                                 C
And up through the Champlain came the Highland Brigade
    G                                          D
The pipes and the drummers played Scotland the Brave
    G                         Bm         C
But when they sailed home the piper's refrain
    G        C        D    G
Was "O, how cruel the volley"

[Verse 4]
G                                               C
From Fort William Henry their boats have shoved off
       G                           Am       D
To the North of Lake George in the morning;
       G                        Bm     C
To the place the Frenchmen call Carillon,
        G              D   G
And the Indians: Ticonderoga.

[Verse 5]
G                                             C
And the word struck Duncan like a thunderbolt there;
G                    Am       D
Everyone knew of the warning.
     G                 Bm          C
"So, play us a tune to remember me by,
      G                    D     G
For tomorrow I'll not be returning."

[Chorus]
G                                                 C
And up through the Champlain came the Highland Brigade
    G                                          D
The pipes and the drummers played Scotland the Brave
    G                         Bm         C
But when they sailed home the piper's refrain
    G        C        D    G
Was "O, how cruel the volley"

[Verse 6]
G                                           C
When the gunpowder flashed, the Highlanders died,
G                           Am    D
Never again to walk the hillside.
       G                        Bm          C
In the wilderness green, in the sun and the rain,
     G                      D     G
It's here they're forever remaining.

[Verse 7]
G                                          C
And I've told it to you as they told it to me,
   G                                       Am    D
Of one Duncan Campbell and the Highland Brigade.
          G                        Bm           C
Where the campfire crackles in the summertime's wane,
            G                           D          G
Through the mist on the water comes the piper's refrain.

[Chorus]
G                                                 C
And up through the Champlain came the Highland Brigade
    G                                          D
The pipes and the drummers played Scotland the Brave
    G                         Bm         C
But when they sailed home the piper's refrain
    G        C        D    G
Was "O, how cruel the volley"
