MacPherson's Rant

(F)                  (C)
Fareweel ye dungeons dark and strang

(F)                      (Bb) 
Fareweel, Fareweel tae thee,

(F)                   (C7)
MacPherson's life will no' be lang.

(Dmin)       (Bb)  (C7)
On yonder gallows tree.


        (F)              (C)               (F)
Sae rantingly and sae wantonly and sae dauntingly gaed

      (F)                 (C)       (Dmin)
He Played a tune and he danced aroun' below the

   (Bb)   (C7)
gallows tree.

It was by a woman's treacherous hand
 That I was condemned to dee
 Beneath a ledge at a window she stood
 And a blanket she threw o'er me.


Well the laird o' Grant, that highlan' sa'nt
 That first laid hands on me
 He played the cause on Peter Broon
 To let Macpherson dee.


Untie these bands from off my hands
 And gie to me my sword
 There's nae a man in a' Scotland
 But I'll brave him at a word.


There's some come here to see me hanged
 And some to buy my fiddle
 But before that I do part wi' her
 I'll brak her thro' the middle.


He took the fiddle into both his hands
 And he broke it o'er a stone
 Says there's nae other hand shall play on thee
 When I am dead and gone.


O, little did my mother think
 When she first cradled me
 That I would turn a rovin' boy
 And die on the gallows tree.


The reprive was comin' o'er the brig o' Banff
 To let Macpherson free
 But they pit the clock a quarter afore
 And hanged him to a tree.

Lack of formatting as well (chords do not continue to the end of the song), but mainly the chords are almost entirely incorrect.

The chords are the same to the end. Post the corrected version if you consider the chords wrong. I did this from the Scocha version and put it a key to suit my voice.
