[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
1. They came in the blizzard, we offered them heat,
         D                    G                   D
    a roof o'er their heads, dry shoes for their feet.
         G            D             G              Em
    We wined them and dined them, they ate of our meat,
               C            D        G
    and they 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
2. They came from Fort William with murder in mind,
          D                   G               D
   the Campbell's had orders, King William had signed :
          G            D             G             Em
    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
3. They came in the night when the men were asleep,
         D                G                    D
    this band of Argyles, through snow soft and deep.
           G        D       G             Em
    Like murdering foxes, among 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
4. 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                Em
    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.
