CAPO III

[Verse 1]
C                   F
   They came in the night
         C
When the men were asleep
     G 
This band O' Argyles
        C             G
Through snow soft and deep
     C         F   
Like murdering foxes
  C
A-mong helpless sheep
     F               G
They slaughtered the house of
    C
Mac-Donald


[Chorus]
  C           
O Cruel is the snow
     F           C
That sweeps Glen-coe
    C                  G
And covers the grave O Donald
    C     
And cruel was the foe
     F          C
That raped Glen-coe
    F            G
And murdered the house of
    C
Mac-Donald


[Verse 2]
     C         F
They came in a blizzard
   C
We offered them heat
  G 
A roof o'er their heads
    C               G
Dry shoes for their feet
   C              F
We wined them and dined them
     C
They ate of our meat
         F            G
And they slept in the house of
    C
Mac-Donald


[Chorus]
  C           
O Cruel is the snow
     F           C
That sweeps Glen-coe
    C                  G
And covers the grave O Donald
    C     
And cruel was the foe
     F          C
That raped Glen-coe
    F            G
And murdered the house of
    C
Mac-Donald


[Verse 3]
     C              F
They came from Fort William
    C              
Wi' murder in mind
    G
The Campbells had orders
     C           G
King William had signed
    C          F
Put all to the sword
      C
These words were underlined
    F            G
And leave none a-live called
    C
Mac-Donald


[Verse 4]
     C             F
Some died in their beds
       C
At the hand of the foe
     G
Some fled in the night
    C                G
And were lost in the snow
     C           F
Some lived to ac-cuse him
     C
That struck the first blow
    F            G
But gone was the house of
   C
Mac-Donald


[Chorus]
  C           
O Cruel is the snow
     F           C
That sweeps Glen-coe
    C                  G
And covers the grave O Donald
    C     
And cruel was the foe
     F          C
That raped Glen-coe
    F            G
And murdered the house of
    C
Mac-Donald
