Back Of The Moon - The Baron Of Brackley

G   C   G   D7 C  (2x)

[Verse 1]
     G                      Em
Doon Deeside cam Inveray, a-whistlin' an' playin'
    G                                  C          D7
An' he cam by Brackley's yetts ere the day was dawin'
     C             G             C          D7
"Oh, are ye there, Brackley, and are ye within?
    C                 G                       C               D7
Oor shairp swords are at yer yetts, an' we'll gaur your bluid spin"

[Verse 2]
      G                     Em
"Rise up, Betsy Gordon, an' gie me my gun
    G                                  C          D7
For though I gang oot, love, sure I'll never come in
     C           G          C             D7
Come kiss me, my Betsy, nor think I'm tae blame
    C            G           C             D7
For though I hae ae man, I'm sure they hae ten"

[Verse 3]
     G                        Em
When Brackley was mounted and rade on his horse
  G                   C           D7
A bonnier baron ne'er rade o'er a course
    C         G           C            D7
Twa gallanter Gordons did never swords draw
     C                G            C           D7
But against three-and-thirty, fa's me, whit is twa?

[Verse 4]
          G                                 Em
Wi' their dirks and their broadswords, they did him surroun'
    G                              C        D7
And they killed bonny Brackley wi' mony's a woun'
         C           G           C            D7
Frae the heid o' the Dee tae the banks o' the Spey
    C             G             C       D7
The Gordons shall mourn him and ban Inveray

G   C   G   D7 C  (2x)

[Verse 5]
    G                               Em
Oh, cam ye by Brackley's yetts, an' cam ye by here?
    G                 C          D7
An' saw ye his lady a-rivin' her hair?
        C        G                    C        D7
Oh, an' I cam by Brackley's yetts an' I cam by here
      C            G             C           D7
An' I saw his fair lady, she wis makin' guid cheer

[Verse 6]
        G                       Em
She was rantin' an' dancin' an' singin' wi' joy
    G                                  C         D7
An' vowin' that verra nicht, she would feast Inveray
            C                G               C            D7
Well, she's laughed wi' him, danced wi' him, welcomed him in
        C            G                C               D7
She was kind tae the murderer wha had slayed her guid man

[Verse 7]
        G                     Em
Through hedges an' ditches ye canna be sure
    G                                    C          D7
But through the woods at Glentor, ye can slip in an hour
         C           G             C               D7
An' it's up spak the babe, sittin' on his mither's knee
          C          G          C           D7
Sayin', "Afore I'm a man, it's avenged I'll be"

G   C   G   D7 C  (2x)
