With these Chords I follow the version of the song by The Corries.
They play it with Capo 7.

[Verse 1]
    A                             E
Farewell ye dungeons dark and strang,
    A              D
The wretches destiny,
   A                         E
MacPhersons time will no be lang,
   A       D        E7
On yonder gallow's tree

[Verse 2]
        A                        E
It was by a woman's treachorous hands,
     A                   D
That I was condemned to dee,
      A                  E
She stood uben a windae ledge,
       A           D     E7
And a blanket threw o'er me

[Chorus]
     A              E
Sae rantingly, sae wantonly,
         A              D
Ans sae dauntingly gaed he,
     A                           E
He played a tune and he danced around
   A       D        E7
Below the gallow's tree

[Verse 3]
    A                           E
Oh what is death, but parting breath
    A              D
On mony a bloody plain
      A                           E
I've daur'd his face, and in his place
   A        D      E7
I scorn him yet again

[Chorus]
     A              E
Sae rantingly, sae wantonly,
         A              D
Ans sae dauntingly gaed he,
     A                           E
He played a tune and he danced around
   A       D        E7
Below the gallow's tree

[Verse 4]
        A                              E
I have lived a life, o' straught and strife
   A             D
I die by treachery
    A                             E
It burns my heart, that I must depart
   A     D     E7
An no avenged be

[Chorus]
     A              E
Sae rantingly, sae wantonly,
         A              D
Ans sae dauntingly gaed he,
     A                           E
He played a tune and he danced around
   A       D        E7
Below the gallow's tree

[Verse 5]
    A                          E
So tak these bands fae aff my hands
 A            D
Gae to me my sword
        A                    E
There's nae a man in a' Scotland
          A        D     E7
But I'll brave him at a word

[Chorus]
     A              E
Sae rantingly, sae wantonly,
         A              D
Ans sae dauntingly gaed he,
     A                           E
He played a tune and he danced around
   A       D        E7
Below the gallow's tree

[Verse 6]
     A                           E
Now farewell light thou sunshine bright
    A                D
And all beneath the sky
     A                        E
May coward shame distain his name
      A          D       E7
The wretch that dare not die

[Chorus]
     A              E
Sae rantingly, sae wantonly,
         A              D
Ans sae dauntingly gaed he,
     A                           E
He played a tune and he danced around
   A       D        E7
Below the gallow's tree
