Em           D             C       Hm

Cold the wind on the moors blow

Em             D       C   Hm

Warm the enemy's fire glow

As ruthless and red as the embers of hell

MacDonald in anger did no work at all

With musket and cannon 'gainsthonour and courage

The invaders men stood while ourclansmen did fall

3. Now mothers and children areleft to their weeping

With only the memory of father orson

Turned out of their homes to makeshelter for strangers

The blackest of hours on this land has begun
