  • (chorus)
  • O cruel is the snow
  • That sweeps glencoe
  • And covers the grave o donald
  • And cruel was the foe
  • That raped glencoe
  • And murderd the house of
  • Macdonald
  • They came in a blizzard
  • We offered them heat
  • A roof oer their heads
  • Dry shoes for their feet
  • We wined them and dined them
  • They ate of our meat
  • And they slept in the house of
  • Macdonald
  • (chorus)
  • They came from fort william
  • Wi murder in mind
  • The campbells had orders
  • King william had signed
  • Put all to the sword
  • These words were underlined
  • And leave none alive called
  • Macdonald
  • (chorus)
  • They came in the night
  • When the men were asleep
  • This band o argyles
  • Through snow soft and deep
  • Like murdering foxes
  • Among helpless sheep
  • They slaughtered the house of
  • Macdonald
  • (chorus)
  • Some died in their beds
  • At the hand of the foe
  • Some fled in the night
  • And were lost in the snow
  • Some lived to accuse him
  • That struck the first blow
  • But gone was the house of
  • Macdonald
