Lyrics

O’ WOE O’ WOE
CAPO FRET 5
VERSE 1
Am Em Am
O WOE, O WOE – O WOE IS ME,
F Em
FOR I DID FIGHT- FOR MY PRINCE TODAY.
F Am
I STOOD WITH THOSE – PROUD SCOTS SO BRAVE,
Em Am
AND FACED CUMBERLAND – AND HIS REDCOAT HORDE,
REFRAIN = EM TO Am

VERSE 2
O WOE, O WOE – O WOE IS ME,
FOR WE DID CHARGE – AND FOUGHT TODAY,
WE FOUGHT ON GROUND – THAT SUITED US ILL,
MANY OF US KNEW – THAT WE WOULD FAIL.
VERSE 3
O WOE, O WOE – O WOE IS ME,
THE REDCOAT GUNS – KILLED ALL THE BRAVE,
OUR LADDIES FELL – TO SOON THIS DAY,
WE HAD NO CHOICE – BUT TO RUN AWAY.
VERSE 4
O WOE, O WOE – O WOE IS ME,
THE REDCOAT DEVILS - THEY DID GIVE CHASE.
NO MERCY SHOWN – NO PRISONERS SPARED.
MY BROTHER FELL – SLAIN FROM BEHIND.
VERSE 5
O WOE, O WOE – O WOE IS ME,
MY COUNTRY BURNS – BOTH NEAR AND FAR,
WOMEN ARE TAKEN – CHILDREN BUIRED,
THE SLAUGHTER AND CARNAGE – RAVISH THE LAND.
VERSE 6
O WOE, O WOE – O WOE IS ME,
MY COTTAGE BURNED – MY CHILDREN TOO,
MY BONNIE LASSIE – THEY RUINED HER SO,
MY MOTHER AND FATHER – THEY PERISHED ALL.
VERSE 7
O WOE, O WOE – O WOE IS ME,
I KILLED THOSE REDCOATS – I KILLED THEM ALL,
WITH MY DYING BREATH – I CURSE THEM TO HELL,
TO MY BONNIE PRINCE – I BID FAREWELL.
