Fm//  Fm/ Eb// X4

Fm                    Eb

Mach [Mirk] and rainy is the nicht [night]
Fm                   C#     Eb

There's no a star in a' the carry
Fm                Eb

Lightning gleams athwart the lift
Fm                      C#       Eb

And winds drive on with winter's fury

Ab        Ab

O are you sleepin' Maggie
Eb                 Eb

O are you sleepin' Maggie
Fm             Fm       Eb

Let me in, for loud the linn
Fm                      C#   Eb

Is roaring now o'er the warlacragie [warlock craigie]

Fearfu' socks the boortree bank
The rifted wood roars wild and dreary
Loud the iron yet does clank
And cry of howlets mak me eerie

Aboon my breath I daurna speak
For fear I'll rise your waalkrife daddie
Cold's the blast upon my cheek
Arise, Arise, my bonnie lady
Fm//  F/ Eb//
Fm//  C#/ Eb/

She's op'ed the door, she's let him in
He's cruist aside his dreeping plaidie
Blow your worst ye rainie wind
Since Maggie now I'm in asideya

New since you're walkin' Maggie
New since you're walkin' Maggie
What care I for howlets cry
For roaring linn or warlacragie


I'd like to see some more MacLean tabs,
this is probably the one of the easiest if
not the most basic.Questions or comments welcome.
Cheers, DO
