1  Loud the winds howl, Loud the waves roar, thun - der claps rend the air,_
2  Though the waves leap, soft shall ye sleep, Ocean's  a     royal    bed;
3  Many's the lad    fought on that day,   Well the claymore could     wield
4  Burned are our homes, exile and death   Scat - ter the loyal        men;

   Am                   Dm                   Am                        G7

1  Baf - fled our foes stand on the shore,  Fol - low  they  will not dare,_
2  Rocked in the deep, Flora will keep      Watch by   your  wea - ry head.
3  When the night came, silently lay Dead   on    Cull  o    den's    field
4  Yet, e'er the sword cool in the sheath,  Char - lie  will  come a - gain
