Intro:     Two Bars of C (Cross picking)		kandvlee@shaw.ca

        / C                        /Am
Too / thin the line that / charged the Heights, and
F                          / C
Scrambled in the / clay.
        / C                       / Am
Too / thin the Eastern / Township Scot
         / F                               / G
Who / showed them all the / way, and
         / C                         / Am
Per - / haps had you not / fallen,
                  / F                             / Am
You might / be what Brock be - / came,
             / C              / F                                    / C        / /
But not / one in ten / thousand knows your / name. / /

      / C                                / Am
To / say the name, Mac - / donnell,
               / F                      / C
It would / bring no bugle / call,
             / C                                   / Am
But the / Redcoats stayed be - / side you,
                   / F                          / G
When they / saw the General / fall.
                    / C                             / Am
Twas Mac- / donnell raised the / banner then, and
F                              / Am
Set the Heights a - / flame,
             / C               / F                                  / C         / /
But not / one in ten / thousand knows your  /name. / /

Chorus:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/stan_rogers/macdonnell_on_the_heights_crd.html ]
        / G                              /
You / brought the field all / standing
                 / F                             / C
With your / courage and your / luck,
             / C                                   / Am
But un- / known to most, you're / lying there
        / F                           / G
Be - / side old General / Brock.
                       / C                 / Am
So you know / what it is to / scale the Heights, and
F                         / Am
Fall just short of / fame, and
                / C               / F                                 / C        / /
Have not / one in ten / thousand know your / name. / /

At / Queenston now, the / General,
            / F                          / C
On his / tower stands a - / lone, and
              / C                         / Am
There's / lichen on "Mac - / donnell,"
                     / F                             / G

In a / corner of the / monument,
     / F                        / Am
To / glory you could / claim,
             / C               / F                                  / C
But not / one in ten / thousand knows your / name.

        / G                              /
You / brought the field all / standing,
                 / F                           / C
With your / courage and your / luck,
