Cover-version:


Transcribed by

Thanks!
McGreggor was a soldier brave
A soldier brave was he
And after fighting forty years
He said, "That's it for me"
His corporal said, "I'll see you dead
Before I'll see you free."
McGreggor said, "Then I'll be dead,"
And shot his corporal through the head

So after fighting forty years
And fighting valiantly
They took McGreggor by the neck
And hung him from a tree
They hung him from a tree they said
'cause we'd be safe if he was dead
And when he died, his loved ones cried
I hope mine cry for me, for me
I hope mine cry for me, for me
