Macdonnell On The Heights  Stan Rogers

Too / thin[C] the line that / charged [/Am]the Heights, and
[F]Scrambled in the / clay.     [C]
Too / thin[C] the Eastern / Township Sc[Am]ot
Who / showe[F]d them all the / way, and         [G]
Per - / hap[C]s had you not / fallen,     [Am]
You might / be what [F]Brock be - / came,              [Am]
But not / one i[C]n ten / thousand [F]knows your / name. / /                 [C]          

To / say[C] the name, Mac - / donnell,        [Am]
It would / bring [F]no bugle / call,         [C]
But the / Redco[C]ats stayed be - / side you,           [Am]
When they / saw the G[F]eneral / fall.               [G]
Twas Mac- / donnell ra[C]ised the / banner then, and     [Am]
[F]Set the Heights a - / flame,     [Am]
But not / one i[C]n ten / thousand k[F]nows your  /name. / /                [C]            

Chorus:

You / brou[G]ght the field all / standing  
With your / courage[F] and your / luck,               [C]
But un- / known[C] to most, you're / lying there        [Am]
Be - / sid[F]e old General / Brock.        [G]
So you know / what it is [C]to / scale the Heigh[Am]ts, and
[F]Fall just short of / fame, a[Am]nd
Have not / one in [C]ten / thousand kno[F]w your / name. / /                  [C]          

Break: Chorus instrumental

At / Qu[C]eenston now, the / General,        [Am]
On his / tower[F] stands a - / lone, and      [C]
There's / lichen[C] on "Mac - / donnell,"      [Am]
Carved up - / on that w[F]eathered / stone.               [G]
In a / co[C]rner of the / monument,[Am]
To / gl[F]ory you could / claim,     [Am]
But not / one i[C]n ten / thousand k[F]nows your / name.                    [C]

You / brou[G]ght the field all / standing,  
With your / courage[F] and your / luck,             [C]
But un- / known[C] to most, you're / lying there,      [Am]
Be - / sid[F]e old General / Brock.      [G]
So you know / what it is[C] to / scale the Heig[Am]hts, and
[F]Fall just short of / fame, a[Am]nd
Have not / one in[C] ten / thousand kn[F]ow your / name. / /                  [C]
