Maggie Are Ye Sleeping Robert Tannahill (1744-1810) (Scotland) 1. Mirk and rai ny is the night, there's no a star in Am Em Am a' the car ry. Light nins gleam a thwart the lift, and Em Am Em cauld winds drive wi' win ter's fu ry. Oh, are ye Am Em C sleep ing, Mag gie, oh, and are ye G sleep ing Mag gie, let me in for Am loud the linn is how ling o'er the war lock crai gie. Em Am 2. Fearfu' soughs the boortree bank, the rifted wood roars wild and dreary. Loud the iron yett does clank, the cry of hoolits mak's me eerie. Oh, are ye sleeping Maggie ... 3. Abune ma breath, I daurnae speak, for fear I rouse your waukrife Daddy. Cauld's the blast upon my cheek, o, rise, o, rise, my bonnie lady. Oh, are ye sleeping Maggie ... 4. She's ope'd the door, she's let him in, she's cuist aside his dreepin' plaidie. Blaw yer warst ye rain and wind, for Maggie noo I'm in aside ye. Noo since your waukin' Maggie, noo since your waukin' Maggie, what care I for hoolits cry, for boortree bank or warlock Craigie. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
