Jimmy, see Lyr Add: The Terror Time (MacColl)
If you put the words Terror Time in the search box in the top right hand corner of this page there's lots more for you to browse through. Enjoy!

Can anyone email me the chords to Ewan MacColl's " The Terror Time. I have only heard Old Blind Dogs rendition of it and it appears to be only 3 chords D,C, & G.   Can anyone confirm this?   Thanks

Can't imagine it being sung to an accompaniment - it's chilling just with the unaccompanied voice. 'Winds of Change' on the other hand.....!!

Didn't MacColl write this as "Winter Song"? Jean Redpath was the first singer I heard sing it as Terror Time.

It was never called Winter Song. MacColl called it The Terror Time and it is from the Radio Ballad, The Travelling People. In fact it's from the section where they talk about Travellers braving the winter, naturally. Just before it starts, one of the Scots Travellers says "ahh that's the Terror Time."
