Mairis Wedding

Step we gaily, on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe,
Arm in arm and row on row
All for Mairi’s wedding.

Over hillways up and down
Myrtle green and bracken brown,
Past the sheilings through the town
All for sake of Mairi.
Chorus

Red her cheeks as rowans are
Bright her eyes as any star,
Fairest o’ them all by far
Is our darlin’ Mairi.
Chorus

Plenty herring, plenty meal
Plenty peat to fill her creel,
Plenty bonny bairns as weel
That’s the toast for Mairi.
Chorus
