Mairi's Wedding

   Chorus:
G                   Em
Step we gaily, on we go
Am                     D
Heel for heel and toe for toe
G                      Em
Arm in arm and on we go,
Am                D
All for Mairi's wedding

Over Hill ways up and down
Myrtle green and bracken brown
Past the sheeling, through the town
All for sake of Mairi

Plenty herring, plenty meal
Plenty peat to fill her creel
Plenty bonny barns as well
That's the toast for Mairi

Cheeks as bright as Rowen's are
Brighter far than any star
Fairest of them all by far
Is my darling Mairi
