Sheet Music (and more information about this song)
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 shieling through the town, all for sake of Mairi.
Red her cheeks as rowans are, bright her eye as any star
Fairest of them all by far, is our darlin' Mairi.
Plenty herring, plenty meal, plenty peat to fill her creel
Plenty bonny bairns as weel, that's the toast for Mairi.
