mairi’s wedding lyrics – bardic

step we gaily on we go,
heel for heel and toe for toe,
arm in arm and on we go,
all for mairi’s wedding

over hillways up and down,
myrtle green and bracken brown
past the sheiling through the town,
all for sake of mairi

plenty herring, plenty meal
plenty peat to feel her creel
plenty bonny bairns as wheel
that’s the toast for mairi

cheeks as bright as rowans are
brighter far than any star
fairest of them all by far
is our darling mairi

/ bardic lyrics
