Lewis Bridal Song (Mairi’s Wedding)


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 hill ways, up and down
Myrtle green and bracken brown
Past the sheeling, though the town
All for sake of Mairi

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

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