    Marie's Wedding

    by John Roderick Bannerman
    ( Chorus
    [D] Step we gaily, on we go
    [G] Heel for heel and [A7] toe for toe
    [D] Arm in arm and row on row
    [G] All for Marie's [A7] wedding )


    Over hillways up and down
    Myrtle green and bracken brown
    Past the shielings through the town
    All for sake of Marie


    Red her cheeks as rowans are
    Bright her eyes as any star
    Fairest of them all by far
    Is our darling Marie

    Chorus 2x

    Oh plenty herring, plenty meal
    Plenty peat to fill her creel
    Plenty bonny bairns as well
    That's the toast for Marie

    Chorus 6x
