Lyrics - Lewis Bridal 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 hill-ways up and down,
Myrtle green and bracken brown,
Past the sheilings, thro' the town,
All for sake o' Mairi.


Red her cheeks as rowans are,
Bright her eye as any star,
Fairest o' them a' by far
Is our darling Mairi.


Plenty herring, plenty meal,
Plenty peat to fill her creel,
Plenty bonny bairns as weel:
That's the toast for Mairi.
