Mairi’s Wedding Elementary Setting

Below is the elementary setting of Mairi’s Wedding.



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 my darlin’ Mairi.


Plenty herring, plenty meal

Plenty peat to fill her creel

Plenty bonny bairns as weel

That’s the toast of Mairi.

Chorus (Twice)
