All for Mairi' s wedding

Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm in arm and row and row
Over hill-way up and down
Myrtle green and bracken brown
Past the shieling through the town
All for Mairi's wedding

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


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


Written in 1935 for Mary McNiven, who lived on Islay
See Mairi's wedding performed by The High Kings
