The Makem & Spain Brothers: The Tradition Continues
Back to song list


Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm in arm and on we go
All for Marie's wedding

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

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

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