the lewis bridal song lyrics – roger whittaker

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.

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.

red her cheeks as rowans are,
bright her eye as any star,
fairest o´ them a´ by far,
is our darling mairi.

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.

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.

plenty herring, plenty meal,
plenty peat to fill her creel,
plenty bonnie bairns as weel,
that´s the toast for mairi.

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.

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.
