lyrics

Step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
Step it out, Mary, if you can
Step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
Show your legs to the countryman
Show your legs to the countryman

In the village of Kilgory
Lived a maiden young and fair
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
She had long and golden hair
A countryman came riding
Up to her father's gate
Mounted on a pure white stallion
He came at the stroke of eight

I have come to court your daughter
Mary of the golden hair
I have gold and I have jewels
I have wealth beyond compare
She'll live in a mansion
With servants to command
I have silk, I have satin
And a ring for her hand

I don't want your gold or silver
Your house or your land
I am going with the soldier boy
I promised him my hand
But her father spoke up sharply
You will do as you are told
You will marry him next Sunday
And you'll wear his ring of gold

In the village of Kilgory
There's a deep stream flowing by
They found Mary there at midnight
She had drowned with the soldier boy
In the village there was music
They could hear her father say
Step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
Sunday is your wedding day
Sunday is your wedding day
