lyrics

In the village of Kilgorey, there's a maiden young and fair
Her eyes they shone like diamonds, she had long and golden hair
But the countryman comes riding, rides up to her father's gate
Riding on a milk white stallion, he comes at the stroke of eight

Chorus:
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

I have come to court your daughter, Mary of the golden hair
I have wealth and I have silver, I have goods beyond compare
I will buy her silk and satin, a gold ring for her hand
I will buy for her a mansion, she'll have servants to command

I don't want your gold and silver, I don't want your house and land
I am going with the soldier, I've promised him my hand
But the father spoke up sharply: "You will do as you were told
You'll get married on this Sunday and you'll wear that ring of gold"

Chorus

In the village of Kilgorey, there's a deep stream flowing by
On her marriage day at midnight, she drowned with her soldier boy
In the cottage there is music, you can hear her father say:
"Step it out Mary my fine daughter, Sunday is your wedding day"

Chorus x2
