    Lyrics

    So step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
    Step it out, marry, if you can
    Step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
    Show your legs to the countryman (x2)

    In the village of Kilgory, there's a maiden young and fair
    Her eyes shine like diamonds, she has long and golden hair
    The horseman he comes riding, riding up to her father's gates
    On a pure-white stallion, he comes at the strike of eight.

    Chorus:
    So step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
    Step it out, marry, if you can
    Step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
    Show your legs to the countryman (x2)

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

    So step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
    Step it out, marry, if you can
    Step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
    Show your legs to the countryman (x2)

    I don't want your gold and silver, I don't want your house and land
    I am in love with a soldier, I have promised him my hand
    But the father spoke up sharply: You will do as i command,
    You'll get married on a Sunday and you'll wear that wedding band

    So step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
    Step it out, marry, if you can
    Step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
    Show your legs to the countryman (x2)

    In the village of Kilgory there's a deep stream flowing by
    On her wedding day at midnight she drowns with her soldier boy
    In the cottage there is music, you can hear her father say:
    Oh step it out, Mary, my fine daughter, Sunday is your wedding day.
    Sunday is your wedding day. (x2)

    So step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
    Step it out, marry, if you can
    Step it out, Mary, my fine daughter
    Show your legs to the countryman (x4)
