W:In the village of Kildorey, there lived a maiden fair,
W:Her eyes they shone like diamonds, she had long and golden hair,
W:A countryman came riding, up to her father's gate,
W:Mounted on a milk white stallion, he came at the stroke of eight.
W:
W:Chorus:
W:Step it out Mary, my fine daughter,
W:Step it out Mary, if you can,
W:Step it out Mary, my fine daughter,
W:Show your legs to the countryman.
W:
W:I have come to court your daughter, Mary of the golden hair,
W:I have wealth and I have money, I have goods beyond compare,
W:I will buy her silks and satin, and a gold ring for her hand,
W:I'll build for her a mansion, she'll have servants to command.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Oh kind Sir I love a soldier, I have pledged to him my hand,
W:I don't want your wealth nor money, I don't want your house nor land,
W:Mary's father spoke up sharply: You will do as you are told,
W:You'll be married on a Sunday and you'll wear the ring of gold.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:In the village of Kildorey there's a deep stream running by,
W:They found her there at midnight, she drowned with the soldier boy.
W:In the cottage there is music, you can hear her father say:
W:Step it out, Mary, my fine daughter, Sunday is your wedding day.
W:
W:Chorus
