Boiled In Lead – Step It Out Mary lyrics

In the village of Kildori
There's a maiden young and fair
Her eyes they shone like diamonds
She had lovely golden hair
When the country man came riding
Up to her father's gate
Mounted on a milk-white stallion
He came at the stroke of eight.
Step it out Mary my fine daughter
Marry if you can
Mary my fine daughter
Show your legs to the wealthy man
"I've come to court your daughter
Mary of the golden hair
I have land and I have money
I have goods beyond compare
I'll buy her silk and satin
And a gold ring for her hand
I'll build for her a mansion
She'll have servants to command. "
"But sir I love a soldier,
I've pledged to him my hand.
I don't want your goods nor money
I won't have your house nor land. "
But her father spoke up sharply
"You will do as you are told.
You'll be married on this Sunday
And you'll wear his ring of gold. "
In the village of Kildori
There's a deep stream running by
They found Mary there at midnight
She drowned her soldier boy
In the cottage there was music
You can hear her father say
"Step it out Mary, my fine daughter
You know it's the wedding day. "
