1. In the village of Kildoran|
Lived a maiden young and fair
Her eyes, they shone like diamonds,
She had long and golden hair
The countryman came riding up
To her daddy's gate
Mounted on a milk-white stallion,
He came at the stroke of eight.
2. I have come to court your daughter.
Mary of the golden hair
I have gold and I have silver,
I have lands beyond compare
I will buy her silks and satins
And a gold ring for her hand
I will buy her a mansion,
She'll have servants to command.
3. Oh kind Sir I have a soldier|
And I've pledged to him my hand
I don't want your gold nor silver,
I don't want your horse nor land
Mary's father spoke up sharply,
You will do as you are told
You'll mary him on Sunday
And you'll wear the ring of gold.
4. In the village of Kildoran
There's a deep stream running by
They found Mary there on Sunday,
She had drowned with soldier boy
In the cottage there is music,
You can hear her daddy say
Step it out Mary my fine daughter,
Sunday is your wedding day.
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.
