Step It Out Mary My Fine Daughter Irish lyrics and chords. Written by Sean McCarthy and the video here is by The Dubliners with Paddy Reilly doing the singing. Thanks to Donnacha Kavanagh for sending me this,The chorus has the same chords as the verses. The sheet music notes are included.

 Dm)In the village of (C)Kilgory, there’s a (Dm)maiden young and (C) fair

Her (Dm)eyes they shone like C)diamonds, she had (Dm)long and (Am)golden (Dm)hair

Then a countryman came riding, up to her father's gates

Mounted on a milk-white stallion, he came at the stroke of eight 


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 wealthy man 

I have come to wed your daughter, Mary of the golden hair

I have gold and I have silver I have land beyond compare

I will buy her silks and satin and a gold ring from her hand

I will buy for her a mansion, she'll have servants to command 


Kind sir I love a soldier, I have pledged to him my hand

I don't want your gold or silver, I don't want you house or land

Mary’s father spoke up sharply, You will do as you are told

You will marry him on Sunday and you'll wear his ring of gold 


Near the village of Kilgory there's a deep stream running by

They found Mary there at midnight, she had drowned with her soldier boy

In the village there is music, you can hear her father say

Step it out Mary, my fine daughter, Sunday is your wedding day. 

Chorus twice.

Alternative chords. The same pattern all the way through.
step it out(D)mary my fine(G)daughter
step it out (D)mary if u(G)can
step it out(D)mary my fine(G)daughter
show your(D)legs to the(A7)country(D)man.

How Step It Out Mary Was Written.
Sean McCa
rthy - , now there's a song that
keeps popping up, I tell you no lie when I
tell you I wrote that on pieces of cement
bags and toilet paper. I was WORKING, yes
working on a building site in London when
the idea came to me. We had an agent on
the site, Paddy Carmody, a good friend of
mine now, by the way. Paddy would be
roaring his head of for Sean, and I'd be
round the corner or in the jacks writing
away. I sang it for Paddy the last time I
was in London having a jar, yes I drink
too; and Paddy liked it, he didn't offer
me a job though. I would say to anybody
who thinks they can write songs ''Then
Write Them'' , there's enough fighting and
trouble in the world and songs old or new
are a great help in these troubled times.
