Subject: Marie's Wedding and Farewell to Nova Sco
From: GUEST,Goldeneyes (sgordon@odyssey.on.ca)
Date: 30 Nov 00 - 07:44 PM

Hey everyone!

If anybody here could be kind enough to help me with the chords for Marie's Wedding, or Farewell to Nova Scotia, I would be very grateful. My friend and I have just come out with a folk cd for our grade 13 music project in Ontario, Canada and we need some more songs for our repetoire..

My email address is sgordon@odyssey.on.ca

Please send if you can help!

Thanks

-Goldeneyes

I'll try emailing you the lyrics and chords from the Rise Up Singing book from The Sing Out Corporation, a good source of lots of lyrics, although sometimes they get them a bit mixed up. Another good source is The Folksingers Wordbook from Oak Publications, if you can ever find a copy. I think it is long since out of print but shows up occasionally in used book shops.

If you'd like some of the history behind both songs.

Fred, Folksingers Wordbook is back in print. You can get it just about anywhere, but what immediately comes to mind is Elderly instruments.

Just a remark - the name Mhairi is Gaelic (however you spell it); in Scotland it is normally pronounced "Varrie", in Ireland "Moira". Since the tune is from the Scottish tradition, the former should prevail, but either is preferable to Marie, which in Scotland refers to a kind of biscuit produced by Patersons of Edinburgh (and very nice they are too!).

Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: MAIRI'S WEDDING
From: Seany
Date: 01 Dec 00 - 12:34 PM

I am using G, C and D

[G] Step we gaily on we go
[C] Heel to heel and [G] toe to toe
[G] Arm in arm and row for row
[C] All for Mari's [D]wedding

and same for verses

but I have also seen (JC's music site)
http://ecf-guest.mit.edu/~jc/music/abc/findtune.html

[G] Step we gaily on we go
[C] Heel to heel and [D] toe to toe
[G] Arm in arm and row for row
[C] All for Mari's [D]wedding

If you do a search on Google or elsewhere you can pick up another variation that uses A, D and E7 (not bad ). There is even a further variation that I found but when I tried it, it sounded poor, it must have been wrong.

The chords are also in Van Morrison Irish Heartbeat album, fulls sets of chords and lyrics from this album can be found in various places on the WWW.

e.g. www.freewebcity.com/vantab/tabs/irish_heartbeat_album.html

We play it with one more chord than Seany, probably because we grew up playing 70's rock and roll in various gargages:

[G] Step we gaily [Em] on we go
[C] Heel to heel and [D] toe to toe
[G] Arm in arm and [Em] row for row
[C] All for Mari's [D]wedding

and same for verses; moves nicely into "Hey Baby" and "Blue Moon"

May I suggest to Ed that the correct order for that particular medley should be Blue Moon, Mhairi's Wedding and then Hey Baby ... although, come to think of it, that's not always the order

Step we gaily to the pub
Drink the booze and eat the grub
Mari's in White Heather Club
Time for Mari's wedding...

Bernard That wasn't Jehosaphat & Jones, was it? Sounds more like RB & RC being Moira Anderson and Andy Stewart.
