Em--
There's a neat little lass and her name is Mari Mac
D--
Make no mistake, she's the girl I'm gonna track
Em--
Lot of other fellas try to get her on her back but I'm
G--                   D--            Em--
Thinking that they'll have to get up early

[Chorus:]

Em--
Mari Mac's mother's making Mari Mac marry me
D (stop chord)        D--
My mother's making me marry Mari Mac, Well I'm
Em--
Going to marry Mari for when Mari's taking care of me, we'll
G--            D--                Em---
All be feeling merry when I marry Mari Mac

G-D-Em--

Em---
Now Mari and her mother are an awful lot together
D--
In fact you hardly see the one without the other
Em--
And people often wonder if it's Mari or her mother
G--             D--              Em--
Or both of them together I am courting

[Chorus]

Em--
Well up among the heather in the hills of Bonifee
D--
Well I had a bonnie lass sitting on me knee
Em--
A bumble bee stung me right above me knee
G--          D--                     Em--
Up among the heather in the hills of Benifee

[Chorus]

Em--
Well I said "Wee bonnie lassie, where you going to spend the day?"
D--
She said "Among the heather in the hills of Benifee"
Em--
Where all the boys and girls are making out so free
G--          D--            Em--
Up among the heather in the hills of Benifee

[Chorus]

Em--
The wedding's on Wednesday, everything's arranged
D--
Soon her name will be changed to mine unless her mind be changed
Em--
And making the arrangements, I'm feeling quite deranged
G--            D--          E--
Marriage is an awful undertaking

[Chorus]

Em--
Sure to be a grand affair, grander than a fair
D--
Going to be a fork and plate for every man that's there
Em--
And I'll be a bugger if I don't get my share
G--         D--                   Em--
If I don't we'll be very much mistaken

[Chorus]

Em--
There's a neat little lass and her name is Mari Mac
D--
Make no mistake, she's the girl I'm gonna track
Em--
Lot of other fellas try to get up on her back
G--                       D--              Em--
I'm thinking that they'll have to get up early

Hi-oot-lil-at-lil-at-lil-dum
   G-      D-        Em--
Hi-oot-lil-at-lil-at-lil-dum

......... Em Em
