Great Big Sea
Band: Great Big Sea

Here's a great song by a great Canadian band.  It's a traditional
arrangement, so the lyrics are near impossible to find.  I've done the best I
could in figuring out what they're saying, although it's quite hard.  Anyway,

Mari Mac - Great Big Sea

(Em) There's a cute little lass and her name is Mari-Mac (D)
And make no mistake she's the girl I'm gonna track (Em) Lots of other
fellas try to get her on the back. But I'm (G) thinkin'  they'll (A)
have to get up early (Em).

(Em) Mari-Macs mother's makin' Mari-Mac marry me
(D) My mother's makin' me marry Mari-Mac
(Em)  Well I'm gonna marry Mari cause Mari's takin' care o' me. We'll
(G) all be feelin' (A) marry when (Em) I marry Mari-Mac.

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

(Em)Well up among the heather in the hills of Benafee
Well (D)I had a Bonnie lass sittin' on my knee
A (Em)bumble bee stung me right above the knee
(G)Up among the (A)heather in the (Em)hills of Benafee

(Em)Well I said to bonnie lass how we gonna pass the  day
She (D)said among the heather in the hills of Benafee
Where (Em) all the boys and girls are making up a fray
(G)Up among the (A)heather in the (Em)hills of Benafee

(Em)Wedding's on a Wednesday, everything's arranged
(D)Soon you'll never change your mind unless you minus change
Of (Em)making the arrangements and feelings lots of rage
(G)Marriage is an (A)awful under(Em)taking

(Em)Sure to be a grand for grand of that a fair
(D)Gonna be a fork and plate for every man thats there
And (Em)I'll be a bugger if I don't get my share
(G)All though I may be (A)very much mis(Em)taken

(Em)There's a neat little las and her name is Mari Mac
(D)Make no mistake, she's the girl I'm gonna track
(Em)Lot's of other fellas try to get her on her back
But I (G)think they're gonna (A)have to get up (Em)early
