Mari Mac

This song is the one that made me a fan of Great Big Sea. They didn’t write it – it’s a cover. But Lord thunderin’, it’s good, b’y.

Mari-Macs mother's makin' Mari-Mac marry me
My mother's makin' me marry Mari-Mac

We'll all be feelin' marry when I marry Mari-Mac.

  3. Such a great version of this song. I only knew it as more tame versions sung by various Irish bar singers.
