ONE DAY I HEARD MARY SAY. Scottish, Air (3/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The first stanza of the song, printed by Thomson, begins:

One day I heard Mary say,
How shall I leave thee;
Stay dearest Adonis, stay,
Why wilt thou grieve me.
Alas! my fond heart will break,
If thou should leave me,
I’ll live and dye for they sake,
Yet never leave thee.
