There were seven sisters. They were kind and good
The oldest sister went into the woods
She met and fell in love with a gentleman
He was the only son of the laird of the land 

Singing hi da diddle diddle die dal day
Hi da diddle diddle die dal day 

Every day just as the sunset fell,
The gentleman and maiden met beside a well
Their love was true. Their love was strong
The swore to tell their parents that they belong 

The oldest sister told her six siblings
She met a man to love for eternity
They giggled and laughed with pride and joy
They would see her wed, the sisters swore. 

The gentleman shared the love he found
But the Laird reminded him he was duty bound
He was betrothed to a fair lady
To extend his father’s land along the sea

There in the meadow, the gentleman professed
To marry the maiden in a pretty white dress
She and her sisters, they promised
They would wait for him til their Marriage kiss

The Laird he learned of the marriage plan
He swore his son would become a man
He chained his son on the bailey ground
the gentleman said he was already bound

As the sun set, the laird laughed cruelly
You’ll stay there till you listen to me
The Gentleman called out to the night
I will be faithful to my love so bright

There was a bright light. The ground it shook.
The water went dry Down by the brook.
The sisters heard the gentlemen's cry.
They turn to stane so they’d never die

The Lord went down to the Bailey ground
To see if his son had come around
There where his son had been chained alane
All that stood was a standings stane

Deep in the wood by a dried up brook
Stand Seven tall stones that continue to look
The seven sisters await the swain
Who stands in the courtyard all alane
