She Moved Through the Fair

(Traditional)

 

My young love said to me, "My mother won't mind

And my father won't slight you for your lack of kind."

Then she stepped away from me and this she did say:

"It will not be long, love, till our wedding day."

 

She stepped away from me and she moved thru' the fair

And fondly I watched her move here and move there.

Then she made her way homeward with one star awake

As the swan in the evening moves over the lake.

 

Last night, she came to me, my dead love came in

So softly she entered her feet made no din,

And she laid her hand on me and this she did say:

"It will not be long, love, till our wedding day."
