SHE MOVED THROUGH THE FAIR (4:05)

Traditional; arranged and adapted by Loreena McKennitt

 

 

My love said to me

My Mother won't mind

And me 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 through the fair

And fondly I watched her

Move here and move there

And she went her way homeward

With one star awake

As the swans in the evening

Move over the lake

 

 

The people were saying

No two e'er were wed

But one has a sorrow

That never has a sorrow

That never was said

And she smiled as she passed me

With her goods and her gear

 

 

And that was the last

That I saw of my dear.

 

 

I dreamed it last night

That my true love came in

So softly she entered

Her feet made mo din

she came close beside me

And this she did say

It would not be long love

Till our wedding day.
