She Moved Through the Fair

(trad./Arr. Quigg & McCalman)

'A well-known traditional Irish song, which exists in many different variations.'

My young love said to me,
My mother won't mind
And my father won't slight you
For your lack of kind.
And she stepped away from me
And this she did say:
It will not be long, Love,
'Til our wedding day.

She stepped away from me
And she moved through 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
Moved over the lake.

Last night she came to me,
My true love came in.
So softly she came
That her feet made no din.
And she laid her hand on me,
And this she did say:
It will not be long, love,
'Til our wedding day.
