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.
