She Moved Through The Fair

Album: Elemental (1985)
  • 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. Writer/s: BARRY DOUGLAS, N DP
