    "She Moved Thro' The Fair" Lyrics

    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 stepp'd away from me
    And this she did say,
    "it will not be long, love,
    Till our wedding day."

    She stepp'd away fromme
    And went through the fair
    And fondly I watch'd her
    Move here and move there
    And then she went homeward
    With one star awake
    As the swan in the evening
    Moves over the lake

    The people were saying
    That no two e'er were wed
    And one had a sorrow
    That never was said
    And I smiled as she passed
    With her goods and her gear,
    And that was the last
    That I saw my dear.

    Last night she came to me
    She came softly in.
    So softly she came
    That her feet made no din.
    And she placed her hand on me
    And this she did say
    "oh it will not be long, love,
    Till our wedding day."
