Thread Name: Lyr Req: She Moves through the Fair
Subject: Lyr Add: SHE MOVES THROUGH THE FAIR
My young love said to me, my mother won't mind
And my father won't slight you for your lack of kine
Then she turned away from me and this she did say
It will not be long love till our wedding day

She turned away from me and moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her move here and move there
Then she went her way homeward with one star awake
As the swan of the evening moves over the lake

The people were saying no two were ere wed
But one had a secret that never was said
And I smiled as she passed with her goods and her gear
And that was the last that I saw of my dear

Last night she came to me,he softly came in
So softly she moved that her feet made no din
Then she laid her hand on me and this she did say
It will not be long love till our wedding day.
