Subject: Sheet Music, She Moved Through The Fair
From: Steve Latimer
Date: 05 Jul 99 - 03:40 PM

Wondering if anyone knows a site where I could get guitar sheet music for "She Moved Through The Fair". Barring that, tab would suffice. Searched OLGA and drew a blank.

Thanks,

Steve Latimer

Susan, thank you for the offer, but my sister needs it to accompany a guest artist at her show this Friday. If we don't find it time I will take you up on your offer of snail mail.

SingsIrishSongs, I tried that site, but I couldn't connect by e-mail. I will try again tomorrow.

Thanks to both of you. It sure is a beautiful song.

Steve

Dear Steve, This may not be of much help, but it was posted in the "RE: She Moves Thorugh the Fair" Thread we had here some time ago, by SingsIrishSongs. When I play it in my rudimentary way, I often throw in an Amin in the third line. It is very modal music, so going back and forth between the D and the C works out. It is the voice that moves, not the accompaniment.
yours, Peter T.

SHE MOVED THROUGH THE FAIR

    

D--(C----Bm---C----D)---------C------------D---
My young love said to me, "My mother won't mind
--------------------(Bm)-----------C------------D---
And my father won't slight you for your lack of kind."
---------------------(Bm)--------C------------D---
And she stepp'd away from me and this she did say:
----(C---Bm--C--D)-------------------C-------D---
"It will not be long, love, till our wedding day."

Thank you, I will pass this on to my sister tonight. I'm sure she will be able to figure it out by Friday.

Thanks again to all.

I would be really grateful to receive any suggestion of the chords for this beautiful lyric that you could send me.
A very amateur folky!

Gerry,

Look above a few posts ~ Peter T supplied a set of chords back in 1999.

There was a discussion on uk.music.folk a few years ago in which David Kilpatrick gave it as an example of a tune you could accompany with just *one* chord. He may well have a sample of himself doing it on his Soundclick page.

It is often performed with no chords (unaccompanied), and very effectively at that.

Some would contend that this is a prime example of a song that should NEVER be accompanied by an instrument.

Just a thought, If you play an instrument,guitar, mandolin, concertina,or some such and you can play the melody of this song,try singing the song whilst playing the melody. The effect can be quite stunning. Although I agree with Poppagator, much better to sing it unaccompanied.

Padráic Colum's song was originally published (Herbert Hughes, Irish Country Songs, London: Boosey & Co, 1909) with a piano accompaniment. The traditional song on which it was based (see the many other discussions on this song for further details) will have been sung without accompaniment, but that is not the subject of this thread.

Thanks PoppaGator for your comments about this song being best unaccompanied. I was going to say the same thing earlier but didn't want to discourage Gerry Hignett from his creative endeavours.
One or two have managed to provide accompaniment for this song without taking too much away from the words but not too many.

If you google on images, there are loads of sheet music. Here's one I can see is the tune I know:

Or find it on Youtube and learn by ear?
