She moved 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
and she stepped away from me and this she did say
it will not be long love ´til our wedding day

She stepped away from me and she 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 in the evening moves over the lake

The people were saying no two were e´er wed
but one has a sorrow that never was said
and she smiled as she passed with her goods and her gear
and that was the last that I saw of my dear

I dreamed it last night my true love came in
so softly she entered her feet made no din
and she came close beside me and this she did say
it will not be long love ´til our wedding day
