X:2248 T:She Moved Through the Fair R:song C:Lyrics by Padraic Colum (1881-1972) Z:id:hn-song-76 M:3/4 L:1/8 Q:1/4=90 K:Dmix ((3DEF) | G2 F2 GA | A4 (GE) | C2 C2 D2 | D4 AB | c2 d3 A | B2 A3 F | G2 F2 G2 | A4 AB | c2 d3 A | B2 A3 F | G2 F2 G2 | A4 ((3DEF) | G2 F2 G2 | A A3 (GE) | C2 C2 D2 | D4 || W:My young love said to me: "My mother won't mind W:And my father won't slight you for your lack of kind". W:And she stepped away from me and this she did say: W:"It will not be long, love, till our wedding day." W: W:She stepped away from me and she moved through the fair W:And fondly I watched her move here and move there W:As she went her way homeward with one star awake W:As the swan in the evening moves over the lake. W: W:The people were saying no two e'er were wed W:But one has a sorrow that never was said W:And she smiled as she passed me with her goods and her gear W:And that was the last that I saw of my dear. W: W:I dreamt it last night that my true love came in W:So softly she entered that her feet made no din W:And she came close beside me and this she did say: W:"It will not be long, love, till our wedding day."
