"She Moved Through the Fair" is based on a traditional Irish folk song. Its original author is unknown (it is said to have first been collected in Donegal by Padraic Colum and Herbert Hughes). This version is performed by Rob Yates, and its haunting tune and lyrics will be familiar to many.

Hope ya enjoy,
Rob :)



"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 laid her hand on me and this she did say
It will not be long now 'til our wedding Day

And she went away from me, she moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her move here and move there
And then she went onward, just one star awake
Like the swan in the evening moves over the lake

Last night she came to me, my young love came in
So softly she entered that her feet made no din
And she laid her hand on me and this she did say
It will not be long now 'til our wedding day"
