SHE MOVES THROUGH THE FAIR (Ela Se Mudou Com a Feira) (Music: traditonal Irish, Lyrics: Padraic Colum arranged and adapted: Loreena McKennitt) Loreena McKennitt also recorded by: Anne Briggs, Fairport Convention, Pentangle, Bert Jansch, Sinead O'Connor, Shawn McGowan, Orla Fallon, Cara Dillon, Michael Londra, Richard Thompson, John McCormack, Odetta, Michael Thomas, Davey Graham, Camilla Kerslake, Kate Bush & Rolf Harris, Clara Considine, Rebecca Fox etc. etc. My love said to me: "My mother won't mind And me father won't slight you For your lack of kind". Then she stepped away from me And this she did say: "It will not be long, love, Till our wedding day." She stepped away from me And she moved through the fair And fondly I watched her Move here and move there And she went her way homeward With one star awake As the swans in the evening Move over the lake. The people were saying No two e'er were wed But one has a sorrow That never was said And she smiled as she passed me With her goods and her gear And that was the last That I saw of my dear. I dreamed it last night That my true love came in So softly she entered Her feet made no din She came close beside me And this she did say: "It will not be long, love, Till our wedding day."
