She Moved Through The Fair

   D                                          C                    D  
 My own love said to me, "My mother won't mind

                                                       C                 D                                     
 And my father won't slight you for your lack of kind"

                                                           C                 D
 And she stepped away from me and this she did say

     C               D                   C                   D        
 It will not be long, love, till our wedding day

         D                                                C                             D
 She stepped away from me and she moved through the fair
                                                   C                      D
 And fondly I watched her move here and move there
                                                   C             D
 Then she went homeward with one star awake
              C                  D                      C            C
 Like the swan in the evening moves over the lake

       D                                    C                      D
 The people were saying, no two e'er were wed
                                           C                D  
 But one had a sorrow that never was said
                                                      C                       D
 She went away from me with her goods and her gear,
       C                    D             C                D
 And that was the last that I saw of my dear.

   D                                    C                      D
 I dreamt it last night, my own love came in
                                             C                    D
 So softly she came that her feet made no din
                                                   C                  D  
 As she laid her hand on me and this she did say
    C               D                   C                   D
 It will not be long, love, 'til our wedding day
