Alan Magnus-Bennett I first heard this song sung by a friend in Dunkeld. Her version was as beautiful as Caitlin's with the same clarity of voice.

about

This is Caitlin's version of this beautiful traditional Irish song.

lyrics

She moved through the fair
(Traditional)

My young love said to me, my mother won’t mind
And me 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
And she made her way homeward with one star awake
As the swan in the evening moves over the lake

The people were saying
No two ‘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

Last night she came to me
My true love came in
So softly she came that
Her feet made no din
And she laid her hands on me and this she did say
It will not be long love ‘til our wedding day
