She Moved Through the Fair – lyrics wav mp3

Richard Brennan kindly invited me to teach Alexander Technique & singing at his training course in Galway last week. I had a truly wonderful time.
Here are the students and I singing that beautiful and haunting Irish ballad She Moved Through the Fair.  
I’m really hoping to hear a few more songs from that direction.
Here is the downloadable version She Moved Through the Fair – wav

She Moved Through the Fair

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 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 then she went homeward
With one star awake
Like the swan in the evening
Moves over the lake

The people were saying,
“No two e’er were wed
But one had a sorrow
That seldom was said”
And I smiled as she passed by
With her goods and her gear,
And that was the last
That I saw of my dear.

I dreamed it last night,
That my young love came in
So softly she stepped that
Her feet made no din
And she laid her hand on me
And this she did say
“It will not be long, love,
‘Til our wedding day”
