Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics

She Moved Through the Fair

Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

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
As she went her way homeward with one star awake
As the swan in the evening moves 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 dreamt it last night that my true love came in
So softly she entered that her feet made no din
And she came close beside me and this she did say:
"It will not be long, love, till our wedding day."
