lyrics

My young love said to me:
“My mother won’t mind,
and my father won’t slight you
For your lack of kine”
And she went away from me
And this she did say:
It will not be long, love
Til our wedding day

She went away from me
And moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her
Move here, and move there
Then she went away homeward
With star awake
As the swan the evening
Moves over the lake

The people were saying
No two were e’er wed
But one had a sorrow
That never was said
And I smiled as she passed
with her goods and her gear
And that was the last
That I saw of my dear

Last night she came to me
My dead love came in
So softly she came 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
