My love said to me
My Mother won't mind
And me Father won't slight you
For your lack of kind
Then 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 she went her way homeward
With one star awake
As the swans in the evening
Move over the lake


The people were saying
No two e'er were wed
But one has a sorrowThat never 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 dreamed it last night
That my true love came in
So softly she entered
Her feet made mo din
She came close beside me
And this she did say
It would not be long love
Till our wedding day.
