Dublin Fair – Now And Ever After lyrics

'Twas a morning fair when I walked out
Down by Greenwood meadows.
Fairies danced in the misty dew,
The sun it chased the shadows.

By Spencil Hill I chanced to spy,
A maid so quite adoring
So sweetly she sang Avondale
It set my hearth a-roving.

Love it fell out of the blue
And I went tumbling after.
I only want to be with you
For now and ever after.

Her hair was black as a ravens wing,
Her eyes were deep blue oceans
Skin was purest lily white
She set my heart a roving.

Boldly then she took my hand
My love she whispered gently,
Come follow me to Avondale
Where you and I shall marry


Like the morning mist she danced her way
Down through Greenwood valley.
And in the sky the sun she rose
And chased the nightly shadows.

I stopped to pick a rose so red
To give to my true loved one,
But when I looked the mist was gone
And so was my lover.
