naughtyforty Lyr Add: 'She moved through the fair' versions (24) RE: Lyr Add: 'She moved through the fair' versions 04 Dec 08


First verse - same as original

Second verse
^^
She stepped away from me and she moved through the fair
Where hand clapping dealers' loud shouts rent the air
The sunlight about her did sparkle and did play
And it will not be long love until our wedding day

When dew falls on meadows and moths fill the night
When glow the ashes and dark grows half light
I'll slip from the casement and we will run away
And then it will not be long love until our wedding day

According to promise at midnight I rose
But all that I found were her downfolded clothes
The sheets they lay empty, it was plain for to see
That out of the window with another went she

If I were an eagle and had wings to fly
I would fly to my love's castle and 'tis there I would lie
On a bed of green ivy I would lay my head down
And with my two fond wings I would my love surround
