She Moved Through The Fair

from Ark by Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate



This is an old Irish folksong, arranged by Malcolm Galloway.

The synth sounds used are entirely accurate reproductions of the FM synthesis modelling typical of 18th century Gaelic electronica. [This is not true].


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 stepped away from me
And this she did say
It will not be long now, before our wedding day

She went away from me
And she moved through the fair
And fondly I saw her go
Move here and move there

And she made her way homeward

With one star awake

As the swan in the evening moves over the lake
Last night she came to me
My dead love came in
So softly she came
Her feet made no din
And she came close to me
And this she did say
It will not be long love, until our wedding day
