about

Traditional folk song / Arranged by Emma Heath, Mark Davies and Tony Skeggs

lyrics

My young love said to me my mother wont mind
And my father wont slight you for your lack of kine
And she stepped away from me and this she did say
It will not be long love til our wedding day.

She stepped away from me and she moved through the fair
So sadly I watched her move here and move there
Then homeward she wondered with one star awake
As the swan in the evening moves over the lake.

The people were saying no two were e’er wed
But one had a sorrow that never, never was said
And she went away from me and this she did say
It will not be long love til our wedding day.

Last night she came to me my true 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.
