Fairport Convention – She Moves Through The Fair tab
Fairport Convention She moves through the fair (What we did on our holidays) By Marcel Veltman Who can say something sensible about the origin of this song? Many people believe it is a mediaeval traditional, but problably it was made up somewhere in the 19th century just to sound like one. There are even rumours that it is a complete hoax, brought into being by a young American named Randy Newman, long before he himself outfamed this song and everyone who ever sang it. If this is true, he never claimed the joke, nor the royalties when The Simple Minds took the melody for their mega-selling hitsingle 'Belfast Child' D, C, G, D, D My young love said to me C D My mother don't mind And my father won't sligh you C D For your lack of kind C D And she laid her hand on me C Am And this is she did say C D It will not be long love C D Till our wedding day D, C, Am, C, D, C, G, D And she went away from me She moves through the fair And fondly I watched her Move here and move there And then she went homeward Only one star awake Like a swan in the evening Moves over the lake Last night she came to me My dead 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 Oh, it will not be long love Till our wedding day
