My (G) young love said to (D) Me
My (C) mother won't (D) mind
And my (C) father won't (D) slight you
For (G) your lack of (D) kind
And she (C) steped away fom (D) me
And (G) this she did (D) say
It (G) will not be (D) long love
Till (C) our wedding (D) day
She stepp'd away from me and she moved through the fair,
And fondly I watched her go here and go there,
Then she went her way homeward 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 has a sorrow that never was said,
And I smiled as she passed with her goods and her gear,
And that was the last that I saw of my dear.
I dreamt it last night that my young love came in,
So softly she entered, her feet made no din,
She came close beside me and this she did say,
"It will not be long, love, till our wedding day."
