“She Moved Through The Fair” – Irish folk song and Throat Singing (Khoomei)

The exact origins of this song is kind of a mystery. The lyrics are pretty tragic, but beautiful as well.

Here’s the lyrics I sing:

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 laid her hand on me and this she did say:

It will not be long, love, till our wedding day.
