She Is Like The Swallow
Karan Casey;Niall Vallely;Robbie Overson Lyrics


She's like the swallow that flies on high
She's like the river that never runs dry
She's like the sun beaming on the lea shore
I love my love, but love is no more

A maiden into her garden did go
For to pluck her some wild primrose
The more she plucked, the more she did pull
Until this maiden's apron was full
Then out of these roses she made a bed
A scarlet pillow for her head
She laid her down, no words she did speak
And then this maiden's heart, it did break

She's like the swallow that flies on high
She's like the river that never runs dry
She's like the sun beaming on the lea shore
I love my love, but love is no more

Feel like I've stumbled into a private party and I'm listening at the door. Great stuff

Loooove this song! I learned it this summer in Ireland. Lovely.

Brilliant! <3

Craftworld Eldar

Yes! So many covers of this song slow down the timing and drag the frills such that- while pretty- the tune no longer moves along like a hare and hounds- this singer has the right idea; she is actually pulling the rest of the band forward

Abby

Great song and performance. Karen Casey's voice is beautiful. Feeds the soul.
