The Songlines

This topic is related to the article She Moved Through The Fair.

She moved through the fair
This song was always, to me, a very beautiful and wistful variant of the Demon Lover genre. She seduces the subject, then vanishes, only to return at night (or in a dream) to reaffirm her promise that 'it will not be long, love, till our wedding day'. The last verse begins:'Last night she came to me, she came softly in', and it is only in the last line that it becomes clear she will call him to the underworld.
