Kate Rusby Sweet Bride Lyrics


A lady was walking on a midsummer's day The birds they were whistling so merrily and gay When along came a white steed in the finest array And it carried a young man these words he did say Come live by the great moon That rules the strong tide Climb up on my horse love And be my sweet bride I bid you good morning, this young man did say And where might you be going on such a nice day I'm walking to view sir the bonny blue sea For it's all I have left now that means much to me Chorus If that's all you love now, come riding with me You'll live in my castle deep under the sea You'll sleep in my gold bed, my fine silken sheets And have gifts of great beauty from all that you meet Chorus She's up in the saddle and away they did ride The horse skipped and danced over waves on the tide Now she's only remembered by this story I tell From an old man on horseback who once knew her well
