about

Where two young lovers meet one morning on the way to the Bandon Fair.

lyrics

Bandon Fair

One morning bright as I was rambling on Dunmanway Road
Oh by the cross I saw her stand waiting all alone
The sun shone down among the clouds through her long red hair
I found my love as I went walking to the Bandon fair

Her father came to sell his cattle all at harvest time
And she had wandered far ahead out in the morning light
We laughed and joked side by side all the long way there
I found my love as I went walking to the Bandon fair

I courted her all winter long and soon I’d won her heart
I asked her hand for I could stand no more to be apart
And by my side a summer bride a white rose in her hair
I found my love as I went walking to the Bandon fair

Oh my love she whispers softly, I will always be yours
Come what may, no heart will sway, the course of this true love
And in my eyes my own reply burns for ever there
I found my love as I went walking to the Bandon fair
I found my love as I went walking to the Bandon fair
