old love ballad, sung in folk style


"My lady fair"

Oh, what ails me at this hour?
What ails me all the year?
I’ve been looking for my lover.
When will she appear?
She is pure as mountain river.
She is sweet as honey wine.
I don’t know where I can find her,
But I know she’s mine.

All my dreams have come to nothin,
Nothin but pain.
For my lady fair is out there,
And she’s still the same.

In the sun I feel her glory,
And the wind calls her name.
The highlands tell her story,
And mountains proclaim.
I have seen her in a flower.
I have seen her in a star.
She is everywhere, but with me
She’s ever afar.

What a lonely road I’ve traveled,
Traveled in vain.
For my lady fair’s still out there.
She’s still the same.

I have pondered every morrow,
On whether I would find
An ending to this sorrow
That blesses my mind.
It is worth the weight I carry.
It is worth the daily strife.
When we meet we’ll be forever,
Forever my life.

All my dreams have come to nothin,
Nothin but pain.
For my lady fair is out there,
And she’s still the same.

All my dreams have come to nothin,
Nothin but pain.
For my lady fair is out there,
And she’s still the same.
Yes my lady fair’s still out there.
She’s still the same.

My Lady Fair
Not especially original, but it does fit with a time long ago when men "pined" for their fantasy woman. We all know fantasies are not real.
