GERRY RAFFERTY - She Moved Through the Fair



"She Moved Through the Fair" (or "She Moves Through the Fair") is a traditional Irish folk song, which exists in a number of versions and has been recorded many times.​ ​
The melody is in Mixolydian mode.​ John Loesberg speculates: "From its strange, almost Eastern sounding melody, it appears to be an air of some antiquity," but he does not define its age any more precisely. It has been found both in Ireland and in Scotland, but scraps of the song were first collected in County Donegal by the Longford poet Padraic Colum and the musicologist Herbert Hughes. (Wikipedia)

I gather Rafferty's recording never appeared on an album, but was made available through his official website.
