Knopfler, Mark - A Night In Summer Long Ago Lyrics




My lady may I have this dance?
Forgive a knight who knows no shame
My lady may I have this dance
And lady may I have your name?

You danced upon a soldier's arm
And I felt the blade of love so keen
And when you smiled you did me harm
And I was drawn to you, my Queen

Now these boots may take me where they will
Though they may never shine like his
There is no knight I would not kill
To have my lady's hand to kiss

Yes and they did take me through the hall
To leave me not one breath from you
And they fell silent one and all
And you could see my heart was true

Then I did lead you from the hall
And we did ride upon the hill
Away beyond the city wall
And sure you are my lady still

A night in summer long ago
The stars were falling from the sky
And still, my heart, I have to know
Why do you love me, lady why?

    If you dont feel this, you dont have a heart 💘 😍...
    " My lady may I have this dance

    The song enhanced by the master uileann piper, Liam Ó'Floinn. But it takes a master (Mark) to work with another.

    I respect your reasons for wanting to go forward on your music, you are one of the best musicians I have ever heard. I don't want to turn off the music. So humbling for me, the slower ones just tear me up, Makes my heart long to be there.

  31. persluchtboy

    it has a irish swing to it and a melody that sounds like if heard it before, has anybody a idea on which Irish melody this is made..

    William Rowley

    To me it sounds a little like the music from the film Cal as that too was composed by Mark Knopfler, and I think that's where it's from, I may be wrong though.

    Amaury Sonneville

    raglan road... Luke Kelly. Mark also did a cover of that song. almost the same melody, it is just in a different key

  32. marilyn Artiles
