Handsome Molly




I wish I was in London

Or some other seaport town

I'd set my foot on the ocean

I'd sail the ocean round


While sailing on the ocean

While sailing on the sea

Iíd think of handsome Molly

Wherever she might be


Donít you remember Molly

You gave me your right hand

You said if you should marry

I would be your man


Now youíve broke your promise

You go with who you please

While my poor heart is aching

Your lying at your ease


Hair as black as a raven

Eyes as black as coal

Her cheeks were like the lilies

Out in the morning grown
