Oh, how sweet 'tis to roam by the sunny Shure stream
And hear the doves coo 'neath the morning sunbeam
Where the thrush and the robin their sweet notes entwine
On the banks of the Shure that flows down by Mooncoin.

Flow on lovely river, flow gently along
By your waters so sweet sounds the lark's merry song
By your green banks I wander where first I did join
With you lovely Molly, the rose of Mooncoin.

--- Instrumental ---

Oh Molly, dear Molly, it breaks my fond heart
To know that we two now forever must part
But I'll think of you Molly, when sun and moon shine
On the banks of the Shure that flows down by Mooncoin.

Flow on lovely river, flow gently along
By your waters so sweet sounds the lark's merry song
By your green banks I wander where first I did join
With you lovely Molly, the rose of Mooncoin.

With you lovely Molly, the rose of Mooncoin...
