Flow on, lovely river, flow gently along By your waters so sweet sounds the lark’s merry song On your green banks I wander where first I did join With you, lovely Molly, the rose of Mooncoin. Oh Molly, dear Molly, it breaks my fond heart To know that we two forever must part I’ll think of you Molly while sun and moon shine On the banks of the Shure that flows down by Mooncoin. Then here’s to the Shure with its valley so fair As oftimes we wandered in the cool morning air Where the roses are blooming and lilies 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 On your green banks I wander where first I did join With you, lovely Molly, the rose of Mooncoin.
