Lyrics

The water is wide ‘n I can’t cross oer,
‘N neither have I wings to fly,
Give me a boat that can carry two,
And both shall row,
My love and I.

For love is gentle and love is kind,
And love is sweet when first it’s new,
But love grows old and waxes cold,
And fades away like mornin’ dew.

There is a ship and it sails the sea,
She’s loaded deep as deep can be,
But not as deep as the love I’m in,
I know not how I sink or swim.

The water is wide ‘n I can’t cross oer,
‘N neither have I wings to fly,
Give me a boat that can carry two,
And both shall row,
My love and I.
And both shall row,
My love and I.

How sweet is 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 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.
