Handsome Molly
Written by William York



Chords


Song

1.

Well, I wish I was in London,
Or some other seaport town,
I'd set my foot on a steamboat,
And sail the ocean 'round.

chorus:

Sailing 'round the ocean,
Sailing 'cross the sea,
I'll think of Handsome Molly,
Wherever she may be.

2.

Her hair as black as a raven's,
Her eyes were black as coal,
Her teeth shone like lilies,
Out in the morning cold.

3.

I saw her in church on Sunday,
She passed me on by,
I knew her mind was changin',
By the roving of her eye.

4.

Don't you remember, Molly,
You gave me your right hand?
You said if you ever married,
That I would be your man.,

5.

But now you broke your promise,
Go marry whom you please,
While my poor heart is breaking,
You're lying at your ease.

6.

I go down to the river,
Though everyone's asleep,
I think of handsome Molly,
And I begin to weep.
