Handsome Molly
Banjo - G Tuning -  Melody
(Complete lyrics at the bottom of this page)

 

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

Chorus:
While sailing 'round the ocean,
While sailing 'round the sea,
I'd think of Handsome Molly,
Wherever she may be.

Now do you remember Molly,
When you give me your right hand,
You said if you ever married,
That I would be your man.

Now you've broke your promise,
Go marry whom you please,
While my poor heart is achin',
You're lyin at your ease.

Well I went church last Sunday,
She passed me on by,
I knew her mind was changin',
By the rovin' of her eye.
