Rose of Mooncoin

Lyrics

How steet ’tis to roam by the Suir’s lovely stream
And hear the birds coo ‘neath the morning sun beams
The thrush and the robin, their sweet notes entwine
On the banks of the Suir that flows down by Mooncoin

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

Oh Molly dear Molly, it breaks my fond heart
To know that we two from each must part
I’ll think of you Molly while sun and moon shine
On the banks of the Suir that flow down by Mooncoin

She has sailed far away o’re the dark rolling foam
Far away from the hills of her dear Irish home
Where the fisherman sports with his small boat and line
On the banks of the suir that flows down by Mooncoin
chorus

Then here’s to the Suir with it’s valleys so fair
As off times we wandered in the cool morning air
Where roses are blooming and lillies entwine
On the banks of the Suir that flows down by Mooncoin
chorus
