“Molly Bawn”


D					 G
Come all you young fathers that handle a gun,
    D                           C              A
Beware of night-rambling by the setting of the sun.
D				           G
And beware of an accident that happened of late,
     D                   C           A
To young Molly Bawn, and sad was her fate.

D				                 G
She was going to her uncle's, when a shower came on.
       D			 C         A
She went under a green bush, the shower to shun.
 D                             		           G
With her white apron 'round her, he took her for a swan,
       D                              C              A             
And he shot her and killed her by the setting of the sun.

D					    G
He ran to his father, with his gun in his hand,
             D                       C          A
Crying, "Father, dear Father, I have shot Molly Bawn!
D                                              G
I have shot that fair damsel, I have taken the life
       D                 C          A
Of the one I intended to take as my wife."


D			                          G
"She was going to her uncle's, when a shower came on.
    D                            C         A
She went under a green bush, the shower to shun.
D				                  G
With her white apron 'round her, I took her for a swan,
      D                              C              A
And I shot her and killed her by the setting of the sun."


D				  G
Oh, Jimmy, dear Jimmy, do not run away.
       D                           C          A
Do not leave your own country till your trial day.
D					           G
Do not leave your own country till your trial come on,
         D                           C            A
For they never will hang you for the loss of that swan.




D						     G
The night before Molly's funeral, her ghost did appear,
         D                      C        A
Crying, "Uncle, dear Uncle, let Jimmy go clear.
D                                            G
I was going to my uncle's when a shower came on.
       D                       C         A
I went under a green bush, the shower to shun.
D				                G
With my white apron 'round me, he took me for a swan.
          D                              C         A
Won't you tell him he's forgiven, by his own Molly Bawn?"
