To young Molly Ban And sad was her fate

She was going to her uncles When a shower came on
She went under a green bush The shower to shun

Her white apron wrapped around her He took her for a swan
But a hush and sigh Was his own Molly Ban

He quickly ran to her And found she was dead
And there on her bosom, many soaked tears he shed

He ran home to his father With his gun in his hand
Saying "Father dear fatherI have shot Molly Ban"

Her white apron wrapped around her He took her for a swan
But a hush and a sigh 'Twas his own Molly Ban

He roamed near the place Where his true love was slain
He wept bitter tears But his cries were in vain

As he look on the lake A swan glided by
And the sun slowly sank In the gray of sky
