My Irish Molly O Lyrics and Chords


F#m 
Molly dear now did you hear the news that’s  
E 
going 
 
 
F#m 
round
 
Down in a corner of my heart a love is  
B7 
what you’ve  
E7 
found
 
And  
F#m 
every time I gaze into your Irish  
E 
eyes so  
F#m 
blue
 
They seem to whisper “Darling  
C#m 
boy, my  
F#m 
love is  
C#7 
all for  
F#m 
you.”

Chorus

E 
Oh, 
 
 
A 
Molly, my Irish Molly, my sweet achusla  
Bm 
dear
C#7 
I’m fairly off my  
F#m 
trolley, my Irish  
B7 
Molly when you are  
E 
near 
 
 
E7 
A 
Springtime you know is  
E7 
ring time, come dear now don’t be  
C#7 
slow,
F#m 
Change your name, g’wan be game, Begorrah and I’ll do the same
A 
My Irish  
E7 
Molly 
 
 
A 
O!

Molly dear now did you hear – I furnished up the flat
Three little cozy rooms with bath and “welcome” on the mat
Ten dollars down and two a week, we’ll soon be out of debt
It’s all complete except they haven’t brought the cradle yet.

Molly dear and did you hear what all the neighbors say
About the hundred sovereigns you have safely stowed away
They say that’s why I love you, ah but Molly that’s a shame
If you had only ninety-nine, I’d love you just the same.

The third verse wasn’t written by Jerome. It’s thought these lyrics were added later by music hall performers in Ireland or the UK.
