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, lovely Molly, the Rose of Mooncoin.

Oh Molly, dear Molly, it breaks my fond heart
To know that we shortly forever must part
I’ll think of you Molly while sun and moonshine
On the banks of the Suir that flows down by Mooncoin.

Chorus

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

Chorus

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