Rose of Mooncoin

Rose of Mooncoin – Irish Song

Rose of Mooncoin Lyrics

How sweet is to roam by the sunny Shure stream
And hear the doves coo ‘neath the morning sunbeam
Where the thrush and the robin their sweet notes entwine
On the banks of the Shure that flows down by Mooncoin.
Flow on, lovely river, flow gently along
By your waters so sweet sounds the lark’s merry song
On your green banks I 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 two forever must part
I’ll think of you Molly while sun and moon shine
On the banks of the Shure that flows down by Mooncoin.
 
Then here’s to the Shure with its valley so fair
As oftimes we wandered in the cool morning air
Where the roses are blooming and lilies entwine
On the banks of the Shure that flows down by Mooncoin.
 
Flow on, lovely river, flow gently along
By your waters so sweet sounds the lark’s merry song
On your green banks I wander where first I did join
With you, lovely Molly, the rose of Mooncoin.
