This, I am sad and lonely down in the distant west
The happy dreams of boyhood years at night disturb my rest
For it's in this weary heart of mine to forget it ne'er shall be
Of the days I spent with Molly Bawn a boating on Loch Ri

She was young and beautiful, as gentle as the fawn
Her eyes they shone like diamonds, bright like stars at early dawn
A smile she had for every lad but her love was all for me
When first I gazed on Molly Bawn a boating on Loch Ri

When she said she'd be my bride how happy then was I
The pleasant dreams of boyhood years, how swiftly they've flown by
The heaven light shone in her eyes, she was too good for me
An angel claimed her for his own and took her from Loch Ri

Oh, I have lived a stormy life, my hair is a silvery hue
A plaintive voice rings in my ear in tones I can't subdue
A lovely form still lingers there and a face I think I see
Oh, that's the face of Molly Bawn a boating on Loch Ri

Oh, that's the face of Molly Bawn a boating on Loch Ri
