lyrics

The little boats are gone from the banks of Anna Liffey
The ferrymen are stranded on the quays
The Dublin docks is dying, and a way of life is gone
And Molly, it was part of you and me

Where the strawberry beds sweep down to the Liffey
You kiss away the worries from my brow
I love you well today and I'll love you more tomorrow
If you ever loved me, Molly, love me now

It was the only life I knew, it was hard but never lonely
The River Liffey made a man of me
Now it's gone without a whisper, forgotten even now
Sure it's over, Molly-- over, can't you see

So now I'll tend the yard and I'll spend my days in talking
And I hear them whisper "Charlie's on the dole"
But Molly, we're still living, and darling, we're still young
And that river never owned me heart and soul.
