“Handsome Molly”
Artist: Bob Dylan
Albums: Live At The Gaslight 1962 (2005)


Oh, I wish I was in London
Or some other seaport town
I'd put my foot on a steamboat
An' sail the ocean 'round.

While sailin' 'round the ocean
While sailin' 'round the sea
I'd think of handsome Molly
Wherever you might be.

Don't you remember, Molly
You gave me your right hand?
You said that if ever you'd marry
I'd be your man.

But you broke your promise
Go with whom you please
My poor heart is achin'
You are at your ease.

I went to church last Sunday
Molly came ridin' by
I could tell her mind was changin'
By the rovin' of her eye.

I'll go down to the river
When everyone's asleep.
I'll think of handsome Molly
An' I'll begin t' weep.

So i wish i was in London
Or some other seaport town
I'd put my foot on a steamboat
And sail the ocean 'round.
