Lyrics

The little boats are gone from the breast of Anna Liffey
The ferryman is stranded on the quay
Sure the Dublin docks are 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 kissed away the worries from my brow
I love you well today and I'll love you more tomorrow
If you ever love me Molly, love me now

T'was the only job I knew it was hard but never lonely
The Liffey ferry made a man of me
Now it's gone without a whisper and forgotten even now
And sure it's over Molly, over, can't you see

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

Now I'll tend the yard and I'll spend me days in talking
Here 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

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