Rob O Songs about Molly Maguires (110* d) RE: Molly Maguires: Songs about? 02 Nov 99

I just got the CD of "The Irish and How They Got that Way" and it had an interesting song on it called "The ghost of molly maguire"

The chorus is like: And I'll die with my held high For I fought for the men bellow [and something something something] Down in the black hell hole.

The verses are spoken by Molly's who are about to be hung for their crimes of murder, or for just being Irish. It's kinda a neat song, and I'd love to find a lyric/chord listing for it.

Also, just what is everyone's take on the Molly's of America? From my very very superficial research they seem to be like the Robin Hoods of the coal mines...
