Amy_Florence_Nthants Lyr/Chords Req: Molly and Johnny (from Dervish) (19) RE: Lyr Req: loughisle castle 13 Apr 09

This is my Translation from the CD, but the third verse is dodgy because I couldn't catch all of the words:

Says Johnny to Molly: "I'm not going to leave you,
But do not be grieved at my going away,
For although we are parted, we are still through hearted,
And again I'm returning the sweet month of May."

Says Molly to Johnny: "Oh, I will mourn for you,
And I will be grieved at your going away,
For you know very well that your absence does grieve me.
I'm afraid that you might die in a strange country.

"And yes, my dear Johnny, I will live by the sea n by
And though we stand like strangers I will stand your friend.
Through the winds are high n lofty, high winds they are a-blowin'.
My dear I'll be with you to plough the rough main."

"But your delicate fingers our ropes could not handle.
Your lily-white feet, love, our decks could not stand,
And the cold nights of winter you ne'er could endure them,
So stay at home, darling. To the seas do not go."

Her two little her hands round his neck she entwined them
And the clear crystal tears from her eyes down did flow
And her lily-white hands on the deck she kept wringing,
Cryin', "Oh, my beloved, I'll never see you more!"

So come all your young fair maids that soon claim to marry.
Never place your affections too much upon one man,
For first he'll court you and then he'll deceive you,
And He'll leave you as I have done and then he is gone.
