Thread Name: Lyr Req: Molly Malone
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Molly Malone
Click here for MOLLY MALONE at The Library of Congress American Memory Collection. This is the 1870 song with words by Thomas Cory and music by J. Gaspard Maeder. It seems to have nothing in common with the "cockles and mussels" song except the name and the Irish theme—but it's worth looking at for the beautiful engraving of an Irish harp on the cover, and the lettering—if you like that sort of thing.
