I first heard the Midi of this tune at Barry Taylor's site and started playing around with it, but have only just found the lyrics. Regards, John

THE ROSE OF MOONCOIN

How sweet is to roam
By the sunny Shure stream
And hear the doves coo
'neath the morning sunbeam
Where the thrush and the robin
Their sweet notes entwine
On the banks of the Shure
That flows down by Mooncoin.

2. Flow on, lovely river,
Flow gently along
By your waters so sweet
Sounds the lark's merry song
On your green banks I wander
Where first I did join
With you, lovely Molly,
The rose of Mooncoin.

3. Oh Molly, dear Molly,
It breaks my fond heart
To know that we two
Forever must part
I'll think of you Molly
While sun and moon shine
On the banks of the Shure
That flows down by Mooncoin.

4. Then here's to the Shure
With its valley so fair
As oftimes we wandered
In the cool morning air
Where the roses are blooming
And lilies entwine
On the banks of the Shure
That flows down by Mooncoin.

5. Flow on, lovely river,
Flow gently along
By your waters so sweet
Sounds the lark's merry song
On your green banks I wander
Where first I did join
With you, lovely Molly,
The rose of Mooncoin.

Just as a note, it's not the "Banks of the Shure" (though that's how it's pronounced), it's "Banks of the Suir"--a river that runs through Meath county, among others.

Since Mooncoin's in Kilkenny the Suir in question runs from Templemore in Tipperary to Waterford. It certainly does not run through Meath!
