Molly May

MOLLY MAY
(as sung by J.P. Cormier)

Just a lad I was of thirteen years when my father passed away
And I had to take a job as deckhand on the Molly May
And the time I spent one summer past turned into fifty years
And the sound she made as she broke the waves still rings within my ears

She was passed to me when I was twenty-three; Captain Mills went round the bend
He saw a forerunner on the dock one night and never sailed again
Superstition be damned, I sailed her proud, fair maiden of the sea
There was never another like her, and no one for her but me

I saw the time with me in my prime no man could be my equal
Through the eye of a needle I'd sail her any day
When I grew older I couldn't hold her, my courage slipped away
So they put a young boy from Canso at the wheel of the Molly May

Ah, the years went by and the tales ran high of the catches we brought in
There were times I thought we'd sink her, but her spirit would not give in
Words are spoken and souls are broken, and the bottle shattered mine
I could see that she'd outlive me; I'd not win the war of time

I saw the days amid devil waves no man could be my equal
Through the eye of a needle I'd sail her any day
When I grew older I couldn't hold her, my courage slipped away
So they put a young boy from Canso at the wheel of the Molly May

I was there to see her sail away in the cold December haze
But the Canso boy had never seen the likes of the southeast wind and waves
At the harbor mouth he drifted south, right into Lighthouse Rock
And he smashed her keel and laid her low while I watched there from the dock

But I saw the time with me in my prime no man could be my equal
Through the eye of a needle I'd sail her any day
But when I grew older I couldn't hold her, my courage slipped away
So they put a young boy from Canso at the wheel of the Molly May

And there'll never be another the likes of the Molly May
And I wish that I'd gone down, boys, at the wheel of the Molly May
