Hi
I have been trying to find the lyrics for a song that my Grandmother used to sing many yerars ago at parties without any luck.


It started something like this

"When first i met Molly in old Erin's Isle
The times they were bad out there for a while.
I made up my mind.... that I should romeam
And.....to buy a nice home

On the Kerry Kerry Coast
By the Mouth of the Shannon
Thats where I long to be
With the coleen who waits for me
And if ever I return
I'll make my home
With Molly Molone and we'll have a nice home
On the Kerry Kerry Coast!"

Not sure if the words are correct but that's all I can remember!

The British Library has the sheet music for a song called ON THE KERRY COAST, with words and music by Harry Staunton & Harry Luck, published in London by Reeder & Walsh, 1907.

The sheet music is being offered for sale by sheetmusicwarehouse.co.uk. You can see the cover if you click the link.

The words to the chorus are printed on the cover:

On the Kerry Kerry Coast
By the mouth of the Shannon
That's where I long to be,
There with the colleen who waits for me.
When I return again I've made a boast
Molly Malone she shall have a nice home
On the Kerry Kerry Coast.
