Tune Req: Molly Malone

From: MudGuard

Hi all,

as some of you might know I have started playing the tin whistle.

Now a friend has also heard this. And he is going to marry in May.

He asked me if I can play a tune at his wedding - and he especially asked for the tune of Molly Malone as he first met his wife-to-come "In Dublins fair city".

Another friend is creating some new lyrics to the tune to fit the story of the couple and I really would like to play along.

Does anyone have this tune as ABC (or as sheet music)? I couldn't find it here in threads or digitrad.

Thanks in advance,

MudGuard

maybe this will help....

Molly Malone (In Dublins fair city) CAPO none

G Em Am In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty G E7 A7 D7 I first set my eyes on sweet Molloy Malone G Em D7 She wheeled a wheelbarrow, through streets broad and narrow G D- Am Em D G Crying: Cockles and Mussels, Alive, Alive O

G Em Chorus: Alive, alive O Am D7 Alive, alive O G D- Crying, cockles and Mussels Am Em D7 G Alive, alive O

She was a fishmonger, and sure twas no wonder For so were her Father and Mother before And they all wheeled their barrows, Through streets broad and narrow Crying: Cockles and Mussels, Alive, alive O

(chorus)

She died of a faver, and no one to grieve her And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone Now her ghost wheels her barrow Through streets broad and narrow Crying: Cockles and Mussels, alive, alive O

(chorus)

Thanks for all your help!

Nutty's (and Masato's) link has all I need - sheet and ABC.

Pennywhistle notation is showing which holes of the tin whistle (= penny whistle) are covered and which are not, and a plus for "overblown" notes

Spartacus - thanks but I do not understand the chord thing...

Btw, I saved that link into my favourites, so next time I can look for the tune myself!
