Handsome Molly lyrics

(first release, live version second gaslight tape, late 1962traditional, arranged by bob dylan)

Well, I wish I was in london,
Or some other seaport town
Id put my foot on a steamboat
Id sail the ocean round.

While sailing round the ocean,
While sailing round the sea
Id think of handsome molly
Wherever she might be.

Dont you remember, molly
You gave me your right hand?
You said whenever youd marry
I would be the man.

But you broke your promise
Go with whom you please
My poor heart is aching
You are at your ease.

I went to church last sunday
Molly came ridin by
I could tell her mind was changin
By the rovin of her eye.

I go down to the river
Though everyones asleep
I think of handsome molly
An I begin to weep.

So I wish I was in london,
Or some other seaport town
Id put my foot on a steamboat
Id sail the ocean round.
