​The Rose Of Mooncoin

This song is by Wolfe Tones and appears on the album Belt Of The Celts (1978).

Oh how steet 'tis to roam by the sunny Shure stream
And to hear the birds coo 'neath the morning sun beams
Where the thrush and the robin their sweet notes entwine
On the banks of the Suir that flows down by Mooncoin

Flow on lovely river flow gently along
By your waters so clear
Sounds the Lark's merry song
On your green banks I'll wander
Where first I did join
With you lovley Molly, the rose of Mooncoin

She has sailed far away o're the dark rolling foam
Far away from the hills of her dear Irish home
Where the fisherman sports with his small boat and line
On the banks of the suir that flows down by Mooncoin

Then here's to the Suir with it's valleys so fair
As off times we wandered in the cool morning air
Where the roses are blooming and lillies entwine
On the banks of the Suir that flows down by Mooncoin
