The little boat had gone from the breast of An Liffey
And the Ferrymen were stranded on the Quay
Ah the Dublin docks are dying and a way of life is gone
And sure Molly it was part of you and me
Where the strawberry beds sweep down to the liffey
We'll kiss away the worries from my brow
I loved you well today and I'll love you more tomorrow
If you ever loved me Molly love me now
It was the only job I knew,it was hard but never lonely
The Liffey ferry made a man of me
Now it's gone without a whisper and forgotten even now
Sure it's over,Molly over can't you see
And now I'll tell me yarn and I'll spend me days a-talkin'
And I'll hear the whisper,"Charlie's on the Dole"
But Molly we're still livin' and darlin' we're still young
And the Liffey never owned my heart and soul
repeat chorus & last line...
