All the little boats are gone,
From the banks upon the Liffey,
The ferrymen are stranded on the quay,
Oh the Dublin docks are dying,
and a way of life was gone,
and Molly it was a part of you and me.
Where the strawberry beds,
Sweep down to the Liffey,
I(You) kiss away the worries from your(my) brow,
Cause I love you well today,
and I'll love you more tomorrow,
And if you ever loved me Molly love me now
Twas the only job I knew,
It was hard but never lonely,
The Liffey Ferry made a man of me,
But it's gone without a whisper
Forgotten even now,
Oh it's over Molly over can't you see
But now I'll tend the yard,
And spend me days a talking
I hear them whisper Charlie's on the dole
But Molly we're still livin'
and darling we're still young,
That river never owned my heart and soul.
