The evening shadows slowly fell
one evening long ago,
Down by the banks of the blue Loch Ri
where the bonny bluebells grow;
Down by the turn by the river bend
where my daddy told to me,
The story of young Molly Bawn
a-boating on Loch Ri.

A locket on a chain of gold
he then did give to me,
And he told me of a love he knew
and cherished so tenderly;
How the angels claimed his bonny young bride,
to heaven she was gone,
And she left to him another love,
the son of Molly Bawn.

Now where the blue Loch Ri flows to the sea
in a little churchyard square,
The bonny heather grows around
the grave of one so fair;
As evening shadows fall
and slowly strike the dawn,
From her home above she smiles with love
on the son of Molly Bawn.

Well, she was tall and slender,
her eyes like diamonds shone,
They sparkled like the stars that shine
o'er the skies of early dawn;
A smile so fair, a beauty rare
that the sun e'er shone on,
And that smile of love shines from above
on the son of Molly Bawn.

Well, she was tall and slender,
her eyes like diamonds shone,
They sparkled like the stars that shine
o'er the skies at early dawn;
A smile so fair, a beauty rare
that the sun e'er shone on,
And that smile of love shines from above
on the son of Molly Bawn.
