Molly Malone Lyrics and Chords, James Yorkston.  This is a Dublin street song that dates back to 1884.The youtube video is by Brian Flynn guitar teacher.


In[C] Dublin's fair city, where the[G] girls are so pretty,

I[C] first set my eyes on sweet[G] Mollie Malone.

As she[C] wheeled her wheel-barrow, through the[G] streets broad and narrow

Crying[C] 'Cockles and Mussels,[G] alive, alive,[C] oh'.



'Alive,[C] alive, oh,[G] alive, alive, oh,

Crying[C] 'Cockles and Mussels,

[G]Alive, alive,[C] oh.


She was a fishmonger,

But sure t'was no wonder,

For so were her father and mother before.

And they both wheeled their barrow,

Through the streets wide and narrow,

Crying 'Cockles and Mussels, alive, alive, oh'.


She died of a fever,

And no one could save her

And that was the end of sweet Mollie Malone.

Now her ghost wheels her barrow,

Through the streets broad and narrow,

Crying 'Cockles and Mussels, alive, alive, oh'.

The youtube video is of Brian Flynn [Flyner] who will teach you how to play Molly Malone. Brian plays this one in the key of G Major, where as my version is in the key of C.

The Dubliner's version of this song with Patsy Watchorn
is played in the key of G Major using the chords
below. There are much easier version.
In[G] Dublin's fair ci[Em7]ty,
Where the [A7]girls are so pr[D7]etty,
I [G]first set my [Em7]eyes on sweet [A7]Molly Mal[D7]one,
As she [G]wheeled her wheel-[Em7]barrow,
Through [Am]streets broad and [D7]narrow,
Crying [G]cockles and mussels, alive, alive-O!
Al[G]ive, alive-[Em7]O al[Am]ive alive-[D7]O
Crying cockles and [Em7]mussels, al[Am]ive, al[D7]ive-[G]O!

Molly Malone at Grafton Street Dublin

Molly Malone Tin Whistle Notes

Molly Malone lyrics and guitar chords, the song is used as a sort of anthem for Dublin G.A.A. football fans when The Dubs are playing in Croke Park. It's one of the very few songs in folk music that use only two chords.
