Molly Finnegan’s Bar

 

Verse 1

 There’s a long tall tale that I’ve heard told

back in long forgotten days

‘Bout a place where rear old Poitin used to flow

It was run by Molly Finnegan; full of bums and waifs and strays

And for sure it was the only place to go!

 

Verse 2

 They had Moonshine on the table and a lookout at the door

With a smokestack spewin’ perfume far and wide

Though they never had no problems no trouble with The Law

Yet they always had a place out back to hide!

 

Chorus 1

So let the rain fall down and I don’t care

if there’s a bad moon out tonight

Sure, the cat might moan; the dog’s left home

and the wife’s gonna start a fight But me?

Well I got no fear; I’ll stay right here; gonna

sit ‘t my table and drink my beer

And spend my time at Molly Finnegan’s Bar

 

Verse 3

Now the road to Poitin paradise is paved with gold they say

Where the whiskey waters flow beneath the hills

And the folks are always smiling – in a peaceful sort-a way

With a glass in hand to exorcise their ills!

 

Verse 4

 When my wanderin’s done and I return from places near and far

I’ll hang up my boots; breathe my last and then

You can pickle me in Poitin boys and prop me ‘gainst the bar

Of that Shrine Devine to Molly Finnegen!

 

Chorus 2

So let the rain fall down and I don’t care

if there’s a bad moon out tonight

Sure, the wife might moan; the cat’s left home

and the dog’s gonna start a fight But me?

Well I got no fear; I’ll stay right here;

gonna sit ‘t my table and drink my beer

And spend my time at Molly Finnegan’s Bar

 

Chorus 3

So let the rain fall down and I don’t care

if there’s a bad moon out tonight

Sure, the dog might moan; the wife’s left home

and the cat’s gonna start a fight

Well I got no fear; I’ll stay right here; gonna

sit ‘t my table and drink my beer

And spend my money at Molly Finnegan’s Bar
