Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Dark Eyed Molly (Archie Fisher)
Subject: RE: song request - Dark Eye Molly
From Justina and Joyce's cover off of their "So Strong" CD:

Deep and dark are my true love's eyes,
Blacker still is the winter's turning,
As the sadness of parting proves.
And brighter now is the lantern's burning,
That lightens my path to love.

No fiddle tune can take the air,
But I see her swift feet a-dancing,
And the swirl of her long, brown hair.
Her smiling face and her dark eyes glancing,
As we stepped out Blinkbonnie Faire.

And if my waiting prove in vain,
I will pack, and track ever take me.
And the long road will ease my pain.
No gem of womankind will make me,
E'er whisper love's words again.

For in song I'll keep good company,
My ears will ring with the tavern's laughter.
And I'll hear not her last sweet sigh.
Then who's to know in the morning after,
That I long for her dear, dark eyes.

Sorry, I don't know how to submit in a better format. I absolutely love this song! Justine and Joyce do a real swoony, heartfelt rendition. Such regal voices!
