Molly Bán
Alison Krauss Lyrics


Come all ye young fellas
That handle a gun
Beware of night rambling
By the setting of the sun.

And beware of an accident
That happened of late
To young Molly Ban
And sad was her fate.
She was going to her uncles
When a shower came on
She went under a green bush
The shower to shun.

Her white apron wrapped around her
He took her for a swan
But a hush and sigh
Was his own Molly Ban.

He quickly ran to her
And found she was dead
And there on her bosom
Where he soaked, tears he shed.

He ran home to his father
With his gun in his hand
Saying "Father dear father
I have shot Molly Ban."

Her white apron wrapped around her
He took her for a swan
But a hush and a sigh
'Twas his own Molly Ban.

He roamed near the place
Where his true love was slain
He wept bitter tears
But his cries were in vain.

As he look on the lake
A swan glided by
And the sun slowly sank
In the gray up sky...

So sad, yet so beautiful. A perfect marriage of talents here. Alison's voice cuts right to the soul. The images depicted here are breathtaking as well.

David O'Banion

Alison Krauss has a voice that can never be duplicated.
Long may she sing!
A friend of mine is a huge bluegrass fan and booked Alison for a number of the festivals he organized years ago.

I've loved the Chieftains' music for years and Allison Krauses voice blends beautifully. I hope to find the live version on DVD. I used to have it but it went missing during a move. Thank you for posting. Blessings on you and yours.
