Dark Eyed Molly
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


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 burning
That lightens my path to love.

No fiddle tune will take the air,
But I will see his swift feet dancing
And the swirl of his dark brown hair,
His smiling face and his dark eyes glancing
As we stepped out Blinkbonny Fair.

And if my waiting prove in vain,
Then I will pack and track ever take me.
The long road will ease my pain.
No jewel of mankind would ever make me
Whisper love's words again.

For in drink I'll seek good company,
My ears will ring with the tavern's laughter,
And I'll hear not his last sweet sigh.
And who's to know in the morning after
How I long for his dear dark eyes
How I long for his dear dark eyes
How I long for his dear dark eyes

Deep and dark are my true love’s eyes
Blacker still is the winter turning
As the sadness of parting proves
Brighter now is the lantern burning
That lightens my path to him

No fiddle tune will take the air
But I'll see his swift feet a - dancing
And the swirl of his long black hair
His smiling face and his dark eyes glancing
As we stepped out from Banbury Fair

If my waiting prove in vain
Then I'll pack and track ever take me
And the long road will ease my pain
No jeweled man kind would ever make me
Whisper love's words again

For in drink I'll seek good company
My ears will ring with the tavern's laughter
And I'll hear not his last sweet sigh
And who's to know in the morning after
How I long for his dear dark eyes
How I long for his dear dark eyes

Her voice beggars description. Heavenly, angelic, divine and some such become trite and inadequate when decribing that unbelievable voice. I,m grateful, Eva, for having stumbled on your God-given gift but I ache for all the songs you left unsung.

If angels sing in heaven, this is a preview of what we have to look forward to.

sinistar426 God's own angel, she drifted down, touched the earth, kissed the flowers, fawns, bunnies, hoopoes, falcons, then circled upwards and beyond, called back to sing for the ONE.

Thank you so much for uploading this . This is is probably my favourite of hers after golden thread it’s so beautiful. She is the best emotive female vocalist, you just don’t get feels like you do with Eva off anyone else her voice is so pure , she is a light !

She's up there with Luke Kelly fantastic vocalists who never gave in to record companies who was always true to herself sadly missed

Niki And Janie

James Murphy yes.

Darcy Bergh

I heard her first on KSDS in San Diego..it was a tribute to her. I still wish I'd heard her earlier and could have heard her live at Blues Alley. As always timing is all
