Steve Earle

In the shadow of the chestnut tree I hide
Sword and pistol by my side
Long come a traveller lay him low
All for the love of my Molly-O

I left my family I left my home
Out in the wicked world to roam
No road so low I won't go
Down for the love of my Molly-O

Oh Molly
Oh Molly
Oh Molly
All for the love of my Molly-O

I love Molly Gold only knows
Molly loves diamonds pearls and gold
Bangles beads and bells I bring
But Molly won't wear no wedding ring

Men have dies for lesser things
Vengeance, country, God and King
Someday I'll swing from the gallows pole
A final dance for my Molly-O
