  Saturday of Folk Music, Riverside Church, NYC - 29.jul.1961  

Oh i wish i was in London
Or some other seaport town
I'd put my foot on a steamboat
I'd sail the ocean 'round.

While sailing around the ocean
While sailing around the sea
I'd think of handsome Molly
Wherever she might be.

She rode to church a-Sunday
She passed me on by
I saw her mind was changing
By the roving of her eye.

Don't you remember, Molly
When you gave me your right hand?
You said if you ever marry
That I'd be the man.

Now you've broke your promise
Go home with who you please
While my poor heart is aching
You're lying at your ease.

Hair was black as a raven
Her eyes was black as coal
Her cheeks was like lilies
Out in the morning grown.  up

  Live, Gaslight Café, NYC - 15.oct.1962  

Oh, I wish I was in London
Or some other seaport town
I'd put my foot on a steamboat
An' sail the ocean 'round.

While sailin' 'round the ocean
While sailin' 'round the sea
I'd think of handsome Molly
Wherever you might be.

Don't you remember, Molly
You gave me your right hand?
You said that if ever you'd marry
I'd be your man.

But you broke your promise
Go with whom you please
My poor heart is achin'
You are at your ease.

I went to church last Sunday
Molly came ridin' by
I could tell her mind was changin'
By the rovin' of her eye.

I'll go down to the river
When everyone's asleep.
I'll think of handsome Molly
An' I'll begin t' weep.

So i wish i was in London
Or some other seaport town
I'd put my foot on a steamboat
And sail the ocean 'round.  up
