Ain’t You Coming Back to Old New Hampshire Molly Lyrics

I am writing to you, Molly,
while the fair moon softly shines,
As it did the night before you went away,
When I told love’s old, old story,
as it shone in all its glory,
And you promised you’d return and wed some day;

Now folks laugh and call it folly
when I tell them you’re still true,
But you love me don’t you Molly?
Say you’re coming home, please do.

Chorus

Ain’t you coming back to old New Hampshire Molly,
Ain’t you coming back to see us once again?
The folks all say you won’t come back
you won’t come back, you won’t come back,

But something seems to whisper that you love me,
As you did before you went away to roam,
Ain’t you coming back to old New Hampshire Molly?
Write and say you’re coming home.

Second Verse

All along I’m roaming, Molly,
down the dear old village lane,
To the wildwood where we roam’d with hearts to light
In the old church they are singing,
sweetest memories they’re bringing,
Of the girl I love so far away tonight;

Sweetheart mine I’m sadly sighing,
for I’m lonely while you roam,
So then Molly when replying,
Won’t you say you’re coming home?
