Performed by Bob Dylan in the second Gaslight show, late oct. 1962

Dropped D tuning (D-A-d-g-b-e')

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

  G                                   D                       G D
  :   .   .   .     :   .   .   .     :   .   .   .     :   .   .   .   .   .

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

Don't you remember, Molly, 
You gave me your right hand? 
You said if ever you'd marry 
I'd be your man
But  you broke your promise, 
Go with whom you please, 
My poor heart is aching 
You are at your ease.
I went to church last Sunday, 
Molly came ridin' by; 
I could tell her mind was changing 
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 ta weep. 

So 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.
