“Molly Malone (“Cockles & Mussels” or “In Dublin’s fair city”)” is a sort of unofficial anthem of Dublin city. Molly Malone was a legendary fishmonger. It isn’t clear if she was a real person, but is referred as a nice woman who died young of a fever. In memory of her, a statue is placed since 1987, city’s first millennium celebration, at Grafton Street. 13 June is established as “Molly Malone day”, as a date that one of many Molly Malones who lived in Dublin during the last centuries is died.

Guitar Chords and Tabs
‘Molly Malone’ is an easy 5-chord song in a major key. We suggest the key of C major, as all the chords C, G, G7, Am, Dm are essential for beginners.
The melody range that results when singing in the key of C is the octave G4-G5 (see on the Music Sheet following). This range is well suited to most children’s voice pitch. Nevertheless, you could use a capo to transpose to C#, D, Eb, or E major by placing it respectively on fret I, II, III, or IV.
