Question
Hello,
I have trying to find the song MOLLY by Bearfoot for along time but I have to admit I have had zero luck. I'm also looking for the chords as well. Would you please help me.

Thank You
Dave

Answer
Hi Dave,

By "finding" the song, do you mean an mp3, on CD, album, etc.?  I'm not sure what you mean, but I'll give you a few options.

1. Here's a link to a good recording on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdmATKrIFCE
If you have software like Audacity that can record live audio, you can play the video and record the audio from it as it plays.  It can then be saved as an mp3 file.

2. I couldn't locate the mp3 under the listings of the conventional mp3 sites (iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, etc).  But I did locate a decent sounding (192 bit) download at this site:

There are a lot of pop-up ads to deal with, but the download is free.

3. The song "Molly" is from Bearfoot's second album, called "Friends With Bearfoot" from 1973 on Columbia records. I haven't found a listing of that album on CD or cassette, so you'll have to buy it on vinyl.  Here are a few places that have the LP for sale:

And here's a few places that have the "Molly" single on vinyl:

As for the chords, unfortunately I couldn't locate any.

Hope this helps,
Erick
