Bm E A Gbm I wish I was, in Carrickfergus Bm E A Only for nights, in Ballygrant Bm E A Gbm I would swim over the deepest ocean Bm E A The deepest ocean to be by your side E A Gbm E But the sea is wide and I can't swim over A Gbm D E And nor have I the wings to fly Bm E A Gbm If I could find me a handy boatman Bm E A To ferry me over to my love and die Bm E A Gbm My childhood days bring back sad reflections Bm E A Of happy time spend so long ago. Bm E A Gbm My boyhood friends and my own relations Bm E A Have all passed on like the melting snow E A Gbm E I'll spend my days in endless roving A Gbm D E Soft is the grass and my bed is free Bm E A Gbm Oh to be home now in Carrickfergus Bm E A On the long road down to the salty sea Bm E A Gbm And in Kilkenny it is reported Bm E A On marble stone as black as ink Bm E A Gbm With gold and silver I did support her Bm E A But I'll sing no more now till I get a drink E A Gbm E For I'm drunk today and I'm rarely sober A Gbm D E A handsome rover from town to town Bm E A Gbm Oh but I am sick now and my days are numbered Bm E A so come on ye young men and lay me down
