Carrickfergus

	  		
  A      Bm  E          A     E F#m 
I wish I was in Carrickfergus 
         Bm   E         A Asus4 A 
Only for nights in Ballygrand 
             Bm E          A        E F#m 
I would swim over the deepest ocean 
         Bm   E          A Asus4 A 
Only for nights in Ballygrand 
               F#m                    E    
But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over  
                 F#m   D        E 
And neither have I the wings to fly 
         Bm E         A         E F#m 
I wish I had a handsome boatman  
            Bm E             A Asus4 A 
To ferry me over my love and I.  

   A         Bm E               A          E F#m 
My childhood days bring back sad 'flections 
         Bm E          A Asus4 A 
Of happy days so long ago  
   A       Bm    E              A       E F#m 
My boyhood friends and my own relations  
                 Bm    E              A Asus4 A 
Have all passed away now like melting snow  
                 F#m             E 
So I'll spend my days in endless roving  
            F#m          D      E 
Soft is the grass and my bed is free  
         Bm     E        A         E F#m 
Ah to be home now in Carrickfergus  
                Bm      E              A Asus4 A 
By the the long road down to the salty sea.  

  A       Bm  E          A     E F#m 
Now in Kilkenny it is reported  
          Bm         E             A Asus4 A 
On marble stones there as black as ink  
     A        Bm   E          A          E F#m 
With gold and silver I would support her  
                Bm     E                 A Asus4 A 
But I'll say no more now till I?ve had a drink  
                F#m                E 
For I'm drunk today and I'm seldom sober  
           F#m        D       E 
A handsome rover from town to town  
           Bm     E                 A        E F#m 
Ah but I'm sick now and my days are numbered  
               Bm      E            A Asus4 A 
So come all ye young men and lay me down.
