Carrickfergus

Dubliners

 BmEAF#mBmEADA
I wish I was in Carrickfergus, only for nights in Ballygrant   
 BmEAF#mBmEADA
I would swim over the deepest ocean, only for nights in Ballygrant  
 EAF#mEAF#mDE
But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over, neither have I the wings to fly
 ABmEAF#mBmEA
 I must find me a handsome boatman to ferry me over to my love and die

My childhood days bring back sad reflections
Of happy times there spent so long ago
My boyhood friends and my own relations
Have all passed on now like the melting snow
So I'll spend my days in this endless roving
Soft is the grass and sure my bed is free
But to be home now in Carrickfergus
On the long road down to the salty sea

And in Kilkenny it is reported
On marble stone there as black as ink
With gold and silver I would support her
But I'll sing no more now till I get a drink
For I'm drunk today and I'm seldom sober
The handsome rover from town to town
Ah but I am sick now my days are numbered
Come all my young men and lay me down
Come all my young men and lay me down
