Carrickfergus  Van Morrison

[Verse 1] 
[Am]I wished I [Dm]had you in Car[G]rick f[Am]ergus
Only for ni[Dm]ghts in the B[G7]ally gr[C]and
[Am]I would swim [Dm]over the de[G]epest o[Am]cean
The deepest o[Dm]cean to be [Am]by your s[C]ide
But the s[G]ea is w[C]ide, and I c[Dm]an't swim o[G]ver
And neither h[C]ave I wi[Dm]ngs to f[G]ly
[Am]I wish I could f[Dm]ind me a ha[G]ndy bo[Am]atman
To ferry me o[Dm]ver to my l[G]ove and d[C]ie
[Verse 2] 
[Am]My childhood d[Dm]ays bring back s[G]ad ref[Am]lections
Of happy d[Dm]ays, so l[G]ong a[C]go
[Am]My boyhood fr[Dm]iends and my o[G]wn rel[Am]ations
Have all passed [Dm]on, like me[Am]lting sn[C]ow
So, I[G]'ll spend my d[C]ays in en[Dm]dless ro[G]ving
Soft is the gr[C]ass and my [Dm]bed is f[G]ree
[Am]Oh, to be h[Dm]ome now in Car[G]rick f[Am]ergus
On the long road d[Dm]own[G] to the salty s[C]ea
[Verse 3] 
[Am]And in Kil[Dm]kenny it [G]is rep[Am]orted
On marble s[Dm]tone there as b[G]lack as [C]ink
With g[Am]old and si[Dm]lver[G] I did su[Am]pport her
But I'll sing no m[Dm]ore now,[G] till I get a d[C]rink
I'm dr[G]unk to[C]day, and I'm r[Dm]arely s[G]ober
A handsome r[C]over from t[Dm]own to t[G]own
Oh, [Am]but I am s[Dm]ick now[G] and my day's are nu[Am]mbered
Come all ye [Dm]men,[G] and lay me d[C]own
