Carrickfergus chords
Irish Folk ("There Was a Noblewoman") as performed by Paddy Reilly

Capo II

  G      Am  D          G      Em
I wish I was  in Carrickfergus,
         Am    D   C    G    Gsus4
only for nights in Ballygran
             Am  D            G     Em
I would swim over the deepest ocean,
         Am    D   C    G   Gsus4
only for nights in Ballygran

        G      Em         C           D                   
But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over
            Em   G     C        D
And neither have I the wings to fly
               Am  D              G     
I wish I could find me a handsome boatsman
            Am   D      C        G
To ferry me over, to my love and die.

    G     Am   D         G      Em
But in Kilkenny, it is reported,
          Am     D        C        G   Gsus4
On marble stones there as black as ink
              Am    D           G        Em
With gold and silver I would support her,
                 Am   D                  G     C G
But I'll sing no more now, 'till I get a drink. 

        G       Em           C      D                   
For I'm drunk today, and I'm seldom sober,
           Em G       C       D
A handsome rover from town to town
            Am       D            G        Gsus4
Ah, but I'm sick now, my days are numbered,
             Am    D       C      G
Come all you young men and lay me down.
