  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.
