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

Capo II

  F      Dm  G          F      Am
I wish I was  in Carrickfergus,
         Dm    G   F    F    Csus4
only for nights in Ballygran
             Dm  G            F     Am
I would swim over the deepest ocean,
         Dm    G   F    F   Csus4
only for nights in Ballygran

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

    F     Dm   G         F      Am
But in Kilkenny, it is reported,
          Dm     G        F        F   Csus4
On marble stones there as black as ink
              Dm    G           F        Am
With gold and silver I would support her,
                 Dm   G                  F     F F
But I'll sing no more now, 'till I get a drink. 

        F       Am           F      G                   
For I'm drunk today, and I'm seldom sober,
           Am F       F       G
A handsome rover from town to town
            Dm       G            F        Csus4
Ah, but I'm sick now, my days are numbered,
             Dm    G       F      F
Come all you young men and lay me down.
