Capo 4th fret

         Dm  C              C    Am
I wish I was,   in Carrickfergus
         Dm     C         C
Only for nights, in Ballygrant
             Dm  C           C     Am
I would swim over the deepest ocean
             Dm   C                C
The deepest ocean to be by your side
                 C                      C
But the sea is wide and I can’t swim over
             Am               Dm
And nor have I the wings to fly
         Dm  C              C    Am
If I could find me a handy boatman
               Dm  C              C   
To ferry me over to my love and die
              Dm  C              C        Am
My childhood days bring back sad reflections
         Dm  C              C
Of happy time spend so long ago.
               Dm  C              C    Am
My boyhood friends and my own relations
                     Dm  C              C
Have all passed on like the melting snow
              C               C
I’ll spend my days in endless roving
              Am                 Dm
Soft is the grass and my bed is free
         Dm  C              C    Am
Oh to be home now in Carrickfergus
                  Dm  C                 C
On the long road down to the salty sea
             Dm  C          C    Am
And in Kilkenny it is reported
         Dm  C              C  
On marble stone as black as ink
           Dm      C           C    Am
With gold and silver I did support her
                      Dm  C               C
But I’ll sing no more now till I get a drink
               C                       C
For I’m drunk today and I’m rarely sober
             Am                 Dm
A handsome rover from town to town
                  Dm  C              C    Am
Oh but I am sick now and my days are numbered
                  Dm  C               C
so come on ye young men and lay me down
