Dubliners – Carrickfergus chords

A Bm E A F#mI wish I was, in Carrickfergus
Bm E AOnly for nights, in Ballygrant
Bm E A F#mI would swim over the deepest ocean
Bm E AThe deepest ocean to be by your side
E A F#m EBut the sea is wide and I can't swim over
A F#m D EAnd nor have I the wings to fly
Bm E A F#mIf I could find me a handy boatman
Bm E A To ferry me over to my love and die
Bm E A F#mMy childhood days bring back sad reflections
Bm E AOf happy time spend so long ago.
Bm E A F#mMy boyhood friends and my own relations
Bm E AHave all passed on like the melting snow
E A F#m EI'll spend my days in endless roving
A F#m D ESoft is the grass and my bed is free
Bm E A F#mOh to be home now in Carrickfergus
Bm E AOn the long road down to the salty sea
Bm E A F#mAnd in Kilkenny it is reported
Bm E A On marble stone as black as ink
Bm E A F#mWith gold and silver I did support her
Bm E ABut I'll sing no more now till I get a drink
E A F#m EFor I'm drunk today and I'm rarely sober
A F#m D EA handsome rover from town to town
Bm E A F#mOh but I am sick now and my days are numbered
Bm E Aso come on ye young men and lay me down
