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

Capo II

G Am D G EmI wish I was in Carrickfergus,
Am D C G Gsus4only for nights in Ballygran
Am D G EmI would swim over the deepest ocean,
Am D C G Gsus4only for nights in Ballygran
G Em C D But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over
Em G C DAnd neither have I the wings to fly
Am D G I wish I could find me a handsome boatsman
Am D C GTo ferry me over, to my love and die.
G Am D G EmBut in Kilkenny, it is reported,
Am D C G Gsus4On marble stones there as black as ink
Am D G EmWith gold and silver I would support her,
Am D G C GBut 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 DA handsome rover from town to town
Am D G Gsus4Ah, but I'm sick now, my days are numbered,
Am D C GCome all you young men and lay me down.
