Ronan Keating – Carrickfergus chords

Capo 4th fret

Am D G EmI wish I was, in Carrickfergus
Am D GOnly for nights, in Ballygrant
Am D G EmI would swim over the deepest ocean
Am D GThe deepest ocean to be by your side
G DBut the sea is wide and I can’t swim over
Em AmAnd nor have I the wings to fly
Am D G EmIf I could find me a handy boatman
Am D G To ferry me over to my love and die
Am D G EmMy childhood days bring back sad reflections
Am D GOf happy time spend so long ago.
Am D G EmMy boyhood friends and my own relations
Am D GHave all passed on like the melting snow
G DI’ll spend my days in endless roving
Em AmSoft is the grass and my bed is free
Am D G EmOh to be home now in Carrickfergus
Am D GOn the long road down to the salty sea
Am D G EmAnd in Kilkenny it is reported
Am D G On marble stone as black as ink
Am D G EmWith gold and silver I did support her
Am D GBut I’ll sing no more now till I get a drink
G DFor I’m drunk today and I’m rarely sober
Em AmA handsome rover from town to town
Am D G EmOh but I am sick now and my days are numbered
Am D Gso come on ye young men and lay me down
