Carrickfergus Ukulele Chords

A        Bm  E             A    Gbm
I wish I was,   in Carrickfergus
         Bm     E         A
Only for nights, in Ballygrant
             Bm  E            A    Gbm
I would swim over the deepest ocean
            Bm   E               A
The deepest ocean to be by your side

        E      A   Gbm                 E
But the sea is wide and I can't swim over
             A Gbm     D        E
And nor have I    the wings to fly
           Bm      E       A      Gbm
If I could find me a handy boatman
            Bm  E               A   
To ferry me over to my love and die

              Bm  E              A           Gbm
My childhood days bring back sad reflections
         Bm  E              A
Of happy time spend so long ago.
               Bm E              A    Gbm
My boyhood friends and my own relations
                Bm E                A
Have all passed on like the melting snow

     E        A   Gbm          E
I'll spend my days in endless roving
             A Gbm       D      E
Soft is the grass and my bed is free
         Bm      E           A    Gbm
Oh to be home now in Carrickfergus
            Bm       E             A
On the long road down to the salty sea

           Bm  E          A   Gbm
And in Kilkenny it is reported
         Bm    E            A  
On marble stone as black as ink
              Bm    E         A       Gbm
With gold and silver I did support her
                 Bm      E             A
But I'll sing no more now till I get a drink

        E       A  Gbm                 E
For I'm drunk today    and I'm rarely sober
           A Gbm       D       E
A handsome rover from town to town
            Bm      E                 A      Gbm
Oh but I am sick now and my days are numbered
                Bm     E            A
so come on ye young men and lay me down
