Carrickfergus (Live Studio Session) lyrics

Album(s)  -

Original Tune and Lyrics: anonymous (traditional)
Arrangement and Lyric version by Pierrot

I wish I was in Carrickfergus
Only for nights in Ballygrand
I would swim over the deepest ocean
Only for nights in Ballygrand

But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over
And neither have I the wings to fly

I wish I had a handsome boatsman
To ferry me over my love and I

My childhood days bring back sad reflections
Of happy times there spent so long ago
My boyhood friends and my own relations
Have all passed on now like the melting snow

So I'll spend my days in this endless roving
Soft is the grass and shore, my bed is free

Oh to be home now in Carrickfergus
On the long road to the salty sea

Now in Kilkenny it is reported
On marble stone there as black as ink
With gold and silver I would support her
But I'll sing no more now til I get a drink

Cause I'm drunk today and I'm seldom sober
A handsome rover from town to town

Ah but I'm sick now my days are numbered
So come ye young men and lay me down
