Carrickfergus Lyrics

I wish I was in Carrickfergus
Only for nights in Ballygrand
I would swim over the deepest ocean,the deepest ocean for
my love to find
But the sea is wide and I cannot swim over
neither have I the wings to fly
If I could find me the handsome boatman
To ferry me over,over to my love and die
My childhood days bring back sad reflections
Of happy times spent so long ago
My boyhood friends and my own relations
Have all passed on now like the melting snow
But I'll spend my days in endless roving
Soft is the grass my bed is free
Oh to be back now in carrickfergus
On the long road down to the salty sea

And in Kilkenny there it is reported
There are marble stones there as black as any ink
With gold and silver I would support her
But I'll sing no more now till I get a drink
For I'm drunk today and I'm seldom sober
A handsome rover from town to town
Ah but I am sick now and my days are numbered
So come ye young men and lay me down
